As you can see, Penelope likes to be well dressed. If it's raining when she wakes up, she does indoor crafts like stringing beads so her clothes and paws will not get muddy. Although sometimes she goes swimming in the pond. Penelope herself is made of ivory organic cotton fleece. She measures 15" if you count her ears. She is stuffed with washable polyfill. Her eyes and nose are hand-embroidered with cotton floss.
