Pin It Wednesday: Softies for the Kids

Another week, another Pin It! Wednesday...


This week's theme is "softies for the kids". I've got Christmas gifts on the brain already and lots of kids to give gifts to. There are tons of ideas, tutorials, and patterns available for super cute dolls, softies, and stuffed animals. I found three really unique items to share this week. These three projects are just a tiny glimpse into what's out there. Check out this week's pins...


Isn't he amazing? This whale is made from the right and wrong sides of denim from an old pair of jeans. I think that is so clever. The instructions are in Finnish, but there are lots of pictures.

Harvest Textiles is a team of three women who make hand screen-printed clothing, homewares, yardage, etc. Isn't that fabric gorgeous? This pillow would make a great gift for children of all ages. I can see a tween or teen really liking it, too. They also sell a kit for sewing your own.

Hoppy the Bunny by Savannah Carroll on Lark Crafts
This cutie is made from an old wool scarf. He has such a sweet little face, and I love the blue ears. Free instructions and template available for download on Lark Crafts.

I also have to mention the Black Apple Doll, a personal favorite. And my Niblet and Biscuit Dolls :)

Do you have any softie projects on your to-do list? Tell me about it, and leave a link so I can check it out. And if you haven't already, make sure you enter the AccuQuilt GO! Baby giveaway. Thanks!

That whale is so cool! I made a Black Apple doll as a gift for a little girl a few years ago, but I haven't made one for my own daughter yet. I need to dust off the old pattern and get to work! :)

The whale is darling. I also have a soft spot for my robot softies. :)

I love the cloud shaped pillow. It reminds me of a pillow that my son and I saw in a bookstore, it was shaped like a giant chicken drumstick! So funny.
