The Pink Fairy Armadillo lives in the deserts of Argentina.
He is the smallest of all Armadillos and a very elusive creature; he sneaks out from his burrow under the cover of darkness, to feast on ants, snails, worms and vegetation.
This little Armadillo stands 5 inches high and unlike his Argentinian brother, will be out to bring a smile to your face night and day

The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow, there are no complicated stitches or shaping.This pattern does involve making
i-cords, however you could use twisted cord instead.

I class this pattern suitable for a confident beginner.
