I would like to try to make a couple of these fellas before next Christmas
One of DH's cousins had these on display last Christmas, and they looked like they would be fairly easy to make. Their bodies are balls of Styrofoam with yarn wrapped around them and their heads, legs and arms are covered with felt. I just thought they were too cute.
I forgot to mention before, we took DD and a friend to see "Nancy Drew" last weekend. It was cute, and little Emma Roberts is a doll. But DH and I were disappointed in the basic premise of the movie. Instead of taking Nancy and making here a twenty first century teenager, they made her a freak of sorts - dressing very old-fashioned and being a social outcast at school. When we were kids, Nancy Drew was cool. It was awesome that she was so smart. She wasn't the cheerleader crowd, but she wasn't an outcast. But other than that, it was a good movie.
