|Coco on the trip West (there wasn't much to see in Kansas...)|
|The Girl said Coco wanted to play in the leaves, too|
We made a stocking for Coco so she wouldn't feel left out of the Christmas celebrations (The Girl cut out the appliques).
The Girl placed a present under the tree for her. Last year I got a sweater and hat set for Coco (I always thought The Girl could dress Coco in them now and have actual ferret "stuff" later if she ever gets a real ferret). This year, I decided to make a hat for Coco from Santa (to go in her stocking) but I wanted to do something else, too.
I had a lot of flannel fabric left over from the pillowcases and couldn't decide what to do with them. I decided to make a quilt - though I had never made one before. I might be the only person crazy enough to make a quilt for a stuffed ferret! I didn't have any batting so I just cut a piece of scrap fleece down to size. Coco's quilt is only the size of a place mat (it IS for a stuffed animal) but it uses almost all of the extra flannel I had left over. It's rough, some lines are crooked, fabric is bunched and gathered in places and I really had no idea what I was doing with any of it...but I know it will make The Girl (and Coco) very happy.
