Our house needs to come with a warning to stuffed animals.
Ye stuffed animals who enter, may end up getting their eyes bitten out by fierce French Bulldog.
We are pretty good about picking up Ellie’s toys when we leave the house, but every so often, a stuffed toy get’s left out and Charlotte goes to town. Maybe she’s angry at us for leaving her, maybe we need to walk her more, or maybe she just doesn’t like stuffed toys staring at her, but twice now, we have returned home to eyeless stuffed animals. After a good Charlotte scolding, I get out my sewing basket and go to work mending. We now have Patch the Bear and Patch the Horse. Kinsfolk.
Don’t tell Charlotte, but I kind of think they look rather adorable with patches.
what clever idea! you will have a whole bunch of cute pirate stuffies one day (or hopefully not!)
Emily chews out the stuffing, probably to get the squeaker out. She gets lonely when her pack is away for the day or a few hours. Hasn’t done it for a long time. I kept sewing them back up but finally tossed one out. Still have the others, and these are her toys. Love your patches. You might think about making toy animals with eye patches. Very cute and cleverly done.
I love the patches. It’s a great solution!
Awwww – they DO look adorable with patches (nice repair work, Mama :)). Shhh…let’s not tell cheeky Charlotte! 🙂
