Softies for Mirabel 2010

For the fourth time already, Pip from Meet Me at Mike's is organizing a challenge to get toys for children for Christmas. You can read more about the Mirabel foundation here.

This year my softie is a modern toy, not to be specified as a bunny or a bear or a doll. The pattern is from Suuri Käsityölehti, a Finnish handicraft magazine. Like in the pattern, all materials are recycled except for the polyester wadding.




If you want to make your own softie, you can join here. Pip's blog has many links to free patterns and good ideas.


The Softies for Mirabel have been a Brown Owls project for me every year. Last year I made some knitted bunnies,  the year before I made a pig, and a hare and a kitten.
