Yeah, not exactly fuzzy, but they are for sick children, so plain  
cotton in fun prints:

Sweet! Yes, they really need faces. Is the face on the one on the picture  
hand embroidered or photoshopped? ;-)

It's photo-shopped, as it will appear when the volunteer coordinator  
draws it on with a black Sharpie (yuck).  I really hope she will  
eventually agree to let me machine embroider details, but she  
resisted that suggestion, as that is "[her] contribution". She also  
does not want me to stuff and close them. <shrug>

I am new to this and don't want to step on toes, so....  :-}

Very cute, and just about right for a child to hold onto and snuggle  
without interfering with tubes and medical stuff.  Would she be OK with  
flannel?  It's a bit softer, and can still be washed and sterilized like  
the cotton.

They are provided to pediatric in-patients as well as for kids when  
blood has to be drawn in the lab. Karen is very anxious for a  
supply, she says it really helps with the little ones when they get  
poked and prodded.

Flannel was my first thought as well. She did not want flannel, she  
says they have had poor luck with bears made with it (probably very  
cheap flannel, but I'm not about to argue ...yet).

These are never re-used, they become a snuggie the children take  
home with them. I hope the ones I make will stand up to home  
washing, but they do not have to undergo hospital sterilization.
