My daughter begged me to buy the Dolls & Daydreams guinea pig pattern. I finally gave in and let her pick some soft fur fabric, it was a bit pricey, but totally worth it. According to her it is as soft as our cat, and I have to agree. He is super soft and super cute! She insisted that he must be normal colors like a real guinea pig. So here he is. Within a minute of me posting this pic on my facebook, I already had an order for another one! The pattern is fairly easy and of course, super cute!!
