I would definetly make the snout "nostrils". You can use some model foam (crayola make some). It is really easy to mold and turns into a soft rubber that keeps it shapes and sticks to each other. That would be hilarious!
I have a question: What type of stitch or technique do you use to attach the legs and arms and other parts to the little animals. I have arms and legs to two teddy bears and I can't figure out the best way to make it look good. HELP!
