Thanks everyone.  His nostrils were tricky since I don't hand embroider often and I forgot to add them until after he was all sewn up. Tongue They were supposed to be plain circles, but I love spirals to much to do them any other way!

 He is loved, but my son keeps trying to steal him away from his new home Roll Eyes

BTW he is modified from McCalls M4893.  I just redrew the legs, took off the tail, added a mouth dart (and cute, slightly crooked teeth), moved the ears, redrew the head piece...and I think that is it.  I can't remember it all since I have slept a few times since then, but I saved my freezer paper modified pattern in case he needs a sidekick. Wink

If I missed something, feel free to ask.

So cute! I love his nose and he looks so so so super snuggly :3.
I feel like he should have one of those little birds as a sidekick. You know, the ones that always seem to perch on hippos in pictures.

PaperDragon- If I make another one, I might use that idea and make him a birdie sidekick.  That would really be cute.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
