Build-A-Bear


Ernie made this- she was so proud of herself! She got the kit at a friend's birthday party- Costco was selling five-packs a while back- and she finished it this week. It had been lost inside the cavernous "art cabinet" which was completely emptied and organized during a recent, 2-hour-long, forced march cleaning of the playrooms.

It was a cute kit- the bear is sewn together at the head, and two pieces from there down with holes punched along the side. The kit came with a plastic yarn needle and lots of thick floss (and of course a plush red heart to stick inside, and fiberfill.) Ernie stiched up the sides and stuffed- I came along afterwards and patched up a few loosely-stitched spots. A fun little project, and she's been inseparable from this bear. Amazing the pride in making something :)

How cool! Have to look for these in Costco. I feel like everyone else has Magical Costco with all the cool stuff, and whenever I go there, I just end up with baby wipes. :)

I so have to see if I can find that. My kids would love it.

I really like the b/w panda with the purple - so darling! I haven't seen one of those kits.
