Description

Made for my friends children from a simplicity pattern to have while their dad is gone to Afghanistan. I made one for 4 of their younger children using a ribbon of their favorite color so they would know which one was theirs. I used buttons from the old uniforms too. The two pink ones were practice.

Thank you for thinking of this family. This little camo pal will help. It is a perfect way to send positive thoughts to Dad while cuddling with a gift from someone who cares.

Siffstitch it seemed like it would help the children to have those to hold onto while he was gone. They were made from one of his old worn out uniforms. Thanks for your kind words.

Charwirfs thank you. You know the children loved them but also their dad was so appreciative. Such a wonderful family. We hated to see him go. We are all praying for his safe return.

I lived for twelve years around Fort Lewis, WA Wantmorequilting . Most of my neighbors were young military families. It took support from family and friends to help them find courage to face the countless changes in their lives. Little things, like you gifting something you made, was deeply appreciated and highly valued.
