Full of curiosity and fun! I tweaked a recipe for the pattern I found here. But, as mentioned only used it as a base and went from there :0) You might notice there was no tail on the one with a pattern, I HAD to add one! :0) It's soo cute! :0) ^_^
A friend of mine whom I made through Freecycle loves Hippos and upon request made this one. It took me a few months though only because I kept putting it off with the housework that needed to be done so I could focus on it.
I only just sent my friend the pictures :0) hope she (and you!) love them! :0)
