      This is so cute! Your instructions are clear and the pictures help. I think often crafts such as these can be intimidating, if a person isn't confident at drawing. Your step by step pictures, take away the worry.

      This would be an ideal project for schools or scouts.

      Great job.

      I'm sharing this one.
