My best friend is having a birthday bash for her 1 year-old daughter and her 3-year old son. These great kids are like family to me, so I wanted to do something special for them. Most of all, they want to continue swimming lessons at the local pool. So we gave them a couple months of lessons.
But what kid likes opening a gift card? What a downer, to be all excited about your birthday and to get a piece of paper. So...I found this precious pattern for stuffed toys here and got to work.
This project was a fun change from quilt making, and the little guys just loved them.
