*to appease my sister I have changed the title so not to offend by using the term plushies

I thought I would give it a go and try my first plushies.  Smiley  They were made free-hand with no patterns and I had to re-teach myself a few basic stitches.  The majority of the body is machine sewn but the bottoms were closed with a whip stitch. The blue one has a lavender sachet in the bottom instead of beans.  It is going to be a birthday gift for a stressed friend.  Hope you like them!  Any comments or critiques are welcome and appreciated!

Thanks so much!  I can't get enough of them.

They are about 4 to 5 inches wide and about 7 inches at the top of the ears.
