Now, in the manner of Dr. Frankenstein, it will become ALIIIVE!
Cue much cutting, sewing, swearing and stuffing.
And so I present … El Bandito!
His eyes are a strip of the button placket from the shirt, giving him that desperado bandanna look. His ribbon is from the wrapping of one of my birthday presents. And he is outside in one of the trees, scoping out the front yard for troublemakers. I have already rescued him once from the clutches of the dogs (they think all soft toys are belonging to us). But he lives! To fight another day! For justice!
