I have been having SO much fun with this pattern:
I have five already made up !
I just need to stuff them all but don't know where to put them once the are stuffed :)~
I'm adding a little bit of Lavender to them as well as small scraps to give em' weight.
My daughter LOVES them
I made her a smaller one out of cotton too but she spilled milk on it and it is in the process of drying :)
I would continue sewing them but I am supposed to be sewing zippered pouches. Which I will show off sometime soon.
