I was going through my bookmarks yesterday and came across this post:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=141265.0

I decided to make my own version--I had some dark brown fun fur and some reddish brown yarn which blended together well.  I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Here's the pattern:

Scarf:
use one strand dark brown fun fur and one strand reddish brown worsted weight yarn together.  I used an M hook.

ch 11, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (10 sc )
ch1, turn, sc in each sc across.  Continue this row until the fun fur runs out.

Head (use reddish brown yarn and a G hook)
1. ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
2. 2 sc in each sc around
3. sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around
4. sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc around
5. sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc around
6-10. sc in each sc around
11. sc in next 3 sc, decrease over 2 sc around
12-14. sc in each sc around
sl st in next st, finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
add eyes and nose, stuff, and whipstitch closed.
Sew to scarf end.

Ears
1. ch 2, 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook
2. sc in each sc around
3. 2 sc in each sc around
4-6. sc in each sc around
sl st in next st, finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing.
sew ears to head.

Legs
1. ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook
2. sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc around
3-12. sc in each sc around
sl st in next st, finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing. 
do not stuff.
sew legs to each of the 4 corners of the scarf.

I just made my own photography light box over the weekend, too, and I think this picture turned out really sweet!

Here's a great site where I learned how to do it:
