It's not a mistake. It's...um...a design feature.

OK, I need a bit of help with this one.  I have a very well loved Floppalots stuffed dog.  (You can go here http://www.cirque-design.com/portfolio.html to see what I'm talking about.  Middle picture in the left column.  The dog.)  Since having children, I have passed my lovie on to my youngest son, who loves it and has made it his lovie.  However, the yarn tail has come completely apart.  Attempts to make another have failed.

Does anybody here know how to go about making one?

If your child isn't rough with it, I'd suggest the tassel method. Just wrap yarn around a piece of cardboard until it's thick enough, then capture it all at one end in a piece of yarn, tie it tight. At the opposite end you snip the loops free and they'll hang like a tassel from the piece you tied it with. That one looks like it was trimmed to be shaggy rather than even lengths, to me.

Great minds must think alike.  That was exactly what I was going to suggest.

Thanks for the suggestion, but he is pretty rough with it.  Carries it around by the tail and holds it when he sucks his thumb.

Perhaps a few drops of thick glue applied to the area where you tie it off might hold it together well enough? I'd add glue to the area, let it mostly dry, add a little more under the tie-off piece, and stitch the be-jebus out of it when attaching to the toy. That's really all I can think of. I'm pretty sure most things like Aleene's are non-toxic.
