Craft Hope Cowboy

I made this wonky little cowboy a while back to send to Nicaragua with Eren of This Vintage Chica as part of Craft Hope's second project.


He's a bit wonky because, in usual procrastinator fashion, I was literally stuffing and sewing him a half hour before the Post Office closed on the last day to mail him in time for his trip to South America. I snapped a quick picture to have some record of his existence, threw him in a box, and Sugar Pea and I made a mad dash down the street to get him shipped off in the nick of time. His cowgirl sister is a work in progress which I hope to finish in time for my little one's third birthday. Yes, as hard as it is to believe, my Little Pumpkin will be turning three in a couple of months! I hope my little bit of handmade love made a tiny difference in the life of another child, far away.

I think he turned out really well! If I was a kid, I would love to get him as a present. Okay, I would love him even though I'm an adult, because plushie-type things have a special place in my heart. I'm sure your wonky cowboy is being thoroughly loved.

I hope your little Sugar Pea has a wonderful 3rd birthday!
