The Quiet Family

I made these for my sweet little friend Channie-Mae, for her 2nd birthday.
They are The Quiet Family.
They are snuggled in their little quilted bed.
Notice their eyes are closed and they have no mouths.
This means they are only played with quietly,
like at church or maybe when big bother and sister are doing school.

Here they are out of their beds.
This family somewhat resembles their real life family,
six kiddos including their adopted baby from Liberia.

Put them in their beds, roll it up and tie it.
One thing I'd do differently is sew a ribbon connecting each person to their bed
so they don't run off when no one is looking! :o)

I saw this online back in the fall and for the life of me cannot find it again.

I'll post a tutorial for this in a day or two.

Oh, I really enjoy those! I would love to make some, and am doing some searching for directions on them. IF I find directions, I'll be so excited!
Thank you for sharing. :)
