With wide eyes and head and front legs stuck partially out of his shell, Timmy tries to determine whether or not it’s safe enough to come out of his shell completely and explore the world around him. This cute guy makes a nice huggable toy or a pillow. He’s especially nice for propping yourself up in bed while getting that last bit of knitting or crocheting done before turning out the light. The terror of small dogs, Timmy is a gentle giant who actually just loves big hugs to comfort him in a scary world.
NOTE: Each Franciscangypsy Designs toy comes with at least one video tutorial to make your experience crocheting these patterns easier and more enjoyable. Please let me know if anything is not clear or you have any questions!
