I finally found the perfect little toy to make and give to kids when I am out. I eliminated the stuffing as well and these are simple and fast to make so it will do fine. Here is my first one to test out the pattern.
I have put down the current doilies I have been working on because they have given me so much grief I needed a break from it. In their place, I am working on these. The first is a pinwheel and will take a bit to finish with 78 rows although it is not overly huge. It's just that it is mostly single crochet which is pretty small.
