Wendy and I have made softies for Hope Softies, a collection of soft toys for children affected by the floods in Queensland.
I made a sampler kitty, based on a pattern in the Simple Softies for the Whole Family book (see below). I think she is so adorable - I am even thinking of making another one to keep. Wendy, who is a talented knitter, made Tabitha the kitten. We hope that our softies give hope.
