Today is the final day for our April Project - "Fluff For Foster Care".
What a wonderful month of sewing and stuffing for children in the foster care system it has been too!
I am tentatively planning to deliver our "bus" full of stuffed friends mid-May, to allow for all those being shipped to arrive first. I will share photos of our fluff-filled van then and update this post for future reference as well. We are looking forward to delivering all these beautiful gifts and know that they are going to be such a special blessing for the children receiving them, as well as those providing care for them. Very meaningful!
Check our April Project album to see the amazing assortment that has been donated this month! I can't adequately express our families gratitude for the way you have all jumped on board and made this special month EXTRA special!
I shared on facebook when inspiration hit the other day and I just had to put "plans" aside and create. It was just what I needed and also produced some cute toys as my final donations for our project.
I had this image of a roly-poly whale stuffie that I just couldn't shake and had to make a reality. So, I went to work.
And these bubbly friends were the result...
While I was at it, I decided they needed some sidekicks, and so this chunky starfish came next.
Without further ado, may I introduce to you Whaley & Starla....
This first set is perfect for baby. Textured fabrics, ribbon tags and easy to grip parts sure to please any tiny one.
The second set is more colorful and detailed with print fabrics and hand-stitched faces.
I had hoped to have a pattern/tutorial to share before the end of the month, but time just wasn't enough. I will still get one put together eventually, and will be sure to let you know when I do. They are simple to sew friends that are ready to be companions to some special little ones!
Thank you all again! What a fun month!
Be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see what's in store for May....more stitching fun ahead!
