A while ago, I got Beege a kit to make a stuffed animal. She showed absolutely no interest.
Then, recently, she decided that we should have some mummy/daughter sewing time, and pulled it off the shelf again. The kit included a large bear for the kid, and a small matching bear meant for her doll. Because she's awesome (and because a certain someone squealed "Is that one for ME?"), she decided to make it for her sister.
|Introducing "Kee Lily Stuff", and "Cutie".|
It was such a success* that we decided she could, and should, design her own stuffie.
I don't think she quite gets how proud I am of her.
*With liberal sprinklings of mummy "help".
