Craft Hope project 11 is on its way!

The title pretty much says it all, but here are some pictures:

The outside...

And the inside with a very soft and snuggly flannel receiving blanket.

It turned out a little smaller than I would have liked, but I think it will be big enough.
I used this tutorial by Skip To My Lou as a guide, but a chunk of it was just seat of the pants sewing.

This softie was all seat of the pants sewing...if you couldn't tell.

It did not work out the way I had envisioned it in my head, but he has his own charm and my son lit up when I showed it to him, so I think that's a good sign.
It was not my intention to have the seams on the outside, but when I tried to turn it I just could not get the loop part to turn.  Any ideas?  Or is it not doable?

I might put together a tutorial for this little guy...we'll see.  He might need another test run.

Andee has sent hers off too - and you can see pictures of it (and her adorable monkey softie here).

    I love it! The fabric for the tote bag is awesome. And I agree with your son. I really like the softie. Super cute. It was so much fun doing this "together." xo Andee
