The mushroom is hollow. There is a lid that buttons shut.

Oh, my gosh - now THAT is adorable. I have three little kittens who would love to find hidden toys inside, especially the mouse :-) I really appreciate your sharing the pattern, this will be a lot of fun to make.

Working on one right now (on row 7 of stem, just started) and I am making it out of cotton instead of WW to see how it comes out. I am a big cotton fan and LOVE making kids things out of it since it is the least allergy inducing of all yarn. If you like I can post a pic when I am done. :)

Pixiewings... I would LOVE to see a picture when you are done!

 

The 3 I had made up, I stuffed with candy and sent them off to my middle daughters school for their store.

Word has it, kids think they are cool! :D

I'm on row 9 of the mushroom base and with the colors I am using it looks either like fairyland or Alice in Wonderland-ish LOL. I should be done later today (working on it between other things.)

I have a question, do you have a free pattern up in the 'ville for a kitty that would fit in the mushroom? If not I may just have to try my hand at making one LOL. Hopefully it doesn't become a disaster.

Okay, so here is a pic of the mushroom I made both closed and opened.

mushroom-sm.jpg

As you can see, I used an oriental styled knot button instead of a regular button so it would blend more.

It's not nearly as good as yours but I love it, and so do the kids. Thank you SO MUCH for the pattern!! :hug
