Don't you just love animals?
My Plastic Canvas Kissies hub got too large so I decided to split it out. In addition to the original hub (General and Holiday Kissies), I split it out into People Kissies and this hub with Animal Kissies.
There are so many animal kissies out there. I love them all. I have made penguins and other wonderful animals from the books I have purchased.
This cat is one of the kissies that I created from the book "Plastic Canvas Squeezums" (see below).

Missing Animal Kissies
The Kissin' Mouse is no longer available online. The website was in the Way Back Machine, as Geocities quit having free websites, and apparently Way Back Machine took them off. I fear the Kissin' Lion and Kissin' Frog will disappear, too.
Missing Animal Kissies Update
UPDATE 3/23/13: I went and check and these wonderful patterns are still not up at the Kansas City Public Library website. I will check back periodically to see if she has uploaded them.
I have contacted the woman who created the Kissin' Lion, Kissin' Mouse, and Kissin' Frog, Brenda Redmond. She said she will try to find the tutorials for these patterns. Not sure whether she will put them back up or if she will allow me to do it. Ms. Brenda Redmond, Youth Service Supervisor, Argentine Library Branch has worked for the Kansas City, Kansas Public Library for 25 years. She says the library did not put them up on the new site but it was not her fault as she wasn't asked.
Thank you, Brenda for the quick reply. Hope to see your cuties soon.
Frog 1 Plastic Canvas Kissie
As I was searching around, I found this pattern for a frog kissie. He is rather plain but cute. I love his buggie eyes.
The very first pattern that I saw of a frog kissie was like this one but instead of the felt and eyes glued to the felt, the pattern called for wiggly eyes which were glued to the top square. He was cute, too.

Frog 2 Plastic Canvas Kissie
This cute little kissin' frog has pompoms and wiggly eyes. I love the way the eyes look on this frog better. But, they are both cute.
The frog in this picture looks a little like he is trying to think of something. Maybe he is trying to think of what hub he wants to write next.
This picture came from Kansas Public Library and is therefore public domain.
I Recommend These Books - They have some wonderful Kissie Patterns in them.
Make sure to check that they are actually Kissie books as this module will pick up anything with "plastic canvas kiss" in it.
The Kissin' Lion in Plastic Canvas
This is such a cute Kissin' Lion. I love his luscious mane, puffy pompom cheeks, curly tail with a bow and feet.
The link only has the word pattern. The picture is on this page from before it got deleted by the Wayback Machine. I think the feet might be like the frog kissie feet. Of course, you will probably have to modify them by rounding out the feet.

I just found a new Kissie for you to make. This on is a Kissing Bird. This little kissing bird is cute with his little feather sticking out the top. He can be made in many colors and his beak can be added in a different color also.
