Today is my sweetheart's birthday. So I thought I'd share my unfinished present with you. He loves the movie Horton Hears a Who (the new one from fox animation), so it was a Horton themed birthday. I got him the movie and the original Dr. Seuss book, which he doesn't remember ever reading. (I'm gasping in shock.) I also wanted to get him a little stuffed animal of his favorite character, Katie. For those of you that have seen the movie you know she's this minor, rather bizarre little fur ball. My sweetheart thought she was one of the best parts! Of course because she's such a minor character you can't actually find any Katie paraphernalia. So I'm making one, this is the work in progress. It will be a late present, but I'm pretty sure he'll laugh, which makes it worth it.


  1. Is that fun or what! I always wonder what they sell that fake fur for... is that what that is made out of? Dr Seuss characters of course! What a great idea, I'm sure he will get a kick out of it.... does Katie have a face? I haven't seen the movie yet...

  2. Katie does have a face, that's the unfinished part. I'll definitely post the finished product. I'll be happy if it's just a somewhat close representation. And totally recommend the movie!

  3. Hi again! I keep wanting to reply to your comments but don't have an email for you. Can you pop one through to littlemisspepperberry AT gmail DOT com? Ta!! :-)
