My latest creation

I am so tickled by how this turned out. Meet Tammy the Tick!
She's made from white and brown fleece, amber safety eyes, and filled with polyfil. As with my other lovelies, she's for sale in my etsy shop.

Ticks are arachnids, related to spiders (hence the eight legs). Tammy is a fat happy dog tick, and don't worry, she's not carrying any diseases.

ewwwww, I don't like ticks (though I might make an exception for Tammy). They are fascinating little critters, though...

Hmmm. Has she been tested for lyme disease?????????

Dog ticks don't carry lyme disease ;)

Now see if this is what the ticks in my neighborhood looked like I would want to take them home & snuggle them all day! Tammy is adorable, she will sell fast!

That is awesome, but conjures up all sorts of bad memories of having to pick ticks off of people and dogs following hikes and camping trips. Ew. CUTE, but ew. You've successfully executed a difficult pairing!

I don't think bugs have ever looked this cute to me. Kudos!

So gross, yet so good! This is a great way of making kids not be scared of bugs!
