The Chinese New Year started yesterday and 2022 is the year of the tiger, as you can see all over snazzie ;)) We wanted to make a nice tiger craft for this party, but we thought that a tiger cuddly toy is also a nice gift for a Valentine. With a small adjustment in the colors you can make two at once!
