This week I spent a lot of time making this little guy.
It shouldn't have taken me a lot of time.
In fact, if I'd just sat down and done it I probably only would have spent an hour or two on the project.
But I made the legs too long and they were impossible to stuff without a long thin stick to shove down the stuffing.
And then I couldn't figure out how to get the arms on the outside of the body.
But now... tah-dah!
I did get the idea from Simple Sewing for Baby, but I didn't use a pattern. I used about a yard and a half of fabric (from Ikea!), and Travis drew the dopey face on Olfie.
Yes, we named him Olfie.
I especially like the name because whenever Travis talks to Olfie, (which he does when he passes him sitting on the couch) he speaks in a thick, fake Minnesotan accent.
I like that he has a little mask on.
