Here are some details about my project:
Category Crocheting
Sizing Children
Style Whimsical, Cute, Casual on

What materials did you use? yarn, crochet hook, scissors on

What are you most proud of? The animals!! You can pull their ears - the lion has a loopy mane - the panda is black and white which is suppose to enertain babies - the elephant has a trunk that you can raise and lower as Mommy makes elephant noises and his floppy ears can be pulled on - the tiger has cute stripes and little ears to pull - the monkey was the first animal and I loved the way his face turned out and yes he has little ears to pull too. on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to try, try again - my husband encouraged me to keep redoing the faces until I loved each one - also keep in mind babies put everything in their mouths - so I embroidered all the facial features so I don't have to worry about my nephew swallowing eyes or noses. on

the photo made the colors darker than they are - I used child colors - red, yellow, blue, green, and a variegated one called crayon. It is very bright and cheerful.
