Pattern Description:

One of my favorite charity organizations is Smile Train ( ). This organization provides free cleft surgery to hundreds of thousands of poor children in developing countries. As they do, I believe every child deserves a beautiful smile. So I decided to design a Knit Smile Train in honor of these children and DONATE THE PROCEEDS to this wonderful organization. My Smile Train is a colorful train with a happy face on the front. It has two freight cars that can carry lots of toys (not included) for hours of fun (& learning colors) for that special someone. You are sure to see smiles in return!

tight enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
