Just "Sun"

This is Sunny Sunshine. 
 
Or at least that was her name until I gave her to Leia, who said "Grandma, her name is just Sun!"
  
So, please meet Sun Crocodile,
 
cover model for "Crochet One-Skein Wonders" and the main reason I bought the book that has since become a favorite.
 
This was an easy project, with well written instructions - I love how the designer used different stitches to shape the body parts, especially the legs, which look like little booties before they're sewn on. The hardest part of the whole thing was sewing the cute little ridges down Sun's back.
 
Green would have been a more traditional croc color, but yellow is Leia's current favorite (not princess pink or purple any longer!) so yellow it had to be. I think Sunny Sunshine Sun was a hit. And the best part?
 
Crocodile butt!
