Softies For Mirabel: Some Ace Contributions (+ An Extended Deadline!)

Excitingly, adorable handmade contributions are winging their way to The Mirabel Foundation as we speak! (The bears in the above image are by Teddy Bears Wednesday, FYI!)

It’s always super heartening to see how much people love being part of this project – and really, how much they want to get behind the work The Mirabel Foundation does by making toys for the kids they support. (Find out more about Softies For Mirabel here.)

This week, I’m thrilled to tell you that the deadline has been extended to February 20th. If you were busy lolling about all Summer/cosying down all Winter and had not had time to make something, you’ve still got time!  Phew.

Remember we need simple softies (perfect for beginner crafters) and also more complex ones. So KNOW that whatever your skill level, your contribution will be appreciated.

Make your solo or grab a bunch of friends/workmates/school mates and make together. The choice is yours!
