Thanks for all the wonderful comments about the “year of the hare" stuffed animal. You guys rock, like, hardcore.
I finished my son’s year of the ox stuffed animal last night. You may be able to tell that he already added a stain by kissing it with a chocolate chip mouth.
I used the same basic pattern recipe, and the same fabric, except for the ears. I let Corben decide which fabric he wanted for that.
I’m getting better at making these.
Fun Fact: The nose ring on the ox is my old nose ring. I had to take it out while in labor, and when I tried to put it back in afterwards, the hole closed shut. I guess my body was in healing mode, Wolverine style.

A few of my friends are expecting babies in the next few months, and while they asked for my 2-cents worth of what I liked/couldn’t live without and what I felt is totally useless, there is one subject that we approached but never delved into, and that’s toys. This is what my son taught me about baby toys.
