The Faded Patrick

Since XJ was a baby, she needs to cuddle Patrick during bedtime. She is turning 6 this year and I tried to wean her off, but failed. This Patrick has been going in and out of the washing machine for nearly 4 years plus (since year 2009) and you can see how faded it became.
  
The poor faded 4 years + old Patrick
No matter how ugly it was, Patrick is still XJ's precious.

Can you see the very obvious shades ?
There is a hole on it's tail and XJ doesn't mind that at all.

A hole on it's tail !
The hole was huge !

That big hole on it's tail is XJ's favourite spot
She loves the tail the most and that's explained why the hole existed. She rubbed the tail with her fingers every night before bedtime and as time goes by, the fabric tore. She must give Patrick's tail a 'magic touch' before sleep.

Magic touch

Good night and sweet dreams, baby !

Must hold the tail to sleep

  4. haha, Patrick still looks good to me.. at least you have been washing it regularly.. unlike some kids, they don't even want to wash because they are so used to that "smell" on the toy!!

    1. Oh no, I MUST wash Patrick. Otherwise, will be too dirty for her to hold and smell during sleeping.

    1. That hole is quite huge. If stitch them together, might make the tail looks out of shape. Just leave it this way so I can show her how precious Patrick was to her.
