She'd say things like, "It's really great to be able to make your own stuffed animals!" and many other cute comments. I told her I thought she was a natural, and she said, "That's cause I've been watching you so much." I kept her when she was a baby, and she would point to my machine and say "Play dat, Onnie" and she would take my blocks and put them on the floor. She'd move them around and stand back and look just like I did. She also loved to go fabric shopping and had to feel every one I did.
We agonized over fabric and buttons for eyes which almost made me impatient until I realized I do the same thing. I helped her make the pink one, and we were about halfway through when she wanted to make one for her sister. She totally did the white one on her own. I just sewed on the button and sewed the bottom shut.
We got the bunny pattern from a collection on Patchwork Posse. We are now looking for a cat softie pattern as she has decided we need to make her cousin and best friend Riley (here, too!) a cat.
I am so blessed! (Oh, she chose her blanket for the photo shoot. We don't really have much leopard around here!)
