    So glad you found our caterpillar made from an old pair of tights. I must offer a gentle correction, however — we stuffed our cutie with balls of STYROFOAM Brand Foam and not tennis balls. Thank you!

      Thank you so much for visiting and commenting Sharon! Profuse apologies for the inaccuracy (that’s what I get for rushing out a topical post and using Pinterest as a search engine)…

      I do however think that your wonderful caterpillar would work just as well using old tennis balls. Of course it would be a little heavier, but I think it’s great to recycle wherever possible when crafting! 😉

      What do you think..?

      Huge thanks for your fabulous idea. Great blog by the way – I love your panda too:
