The patterns came from 2 books: Softies only a Mother Could Love and More Softies only a Mother Could Love...both edited by Jess Redman and Meg Leder. I followed the pattern for a couple and then did my own on the others. So much fun and would be a great way to use up larger scraps you might have lying around.
    These are soooo cute!

    Someone suggested police dept. might want them for kids or maybe even hospitals. I'm sure someone can appreciate them! Even a school counselor might know what youngsters might benefit from having something so cute to cuddle.

    Have you checked with the local police & fire departments . Sometimes they like to give bears to children that have had a tradegy.

    No, I don't have a site. In fact I haven't sold any because after I made them I discovered I like to quilt and so I've been doing that!

    They really aren't difficult to make...you could probably have a lot of fun making some yourself using the books that I mentioned on the first post. Give it a try...it's fun!

    Oh, how great! You'll love making them. Half the time I spent was just trying to decide which one and what color/design of fabric to choose!

    Again, another old thread. But, these are a great ideas for gifts. These little dolls are adorable. And, your granddaughter seems to like them a lot. Will have to try out a couple of these. Maybe make a bit smaller and add wings to represent fairy"s. Saw an adorable thread about Fairy houses on here. Will have to see if I can locate that pattern. Still waiting to see if my next grandchild is a girl or not......

    I have to add to all the compliments, because they are adorable and just right for that sweet baby girl. I can see how she loves them. I am old now, but when I was growing up I was the only girl who loved the cloth dolls over the store bought dolls. I did like some later that I could do something with their hair or one ballerina doll my dad got me with joints that were movable. lol..

    Those are wonderful suggestions. I will have to make a note of them for future reference. I always love the helpful feedback. I would not have thought of some of these places to donate myself.
