I’d just handed over some recently finished woollies and was sitting at the table laughing with other ladies (and one fella) at my Thursday night charity knitting group when I hear the words come out of my mouth.
“I’ll think about it”
Before then making knitted toys had never entered my mind – I’m more of a winter woolie person – yet I could hear all the others chattering and looking at ideas online so before the end of the evening “I’ll think about it” became more of “I’ll see what I can come up with” lol
So many ‘things’ i thought of had so many pieces – little fiddly pieces to be sew together. I needed something simple. Easy to make without worrying how it would turn out/if I’d make a hash of it. A few hours on the net and a few coffees later
This is what I came up with.
Yes it’s a little Teddy – similar to but not the actual pattern of the one associated with the emergency charity. Trademarked so too many restrictions on the use of that one – besides I liked the look of this one rather than theirs.
It’s strange but I’m happy to go out of my comfort zone if it’s my idea but always feel at a disadvantage when others suggest it. This little fella has proved to me I should have got over that at my age. I shouldn’t have to ‘think about it’ …..I should just get on and do it.!!
And if you look above – there on the left hand side of the photo is the start of another one
I’ll get on with it shortly- just have to give Ted a face first. He needs to be able to smile at the child he is given to doesn’t he😊
