Frankie (and others) please post some pics on the "Pictures" thread and put the link on here! Would love to see the toys.

Thanks again ladies. I've bought some felt and when I've designed the
"Felix the Cat" eyes I'll be sewing them on.

So far I've knitted a crocodile, monkey and lion for DGS, now on another monkey. The eyes are French knot-style so easy to do.

Love gransnet for you great people with clever ideas. Thanks

You could attach the felt using a French knot with your green wool. Your DGD will love it! I quite fancy having a go at Doug the caterpillar for new DGS but I haven't knitted in years. Doug is the Scottish Energy mascot- he's meant to be a draft excluder but works as a toy as well.

thanks - that's a good idea. will go and look for some in craft shop

That's what I was going to suggest-easier to get them looking correct.

Would felt ones work frankie?

Hi, I've knitted a great black and white cat for my 2 yr-old granddaughter. All that's left to do is to embroider the eyes - I don't want to use sewn-on plastic or glass ones. I have pale green wool and black wool, but every attempt using satin stitch looks wrong. Any suggestions welcome please
