My new years resolution was to make 50 softies so from here on out... they will be numbered.  This Caroler is #2.  You'll find #1 here.  I love getting a head start on things.  It is helpful that business has been slow for the past couple of days and also hubby hasn't had to work.  I took advantage of the free time and made a project that I'd been wanting to make for myself. 
I'd found a tutorial on the Gingercake blog that I just thought was so sweet that I knew I had to do it.  I printed it out and of course, didn't get it done before Christmas like I'd originally planned.
but since the Christmas decor is still up, its not too late, right?  So, I sewed up 2 of these little sweeties.  I made them with some upholstry irreregulars that I'd brought home from trash to treasure and stuffed them with plastic shopping bags so they are a very "green" craft.  One of the Carolers is still unstuffed because, for the first time in my adult life, I don't have a huge stash of plastic bags!  She will have to wait until next week.  You can find the great free tutorial here and also check out Gingercake's flickr group here.

  1. stuffing with groceries bags is genius! I will do that next time for sure! Very cool. I am interested to see all your softies this year Shelly. Thanks for the link!
