Not much room for practical purposes, but it might not matter all that much because this guy is too darn cute! This is a great EASY craft to gift to someone who has just about everything. They could be customized, too. Perhaps you could use that Tulip fabric paint and freehand the last name on to the red scarf! Neat!
