Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, May 13 (and Father’s Day is just around the corner too!). With that in mind, I wanted to design a little something to reflect the specialness of the day and I think this little Otter family fits the bill so sweetly! Have you ever seen pictures of a mother sea otter embracing her fuzzy little otter pup as they float along? It’s one of the sweetest displays of parent-baby affection in the animal kingdom. And to add to that, otters often hold their paws together while they nap to prevent them from drifting apart from each other, making them perhaps the most painfully adorable creatures around.
I wanted my Otters to be able to hold paws as well (and to hug the baby otter!) so I inserted magnets into their paws and I love the result!
