A Birthday Present

Isn't he cute? I made up my own pattern because I couldn't find one that I liked. I used a strand of red heart and a strand of fun fur held together to make him furry. He's cute, but man, was he a PAIN to make. That fun fur gets all tangled. I'm glad I decided to make him semi-small (about 7 inches tall) cause I think I would have pulled my hair out if I had to make him bigger. Tho, now that I think about it, maybe a bigger hook would be easier?

Very cute! It reminds of the fur on some of the Webkinz animals - some of them have "fun fur" type fur.

I can't crochet with regular fun fur either. Try Bernat Baby Lash. The "fur" is attached to an actual strand of yarn, so it's much easier to work with that regular "fun fur". I think it's softer, too. The only downside is it only comes in pastel colors.

that's amazing! i'm so impressed. i'm excited for the wedding too. it's going to be off the hizzzzoook. the only thing that would make it better would be bowls of armenian string cheese. :)
