Woobie finally finished!
Well, this is not perfect, but I think it's acceptable. I think that this project will move along faster--and probably look better--the next time around. I learned from my mistakes! I redid the face several times, and it still doesn't look symmetrical to me. I used Knit Picks Shine Sport. I used this yarn once before, but I had forgotten how soft it is! Now all I have to do is wash and block. Yeah!

Thanks to Betty and Jan for your help!

That is sooo SWEET! Love the darlin face on the bunny and I can just picture a little one dragging this Woobie by one ear as they make their way to bed.

Beautiful. Just Beautiful.

Oh how adorable!! I love it!

I don't think my face was perfect either. It doesn't matter in the end.

They aren't hard, but you'll definitely have to learn some new techniques. I wouldn't classify them as super easy, though.

This is the pattern. You can buy them singly or the e-book with 8. I bought the e-book and made the zebra.

If you look up Woobie you'll see other patterns, but they aren't as well written or as cute IMO.

Here's my zebra.
