Love her! The details like the flower and fabric in the ears are really great! Very original. I haven't used pellets but I've read that if you are concerned about them falling out, rather than lining the whole inside of the piece you can just put them in a little fabric pouch and put that in the crocheted piece.
I found this cute crocheted vest for sale at Nordstrom but they don't have it in my size! I think I could crochet it, but I have never crocheted a garment before so I don't think I can just make it up as I go. I've looked on ravelry but not had any of luck yet, does anyone know of a similar pattern?
