Although it might take a child a few minutes to create a drawing, it takes a softie-maker several hours to put together a single softie, which entails preparing a pattern, hunting down the fabrics, cutting, sewing, re-adjusting, and figuring out the challenging details.   It’s worth it;  these professional artists take great pride in their work to meet and exceed their customers’ expectations.
