* treeling

Posted on December 9th, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Toys (cat and kid).

Becket got me the Softies book for my birthday, so it seemed only fair to make her daughter a toy from it for Christmas. I couldn’t decide between the funny whale and the treeling, so I had Mark break the tie. The pattern is by the great littleoddforest, and you can also get it for free from the Craft podcast. I think it turned out great, and it was fun to make. Pulling all the leaf topthreads through to the back and tying them in knots took a while, but I was watching my early present from Mark, the Twin Peaks Gold Box, anyway and needed something to justify watching one… more… episode.

    That looks so good! I’ve had that book for awhile waiting to dive in. The whale is too cool.
