You can make these softies to keep, for gifts, or to donate to charity while chatting with other crocheters in our groups and sharing your projects.

2021 Softie CAL End-of-CAL Giveaway Prizes
We love to collaborate with fabulous companies to bring you amazing prizes at the end of each CAL Central Crochet Along. For all of you softie lovers out there, Fairfield World is providing one lucky winner with a 5-Pound Box of Poly-Fil Premium Fiber Fill! I love using Poly-Fil in all of my softie projects because it adds great fluff, it’s machine washable and dryable, and it’s made from 100% recycled polyester. Show your support by following Fairfield World on Facebook | Instagram.
