i have had the idea to make these guys (or some like them) for a real long time. i had a friend send me a prinerest-she said she just thought of me when she saw it. i dont quite believe that. but it was just the push to get me to make these guys finally. arent they cute??? i have plans to make a fox/puppy/kitty pattern too. they are cotton on the front, soft minky on the back, the ribbons kids love and some crinkle material inside for noise.
