I made these stuffed animals for my children today from fleece scraps and these lovely free patterns (whale, turtle, pig). Of course, I modified them a bit, because I have to (not because the patterns needed it, they were great, I just can’t do anything exactly like its ever been done before).
Looking at the collection, my oldest says, “But why don’t they have eyes?” Good question, son.
“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.” Eph 1:16-21
Good thing God gave us eyes…may He open the eyes of our hearts to know the hope to which He has called us!
(and too bad I can’t embroider.)
