A while back I bought two of these Cuddle Critter Kits at Sew Divine. One is a bear and the other a puppy kit.
Last night I decided to sew up the bear kit as today we are going to visit a co-worker who has a 6 month of little boy and for which the baby needs a gift because it's a random drop in visit.
The kit instructions are for cutting the bear in half (OUCH!!!!!) and then sewing his head and bottom ends to opposite ends of the cuddle fabric blanket. I could not bring myself to cutting the bear in half, so I sewed up the blanket, and gave him the bear!
Hope he loves it, and Hope this inspires your own creativity...
