So cute! I can think of so many uses for these little guys. I am going to make a few up as cat toys, substituting the bead eyes for embroidered ones. They would be great for a baby mobile, ceiling fan pull cord accessories, holiday decorations, and so much more. You can play with yarn weights and hook sizes to alter their size without changing the pattern too!
