A friend of mine made some of these little softies for some clients, and I just fell in love with them. Joann's had their version of Minkee on sale 40% off a few weeks ago, so I stocked up. These things went together so fast that they never even had time to become UFOs. I finished them even before Jacquie announced her Joy in the New Year Challenge, so they don't count for anything except progress (which is a very good thing in itself)!
Of course, now my girls want to make one for themselves -- my 9 and 14-year-old girls. Go figure. They are pretty cute, though. I'll give them that.
