Due to the fun fur and the google eyes, this toy is not recommended for a very small child.

You could embroider the eyes and change the fun fur to DK yarn tassel’s, insert them using a crochet hook and make sure they are well knotted.

The pattern is clearly written and has many photo’s to help you along the way, to ensure you get the perfectly finished toy.

Gauge is not really important as long as your stitches are tight enough so that the stuffing does not show through.
