Free Pattern Friday- An April Shower!

Today's free pattern is in honor of today, the first day of April. Here in Southern California, our April showers are minimal, so in order to bring a little bit of the spirit of spring to my house, I made an April Shower. :)

This little raindrop is pretty easy to create and, the best part? NO SEWING! Yep, those arms and legs are just crocheted on, no sewing needed. Ready to get started? Here he is!

What you'll need:
-WW yarn
- F hook (G will work fine too!)
- Stuffing
- Safety eyes
