Here's one of my first completed projects in Taiwan - a cute little softie Owl. But he's not a making of my own creation - recently when I visited a museum I bought a postcard, which you could make a softie out of.
It's pretty cool - they company that makes these little guys has all kinds of cool kits on their website.
Just for fun - here's a photo of my little owl hanging out with all the other softies at our apartment. Rich made all the robots (actually there is only one softie robot - the rest are Russian doll robots).
Also, if you want to see just how I made my little owl there are detailed instructions here from the monkey design website.
