<p>I made two a while ago, both pictured!</p><p>In step 4, the pattern got the colors(and maybe some stitch numbers, I can't remember) mixed up, but I just followed the pictures. I made some mistakes as well in crocheting them, but they still made two little girls very happy. Thanks so much for this! You deserved to win the contest.</p>

What stuffing is that? It looks so fluffy!
