My nephew’s birthday party was over the weekend and I forgot to take Penelope shopping with me to see if she had any ideas for presents for Ayden. Instead, just before his party, Penelope told me that she wanted to give him a moose. Not sure where that one came from, but I figured we could both work on making a stuffed moose together.
Penelope and I whipped up this stuffed moose out of some very fuzzy (and messy-to-cut) fleece minky stuff in about 20 minutes. I drew out a pattern, she helped me cut and we sewed and stuffed.
The gift was a big win! I need to get Penelope more involved in sewing and making presents with me. We had a great time collaborating together. It’s so fun that she’s at that age now where I can start teaching her how to sew and craft!
