It would be easier to buy a gift, but I made a couple of these on Sunday. One for a gift and one for my muse, Sofi. The felt I chose seems so naked. He (she) looks cold. The second one has a felt back and I top stitched it, because when I flipped this one right-side out I had a lot of splitting and had to hand stitch it. I bought a big batch of wool felt from this store, and I LOVE IT ALL. I covet it so much I don't sew with it... I need to just remind myself I can buy more!
