Plan B. I needed a craft to distract me from my bummed out-ness. So Jude and I made an Eli doll today from one of Jude's drawings.
I traced his drawing onto some scrap fabric and together we used the sewing machine to go over and over his lines.
We backed it with some of the robot fabric left over from his pajama pants.
A little stuffing...
A kissable cuddly mini Eli.
Striking resemblance I'd say!
Not as fun as an afternoon with friends but not too bad either : )
