Reviewed by Dar Brown on 2015-07-21 *****
Fun to make! The stuffable head was such a surprise--just follow the directions as written, and it comes out as a pouch! I used just over 1 skein of Baby's First cotton blend, and used the same size needles as called for. I did make one change: I embroidered the face from the inside BEFORE I stuffed it--much easier. I've made 3 of these
