A Softie for Ilan

I have had the book "Softies Only a Mother Could Love" for some time and procrastinated as usual. Or! Waited until the feeling struck! I can't always be in the mood to sew. It was time to make Ilan something. I feel a bit bad because I enjoy making cute girl stuff....when I don't have a girl. So I found something really fun to make and now I am on to another one...with plans for more! Making softies is pretty fun actually. They are a great way to use up scraps. I ran out of stuffing so i used left over minky bits. I knew I was saving those for something. The original pattern was supposed to be larger but I didn't feel like finding a photocopier so I just traced the pattern out of the book as is.
