Today G kept talking about plushies and animals. I am not sure what gave him the idea, but he wanted me to make him something! A bunny.
He helped me dig through all of the fabric remnants (that is, after all, where all the fuzzy stuff is) and picked out some bunny body colors with me. He said the bunny had to have a carrot, so we found some orange and green as well. I sketched a bunny on paper and then cut out the fabric pieces and sewed everything together. G must always participate in the stuffing of anything, so he filled the bunny until it was just right.
I don't think it turned out too bad for a first try. G loves it and snuggled his bunny all afternoon.
A wants one now too, of course, so we picked out some fabrics to make one for him tomorrow. I'm going to tweak the second one a bit - nothing like repetition to get it right!
