Might a tutorial be possible? My husband considers me a fish killer - I've been making fish that cannot be killed in self-defense!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Sorry!!!  I forgot to add that to stuff him before you close him!!! First time writing a pattern!!  I put a jingle bell and 2 beads in a pantyhose foot with the stuffing to make him more appealing to the cat!!
