The Softies for Mirabel Foundation is being run again by Pip from Meet me at Mikes. I sent these two softies last year and will endeavour to put another one or two in the post by the 5th December. There are so many free softie patterns available on line if you fancy trying your hand at making one, and who doesn't love a cute stoftie?!
blog is a good place to find softie patterns. I also like this cute doll and this friendly monster. Another option would be to purchase some gorgeous craft panels from Kelani Fabrics and make a simple softie.
