Sorry, it's not a really great picture.

I got this idea from a catalog I received in the mail.  I knew my sister, a knitter, would love it, so I proceeded to stitch it up.  I just took the clip off the back of an extra tape measure (the thin, plastic kind).  Then, I traced around the tape onto a scrap of fuzzy fabric, making the shape just a smidge larger, sewed it right-sides together and turned it out.  Then I stitched up the hole up to the part where the tape comes out (yes, it comes out his "butt").
I stitched on some features, using the catalog picture, hot-glued the legs and ears, and voila!

I've seen those in stores but never thought of making my own.  What a great idea!  And the execution of it is wonderful as well - it looks very well done.  Lucky sister!
