Cute Critters

My first mother-in-law had a "generous" build. After she passed away, her extra-large pink chenille bathrobe made its way to my oldest daughter, who used it during a pregnancy with twins, but since then it has been sitting on a shelf.

No more!


Grandma Eva June's old pink bathrobe is now reincarnated into these cute little critters! I've been able to coax enough fabric from the robe to make 4 or 5 of them...I wonder who will find one of these under their Christmas tree?

I hope that the little stuffed animals will be a tender reminder of a very loving grandmother, who cared deeply about both her family and her beliefs. It's been fun to make the little animals, and to reminisce about Eva June as I refashioned her cozy robe into toys for the family members she always loved best, the little ones.

These are sweet, Kathy. What a wonderful way to pass along love from Grandma and Great-Grandma both.

I knew there was a reason I kept that robe around for so long. :-)

What a wonderful way to use a Gandmother's robe They will make treasured keepsakes for the children who receive them.

I think you should name the cat one "Sills." (Is that how you spelled their cat's name?)
