My ten-year-old niece had a friend stay the night recently, and her friend was carrying around a little stuffed doll just like the one you will be making. Her doll's name was "Little Mikey" from Disney's Monsters Inc. The doll was so cute that I was inspired to make my own version. Isn't it just adorably creepy?
