Quick Stitch Kit: Design-A-Softie Sneak!
It's that time again! Hard to believe. Perhaps my excitement and the fun of the April release has sped things up a bit. It's all good in any case. I'm so looking forward to bringing you the Quick Stitch Kit: Design-A-Softie on May 1st at www.papertreyink.com, that I can hardly wait.
This kit was one that I didn't think was even possible. Not that the designing was difficult, but rather, there are lots of bits and pieces for maximum versatility. The kit format is perfect for that! It is all about making adorable, cute, and highly personalized stuffed felt animals and lovies for the kids in your lives. So many options for your creativity to soar. You could make these for years and not have one come out looking like another. The kids in your life will be delighted when they receive these homemade gifts. Or, if they are anything like my kids, will be eagerly watching every stitch and giving input along the way. And Mama better photograph 'em quick, because they've been wanting them as soon as I tie off the last thread. It's our own Build-A-Bear right here at home.
I love making the softies for all the same reasons I enjoy the other stitching die projects I've done over the last few years. For my kids, however, it is a special type of magic. The looks on their faces, as they stand right by my side as I put these together, has been one of wonder and delight. Just typing that out makes me smile uncontrollably. We are all enjoying this kit in ways I hadn't anticipated.
So stop by back here on the last day of April for lots of softie inspiration. And start making your own softies when the kit becomes available May 1st at www.papertreyink.com. I promise you'll be smiling too.
