Raccoon Softie

This is the third softie I have made with PTI's Design a Softie dies.  Unfortunately, the first raccoon I made met an untimely end in a very nasty cat vs raccoon accident.  These dies are such fun and just perfect for my sweet little grandson Jaxon.  He is now 6 months old and he loves to snuggle something soft as he is falling asleep at nap time.

 I used the tie accessory die for the eyes and cut the arms down and folded them over.  The eyelashes were perfect for the paws and I added some black strips to an additional arm to make the tail.  

I will try to take a picture of Jaxon with his new softie tomorrow...if the cat doesn't get to it first!

Edited to add pic with Jaxon:

Oh, Jaxon is just precious--such beautiful dark eyes and as Marybeth said "fuzzy hair"--so cute! Your raccoon is adorable. Bet you are really enjoying having two sweet babies to make things for.

Oh! Jaxon is so cute with his softie! What fun!!!

Well, I thought your softie was cute, but then I scrolled down and saw that the cutest thing on your blog today is Jaxon. At least I know where you are spending your time, since your blog has been so very quiet lately. I hope you are enjoying your grandbabies!
