Ok, the orange one is Carrots, the purple one is Eggplant. Of course my son may change their names once he gets them, but until sunday, they are stuck.
Both have tails of dyed alpaca wool, and their ears are lined with pink felt.
Carrot is made of an orange nylon, with a bit of shine to it, left over from one of my daughters costumes, and has blue eyes.
Eggplant has green eyes and is made from vinyl left over from making a doll's raincoat.
These are made with my son in mind, he will be getting them sunday, they are unusual textures, in an attempt to keep him busy in places he needs to sit and be quiet such as resturants.
