Inspiration for My Lil' Aardvark!

Hi all! Just wanted to take a minute and tell you a little bit about the aardvark family. I wanted to make a toy for our dachshunds and just started cutting out some fabric. At first I thought I was going to make an elephant but it ended up looking like an aardvark instead! :) Our 6.5 pound dachshund, Izzy (on the top), loves to play with the legs and guards them from us like they're her little babies! Snoopy (on the bottom), the 10 pounder, loves to squeak the body as much as he can! They both love to rip off the different parts and wait for us to attach them so they do it again. The aardvarks are so cute together as a family and they all have "A" names: Ardie (the dad), Adelle (the mom), Adweena (baby sister), and Avery (brother). That's all for now!

The aardvark design is copyright 2009 by me!
