Comments

  1. Loved the pattern! I continued the pattern in reverse just for the head and got a double head which I seamed on the sides. The scarf became a puppet as well. My little granddaughters love playing with (and occasionally wearing) their snakes. thanks for a simple and fun project.

  2. This is very cute, my daughter will love it!
