POSABLE LITTLE SNAKE


This is a pattern was a request from my wife.  She found a picture of one similar online and asked me if I could make one for her.  One turned into five, each in a different color.  I am also regretting making even one for her because I am constantly finding one of them wrapped around my stuff.
