When I saw this tutorial on Purl Bee I thought what a sweet Easter project this would make for my own little lambs.
Like Dana, I didn’t have access to the gorgeous wool that Molly used so instead I used some fleece I had leftover from other projects. They are stuffed with 100% organic cotton, which I like to use instead of poly-fill for most of my stuffed proejcts for the kiddos.
This project, of course, involved a bit of sewing, which I don’t do very well, but I hopped over to my mom’s to use her machine and to get a quick refresher on how to thread a sewing machine! If you look closely at the lamb in the photos, you’ll notice that my lines are not straight and there are a few mistakes. The beauty of making things for my little ones, however, is they never pay much attention to these things. Having a new stuffie is the thrill for them.
I made a large one in creamy white fleece for K and a little one in light blue for L. Of course, only one of my babes would stay still for photos with their new toys! K was too busy being silly to get a good photo with her, but at least one of my babes was cooperative!
