  1. Cute idea but it should have included a pattern. Anyone could see that you need chenille, thread, filling and buttons for eyes. The only thing one would need is. Pattern.

  2. I agree with Robin.
    You could also adapt this idea to use any material that is a personal favorite- an old sweater, favorite t-shirt, patchwork composed of scraps from family “heirlooms”, etc.
    I love the tail “pocket”- stash the tv remote here.
