Grin

i made this for my lil 5 year old cousin Davy who has been sick and in the hospital.
i saw a really great nature show on gastropods and was totally inspired......

the head part consisted of 4 of these hot air balloon shapes with 4 wavy and 4 straight legs.  all seams are tucked inside except the area joining the head and legs....just pinch the tube flat and lay the legs flat and sew.....i used some knit velor so i didn't have to worry about the raw edges

it was really simple and i even had time to satin stitch a D for Davy on one of the feet....kinda like in Toy Story....

enjoy!

What a fun toy! It looks different enough to be cool, and cuddly enough to comfort.
Thanks for sharing!
