TESTERS FOUND preview #16!! !for Piggyback Pals

Recommended Posts

Thank you to all who vounteered for testing!

 

o.k..kind of a dorky name...but it describes the idea I have

 

These were inspired by the monkeys I seen at carnivals as prizes.

You know, those games that very few people win at....

They can either be sewn together so they face forward, to put on a door knob or such, or sewn together so they look to the side like I did with the monkey.

I am working on the cat (wanted to do the tiger but don't have the felt yet) and am almost finished, just need to find my pipe cleaners and velcro (I know they are around her somewhere:think ) and embroider the face, the cat is all put together otherwise and the pattern was very easy to follow!

 

Thanks for letting me test Kristen!:cheer

I want to do the monkey next.:)

If you ever decide you need more testers, please let me know! These are sooo cute!! I am just amazed at your talent. Every pattern you put out I think "it can't possibly get any better than this" but you always prove me wrong. :)

I am dying to show this to someone!

This is the first time I have done an open mouth animal.

Before the eyes and body were on, it looked like a green pac man.

 

I still have quite a bit of work to do on it,...but what do you think so far?preview.jpg

Kristie - the frog is awesome! I've not done an open mouth before (I don't think) but I did start to do one and had read the pattern for it. It wasn't as cute as your frog!!

 

I'm going to do the Tiger - and probably crochet my stripes then sew them on. I'm going to give it to a rather rowdy young man and I want the stripes to stay put. I'll be starting tomorrow - just don't have time today - ugh!
