I didn't bead his whiskers, but I thought about threading some bugles onto them. I figured it might look goofy, and to leave well enough alone. I am so excited to give him to her, I hope she loves him! I think she will because she loves beads , and she has a beadwork collection (maybe he'll have some friends at her house?).
I also decided to leave his tag on his little bootie, so everyone could remember his name, and to prove he was a beanie baby.
Now I get to move on to my rivoli buttons from artbeads.com! The idea I have for them I think will be perfect for this months etsy-beadweaver challenge "Hollywood red carpet inspired jewelry" because I am going to make it drip with crystals!
