I am typically over on the knitting pages, however, I am looking for a pattern for a crocheted mallard that “poops” jellie beans. My great aunt used to make them for Easter - unfortunately the pattern was lost in a house fire and she doesn’t remember where she got it from. He was really cute and I so want to make some !!
(sorry I’m not much help, but that is too funny!!)
ETA-Oh shoot, I didn’t meant to laugh about the house fire-I’m sorry!!
I found this at www.hipforums.com
this is the cutest/kitchiest thing… you fill it up with little candies and squeeze it to make it poop
