My nephew has invented an alternate persona: he is Freddie the Rescue Cat. We're not entirely sure where Freddie came from, but my nephew likes firetrucks, firemen, etc. as well as cats, so apparently he linked these interests together into one character.
I thought it might be fun to give my nephew a real Freddie for Christmas, and since he's started pre-school this year I didn't think it would really be appropriate to give him a softie that he would carry around. Thus, the wearable softie, which just happens to fit perfectly with this month's theme.
As a superhero, I thought Freddie needed the appropriate garishly-colored superhero garb. And so the turquoise and yellow hat, t-shirt and cape. He has small disks of velcro on the back of his paws so that he can scale the t-shirt and other fabric surfaces (and he has velcro on his ears, too, to keep him from pitching forward). Freddie is the first softie I've made, and I had a lot of fun with him.
