New Ugly Friends

My boys always get a new "friend" for Christmas.  They really don't need any new friends.  They have a ton already!  Now that I have taken up sewing, I wanted to try to make them a new fun friend.  Have you seen Ugly Dolls?  I don't know why, but I love them!  They are pretty I decided to try to attempt making them.  I think that they are made with a wool or felt, but I wanted something softer.  I went with flannel.  I actually took the boys to the store & let them pick out their flannel color.  For everything else I just used felt that I had left over from other projects.  I just sketched out what I wanted & got busy.  I love how they turned out & can't wait until the boys open these on Christmas.  {I only spent $5.00 for the felt & then everything else I already had.  I even stuffed them with the fluff from an old pillow.}

My favorite thing is the heart that I added on the back.  That was my own sweet touch for my boys.


  1. I've got a new blog and these ugly dolls are my first feature! I'd love it if you stopped by and grabbed a button! Thanks! P.S. the heart is totally swoon worthy!
