facelift...

this is hippo
(also affectionatly called "appo" by those who love him)...
...he has been loved for almost three years, that little fur rubbed and rubbed-off...
it started with one hole on his head that just didn't have anymore strength to be sewn shut...
so it became a patch...then came the minky tummy and heart...
 ...now hippo is patchwork hippo...
he is sooooo cool, and still very loved.
awesome idea, auntie!

awesome idea! Ike has an elephant that he affectionately chews on (ewwww) when he's falling asleep. needless to say he is looking VERY tattered, so much so that Ike asked me to sew him tonight! looks like i have an idea on how to get more life out of his beloved animal! and may i say....excellent work!!
