I was sitting at work one day, twiddling my thumbs and staring at my yarn scrap stash.  And then decided I needed something to guard my monitor.  So he was born!



He is made from a tan scratchy acrylic yarn my cousin gave me from her stash (no labels of course) and his eyes are embroidered own from a dark blue Simply Caron.  I love him and his super stretchy legs Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

I need to get rid of stuff!! i have soap kits, bath salt kits, lip balm kits, plain canvas tote bags, fabric paints, and other stuff i'm trying to clean out. It'd be cool to swap for yarn, but i'll give it away FREE! PM me if you're interested!!!

I made the legs by chaining 18, then single crochet x's 3 in each chain.  Slip stitched on the last three to make a straight part to sew onto the body.
