    1. I am pleased you like them!
      I was thinking of making one a filling it with catnip for my cat. The fact it is one piece also makes it a bit safer for them to play with. Let me know if you make it and if your cats enjoy it!

  2. What a cute rat! I love doing everything in one piece too :) When there are crochet patterns that need sewing, I kinda adapt them to be just crocheting really.

    1. Thank you for your comments. I love one piece patterns. They are a bit harder to design but worth it as I hate lots of sewing
