Happy Hoppy Frog was inspired by my big bullfrog that lived in my fish pond at my last house. He was the biggest bullfrog I had ever seen and I can not tell you how much I loved that frog. He was a beautiful singer - as far as frogs go. I would mute the tv and listen to him when I heard him calling. I was not a frog lover before he moved in but I am now! Happy Hoppy Frog is a fairly easy pattern. I only gave it a higher skill level due to his knees. There is a youtube video to help you through it so I am confident that even an advanced beginner can make a Happy Hoppy Frog. To vie the video check out my youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/craftydebdesigns If you have time, check out the blooper reel. All I can say is that camcorder's demo mode is really bizarre.
