A Hug from Home

I made this little guy (a modification of a Jean Greenhowe pattern) to tuck into Liat's suitcase before she left for Poland. I sewed a little bag for him, and attached a tag that said "A hug from home." I hid it with her pajamas, knowing she would find it on the first night, and she did.

She sent me a text message that she really loved it, and mentioned it again when we spoke last night. The idea was that whenever she felt she needed a hug, she could squeeze this little guy (he fits right in the palm of the hand) and know that I was sending her a hug.

What can I say? I'm corny like that.

I think that is such a special touch that she will long remember and pass on to her children.

She will remember this for a long time. That was so sweet of you and yes, corny but the kids appreciate corny even when they say they don't. I think this is a great idea that your girls could give to their friends. How long does it take to make one?
