    He is adorable and perfect! I agree with the others about adding a yarn or embroidery thread tail. As for a face, he's perfect either way. I also would love to know where to get the pattern.

    He is cute make him happy. Crochet a chain with a small tassel for a tail, or make a braided tail.

    I think he's cute! For a tail...don't despair....take some thread, or crochet thread if you have it, cut it six times longer that you want for a tail...cut many pieces....thread it through a needle and pull thread through, from right to left through about a 1/8" piece of his rear where the tail would come out....the thread will be centered through the fabric so you have equal amounts hanging from the left and right side. Now...separate the threads and braid them. Tie a knot when it's long enough and cut off the extra. Instant tail!

    you can sew the tail on the outside. You know some are not born or created perfect that is what makes all things wonderful. Eddie is special and needs to be loved> you can put some cool eyes on him, maybe a nice scarf (thin one) and called him loved.

    I love him
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    He looks happy to me too. You are too hard on yourself. It looks like a nice job of sewing a hard subject.
