I don't have a favourite but the the hippo and lion make me smile. I hope the children enjoy it and it makes them smile too.
I need to make a backing that fits 44" square. Why this measurement:? Could have been smaller so a width of fabric would have done it. It really irritates me when patterns come out so that you have to put that single little strip down the middle so you can stretch the fabric to fit the back. Why not 40" so a width will do? Okay, I've made it up. I think it looks pretty good.
