Fuzz the Dog

"A classic comic strip of my youth featured an little man named Ziggy and his adorable dog, Fuzz. I was inspired by Fuzz to create an amigurumi with his big dark eyes, round nose, and over-sized feet. Fuzz is a great beginner or easy pattern. It works up fast and has very little shaping. He uses less than half a skein of Red Heart Super Saver, and he looks wonderful in any color. Fuzz is a great little companion or gift for any dog-lover."

I remember Ziggy! He was one of our favorites, too, and somewhere around here I still have the Christmas special on VHS tape. Im wondering if theres any way to use bean bag beads instead of conventional stuffing for Fuzz. I remember a similar toy when Ziggy was popular, and I know my grown kids would get a kick out of this.

I bet you could use pellets! There are poly-pellets that you can get at a craft store that are washable. I would recommend those over beans/rice because they won't get nasty over time.
