Stuffy Surgery.

My 8-year old niece loves the stuff toys that I make her. I think she has over 10 of them that I've made for her over the past couple of years. However, out of all of them, she seems to cherish the one pictured below the most. It was one of the first ones that I ever made for her. I asked her why she loves it the most, and she responded "because you told me to". I really don't recollect instructing her to love it, but I am glad that she does. :)



The stuffy's name is Grape. Almost all of her stuffies are named after food items. Anyway, Grape needs some serious surgery; her neck is completely limp. For an entire day, my niece could not find her. She even made missing posters and offered a reward (16 cents). My niece figured that Grape was alluding her surgery. haha. We finally found her and it is my goal to try to fix her up by the end of this week. My niece suggested that I give her some cosmetic surgery while I'm patching her up like giving her pink lips and redoing her nose. hahahaha However, I convinced my niece that Grape was perfectly content with her looks. ;)
