I wanted to make a present for a friend's baby for Christmas and I remembered seeing these funky toys in Sew magazine. I tore the instructions out and threw the magazine away. I'm sure I downloaded the template before doing this but apparently not. I drafted the pattern based on the magazine pictures and the finished size in the instructions.
I thought this was so cute. I really enjoyed the applique / embroidery. Making those little faces was satisfying. Having made one I decided to make another - equally cute!
