What a cute idea for sewers and knitters too! A good ?old fashioned? design, that we used to find in the ?Five and Dime? store! They used to be made out of fabric, and everyone?s mom had one!

Now you will always know where they are. Finished size is about 3 1/2 inches tall. Uses worsted weight yarns, and knitting needles, US # 7. You will also need some pillow or toy stuffing.
