This is Sonny.
A few weeks ago I was having a bad run of shifts at work, and was feeling pretty glum. Through this the poor boyfriend comforted me and put up with my awful low moods.
Unbeknown to me, he had hatched a secret plan to make me feel better.
He braved the old ladies at spotlight, and brought yellow felt, floral cotton and two blue buttons.
He was too overwhelmed by spotlight to find stuffing, so he went and brought cotton balls from the supermarket.
He searched for the perfect teddy bear pattern online...and then traced it off the computer screen!
And late at night, using the ancient sewing machine stored in our flat, he painstakingly made Sonny.
It must have been a long and frustrating process, given that he has never sewn before, and the pattern he had found had no instructions...
Once finished The boyfriend presented Sonny to me,
the most perfect bear in the world.
Just because I had been sad.
What a guy!


  1. oh gosh, that is the sweetest thing ever! Sonny must mean the world to you.

  2. OOO girl....this man! I love that Sonny is made of cotton balls.

  3. Oh my gosh, that is the most adorable story ever!
