This is a unique idea, so I wanted to give it a try. It's a great pattern and the liner I crocheted turned out to be softer than I expected, but it was just too thick to be comfortable for me. If you try out this pattern, I recommend using a soft, but very thin yarn. Quality pattern, though.

Love love love!! I was a little intimidated because it was a more advanced pattern even though I started about a month ago so I made it a bit easier on myself by not switching out the colors and just making the separate colors difference pieces then stitching after. Followed the pattern for the face and body and it’s so cute 🥺
