As soon as I started making the head I couldn't put him down, and just had to get him finished.
I really hope he is popular as I want to make some more in different colours. I am already planning a blue and lime green one and have thought about a girly pink one with little embroidered flowers on the tummy. The combinations are endless.
I am hoping that they will go down well at the local craft fairs along with the Diddy Dogs. I have until Spring to get enough of both made up to fill a table, along with the artist bears.
The Alley Cats have googly eyes and fluffed up wool that makes them unsuitable for young children.
They are really made as display items/ shelf sitters, not as toys.
