  3. Lovely toy. I am confused with the patt tho. There doesn’t seem to be a body piece and do you need 4 leg pieces? Instructions say: Sew inner leg to the body piece on both legs. I can’t find the body piece to sew the inner legs to and what are the outer legs made from? Is it just me being dumb?

  4. i have to make this 🙂
