Way back in 2007, in the Over 30 Fine Wine Geezer Swap I was given bronzfrog to send my item to.

Her #1 pick was a red-eyed tree frog.  I did some google searching for a pattern and ended up finding one right here on Craftster.  wibit had designed one and I based my frog on hers.  The only problem I ran into was finding red eyes, which didn't happen, so my frog had brown eyes.  All 4 legs have pipe cleaners in them so they can be bent to any shape.

What a cutie! Brown eyed tree frogs are much more rare, so I think it worked out well in the end Smiley

Interesting idea, I'll have to keep that in mind for another time.
