Don't tell anybody, but I finished the frog. The first "real" one. I think she's pretty cute. I'll know better in the morning when I haven't been staring at her non-stop while sewing.

She has a lily-pad print body so I'll probably call her "Lilly". Not a big stretch, but I'm going for the easy ones here at the beginning. :-)
Her eyes are not nearly as blue as they seem in these pics. They are much darker in real life.
Her arms are her handle and I will definitely be making some adjustments there on future frogs. They were a major pain!....and I'm not sure I like how they look. (again, I'll know better in the morning) Her legs, however, are Todd's favorite part. They make him laugh out loud.
There is a pocket sewn on her tummy and the opening into the bag part is elastic. She closes with velcro tabs.
Not bad. Not practical, from a sewing/time point of view, but not bad at all.

The legs are my favorite part, too!! They make me giggle. :) It's going to be really cool if the tongue thing ever works out, too. The frog is so cute!! :D

OH.MY.GOSH. I am so in love with this! You did a great job and the legs make me smile. :)

Lily is the perfect name! 8^)

Suggestion: Include the tongue as a closure. Have it slip under a bug attached to the purse....or you could sew on a bug button and put a buttonhole in the tongue. I really like this idea!! I'm so good....but only in my head. You actually MADE the purse!! 8^)

What's next??
