I love hippos! They are actually graceful in water, but if you get between them and their water hole, you better watch out!
I made this for my daughter for her 1st birthday. The pattern is from 1973, and it was missing all the alligator pieces, but I only wanted it for the hippo, anyways.
I've never made a stuffed animal before and boy were those seams tricky at places!
