Please let me know if you find any errors. I have not had this tested.
The mushroom is hollow. There is a lid that buttons shut.
Enjoy!

Oh, my gosh - now THAT is adorable. I have three little kittens who would love to find hidden toys inside, especially the mouse :-) I really appreciate your sharing the pattern, this will be a lot of fun to make.

Working on one right now (on row 7 of stem, just started) and I am making it out of cotton instead of WW to see how it comes out. I am a big cotton fan and LOVE making kids things out of it since it is the least allergy inducing of all yarn. If you like I can post a pic when I am done. :)
