What are you most proud of? I give these out at Halloween (instead of candy) put on a halloween decorated purchased pencil. One year a little girl saw I was giving these out and said "Mom! THIS is the place!" since she had gotten one the year before and was glad to find out where to get more. This Halloween a mother told her kids that I had spent time making these especially to give out and they should give me a special "thank you" for such a nice gift.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure you know how to go into the ring made and not work in the stitches but thru the middle of the ring. It does make a difference on how they turn out. Don't be afraid of the curling as that is part of the charm of the "critter."

These are only about 2-3 inches tall, so are easy to make. Be sure to use a good glue to put on the eyes as they can fall off (I use tacky glue instead of regular white glue, it holds better).
