Pinchie Needs Some TLC

This is Pinchie. She and my granddaughter have been best friends since the very beginning. 

Pinchie gets her name from her now almost nonexistent tail, which Soph pinched and twisted and loved until. . . Well, it mostly fell off.

I've done repair on Pinchie before. A best friend doesn't get to be seven without a few skinned knees.

But, it's gotten to the point where Pinchie needs some real intensive care to keep her from completely falling apart.

Soph and I picked out some fabric that will be fashioned into "bandaids" for her buddy, and I have just two days to complete the job.

A girl and her bestie can't be separated for long!


  1. Pinchie is a great example of your gal's Velveteen Rabbit. So adored. Happy patching :) This tale reminds me of my childhood loves who were mended by babysitters and a beautiful book of lovies and their stories. Wonderful post.

    1. Thanks, Nancy! Pinchie's repair made it better than new according to Sophie.
