I didn't really have any intention of actually buying it for her. Until, she looked at me and batted her big brown eyes and said in a small pitiful voice 'if I had a chipmunk like that, I would dress it up, give it tea, and keep it safe.'
Then her Aunte K said, 'Aunt Lynea can sew some clothes for the little chipmunk'
...huh? ..sew what?...
I tell ya, I tried.
I made the hat and the bag.
I really, really tried.
I could not get motivated to sew clothes for a chipmunk.
No worries, I plan on reminding my niece that her Aunte K knows how to knit :0)
