Cardcaptors Kerochan!

Cardcaptors is such a cute show. I used to watch it all the time when it was on TV. I just love her battle costumes and Kerochan is so cute!
I found a pattern to make Kerochan here-
Thank you very much ournew on Craftster for posting it!
I used her pattern for the head and wings and then made up the rest of the body myself.
He was made for my daughter who is a huge Cardcaptors fan! Although I really like it too so might have to make another one then my moogle will have a friend. He he.
Unfortunately I was a little off on stitching the mouth but my daughter is still very happy!
This picture was where I got the idea to make his body bigger and since I basically copied her idea wanted to give credit to her. If you click on the picture it will take you to the page that I found it on.
I couldn't find a pattern or anything for how she did the body and so this is what I came up with. I'm posting it here in case anyone else would like to copy this idea too.
