**If you are here for the final day of the Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway, scroll down to the next post!**
I'm beginning to wrap up this months project around here and all my little rag dolls are now stuffed! And whew! That was quite a job! I have always admired those that can make such adorable plushies, but I don't think I fall into the catagory....no, I'm sure I don't after this bunch of pig-tailed cuties! :) Stuffing is a lot of work! And other than just a few simple toys for the kids, this is the first stuffies I've made, and certainly the first time I've done so many at once. Probably wouldn't have been so tiring if there were just a few I suppose. Nonetheless, these little cuties are all stuffed and ready to be stitched closed.
I used some basic fiber-fil from JoAnn's and a wooden dowel to get it into the points of the pigtails and the long, narrow arms and legs. Maybe there's a better "tool" for this, but this seemed to do the job well. However, if you have a handy way for stuffing, please, please share! I'd love to learn!
Next step...getting them dressed! I'll share another freebie for that in an upcoming post. I think they are going to be well worth the work when all done. And I imagine they will make some little girls very happy! They sure make me smile!
Anyone else have any plushies for giveaway progress to share? I'm still trying to decide where these will be best donated, so I'd love to hear your ideas on that too!
Happy Stuffing!!! ;)
