I made some very cute presents for my nieces. First I made Simplicity 1238, an elephant with clothes and carrying case. I changed the elephant into a cat since my niece loves cats. This project was very time consuming and used a lot of effort. I made some changes to the clothing to make it easier for a two year old to use.
I then made Simplicity 1083, a puppy with a bag, bed and blanket. This pattern is really cute but it was a pain to make, mostly due to unclear instructions. I finally figured it out and I think it came out really nice.
I also added a collar and leash which I made out of webbing and a clasp.
