Ay & Zhe : On A Mission to Conquer the Earth

Meet Ay and Zhe ... they have come to conquer the Earth through simplicity and cuteness!




UPDATE:  You can now download this pattern in PDF format (and add it to your library) on Ravelry.com for a small fee. Click here: CP46 - Ay and Zhe


Don't let the big, soulful eyes of this troublesome twosome fool you - they love to mischief make whenever possible.  They've been known to hide candy, car keys and anything else that is small enough for them to slime their way on top of.  But they promise to behave themselves, if only long enough to celebrate their terrestrial cousins' anniversary.



It was in 1947, after the Roswell Daily Record, announced the "capture" of a "flying saucer" on July 8 - well, that was one of their cousins - Roul... ever since that infamous date, humankind has had a growing curiosity with Extra Terrestrials.   From ET (made famous by Steven Spielberg in the 80's) to movies like MIB (okay, now I have the theme song stuck in my head!)... 
We come in all shapes and sizes - but we all want one thing... "to speak to your leader".. in this case, Mom.. or Dad - "Make Us!"
