To make ears I pinch the two top edges and stitch back and forth through the pinched part until the ears look like how I want them. Then I stitch the v shapes on the chest. This pattern is a bit different then the 2 other ones I’ve written so let me know if something doesn’t make sense. Usually I just memorize the patterns. I’m just now starting to write them down. J

  7. Too cute! I love these. I've made some myself but yours are so cute! Think I will give one to my daughters teacher at the end of the year with a note that says.. 'Thanks for the knowledge, it's been a HOOT' or something like that. lol
