Please be kind.

The projects in this section of craftster are so amazing and inspiring and I know mine is very very simple.

I bought a panel from an etsy shop called Voodoo Rabbit (I did blog the link if you need it) and started sewing the second it arrived.

I'm completely in love. Hehe. Actually, my daughter is too.

For me, this project was a bit deal because I managed to stuff the doll solid (the best stuffing job that I've ever done) and when I hand sewed the dolls closed they were neat and almost invisible! I'm really pleased. And kinda relieved that I didn't waste such a gorgeous piece of fabric.

This is a beautiful project! I'm totally impressed with the way you were to fill it with stuffing so evenly. Beautiful project!  Cheesy

That is super cute...you and your daughter should be in love!!!  Very clean work, and I think I may need to jump over to that etsy shop, because that fabric is gorgeous!!!  I especially love the little bunny...GREAT JOB!!!

Thank you so much! I've never been able to stuff so evenly or neatly before so I'm very excited about this one.

Lanikins, the panels are so gorgeous and to get four dolls for something like $10 I think is a bargain!

I'm not sure that I would attach the animal to the doll next time but I really don't want it to get lost and I couldn't think of anything else to do.
