Stuffed Frogs

A friend of mine was wanting to start up a FROG (Fully Rely on God) ministry to spread hope to kids with medical conditions.  Her son has a rare heart condition and she wanted to do something to help give hope to other families and kids who spend a lot of their time in the hospital.   You can read about Jessica’s son, Paxton, and the FROG ministry here.  If you want to help out or have a child who might benefit from this ministry, check out the Spencer Family FROG Facebook Page and communicate with Jessica there.

So back to today’s project, Jessica was needing some frogs and asked if I could make some.  I hadn’t tried but was up for the challenge.  I found a stuffed  frog template on Lil Blue Boo, a blog I follow and gave it a whirl.  I never quite got the frogs to turn out how I wanted them to and it took me quite a long time just to make one little frog.  Based on that, I couldn’t be oh much help to Jessica and boy am I glad she decided to purchase the frogs at stores because the ministry has taken off and has sent out 75 frogs in two months!

I would only do this project again if I knew someone really loved frogs and would appreciate them being handmade.  Otherwise, I’d opt for a different, easier gift.  I forgot to take pictures along the way, so you’ll have to check out the stuffed  frog template on Lil Blue Boo for directions.  The only thing I changed was I used felt for eyes and glued them on because buttons are a choking hazard for little kids.  I also sewed on a bow for the girl frogs and a heart on the underside of the frog since they were going to heart patients originally 🙂
