Chan Chu Chinese Money Frog

 CHAN CHU Chinese  money frog is believed to drive away evil, protect wealth, and increase one's  income. Frog offers a little gold coin in his mouth!

Traditionally the frog has red eyes, and three legs, however I wanted a more traditional looking  frog (toad).

Cute way to  enjoy your new found wealth increase, and happy life!

Pattern can be purchased at my Etsy pattern shop:
You can make a boy frog with a little Bow tie, or A girl Frog with a pink bow on her head, or just leave em' geussing with our plain look.
