Cholly's Secret!

Once upon a time, there was a doll named Cholly.  We did some searching, and this is what a regular Cholly looks like:

I'm new and shiny!

But if you REALLY love a Cholly, then THIS is what it looks like:

Times two! That's how much love Cholly got!

Our task was to make a new lovey for the next generation using the loved Cholly as our muse. And so after some careful consideration and swatting, we decided to make a "Secret Cholly."  We used the parts we could, and anything that was extra loved was tucked in side!

Wrapped in batting...

And snuggled in!

With some stitching and stuffing, Secret Cholly was ready to be a lovey again!

Ta da!

We even kept the little tag on the back!

Thanks for coming Cholly and letting us get you ready for more love!

Elegant Ellie-phant!

Another Ellie the Elephant, this time love-worn and dog nibbled.

I'm yummy, that's for sure!

Ellie needed a serious bath.

And an ear scrub. 

And some patching.

But after a bit of lovey repair, Ellie was ready for more cuddles!

All set!

Thanks for hanging out with us, Ellie!
