Softie of the Week, Lil’ yellow Softie

Posted by on May 24, 2011

This week’s pattern is actually the first softie I ever made. He’s a cute little horned monster made from cuddly fleece and bits of my favorite cottons–you know the ones that you just can’t bear to throw the scraps away? He has large, safety lock eyes and a felt nose. As a bonus today I also have some free prizes to give away! Help me spread the word about the free softie of the week pattern.
