Elaine found a stuffed animal pattern in a collection she was going through. It made me laugh because its the pattern for Dolphie who lives upstairs on the corner of a spare bed. He was my grade 7 home-ec project.
For many years I would stretch out on the bed to read with him as my pillow so he's a little lopsided. I did eventually make the hippo as well but it seems to have gone to the thrift store as I don't see it in the bag of things that are currently waiting to head there.
