Meet Mini Murph

Oh my gosh. Do you ever make something for someone and then, not want to give it away? I suppose it makes the giving even more an act of love right? Man, it's a good thing I love my youngest nephew. Because, I really want to keep the softie that I just made for him.

Meet Mini Murph. Isn't he adorable? He's the very first 3-D softie that I have made with four legs and two ears and everything. I altered the pattern generously offered by Allsorts found here and sewed him inside out, then turned him out, as opposed to binding him like she does her dog.

His name is Mini Murph because my sister's dog's name is Murphy.

He's a black labradoodle and he wears a blue collar. My littlest nephew is crazy for dogs. (You should have seen the adorable dog birthday they had for him, complete with eating desert from dog bowls! Genius runs in the family.) So this little fella is destined to be loved.

And since I love my littlest nephew because he's adorable and tough and sweet and all, I will give away Mini Murph with a happy heart.

But, I am betting he's going to have a little of brothers and sisters soon enough...
