What’s better than a coupla’ new friends in your life? Especially when they are sweet, fun loving and always there for you. :) Meet my new critter friends, Squeak and Spike! The pdf pattern for making your very own is now ready in my etsy shop.
There’s a Mama size and a Baby size. The pattern has complete directions for creating both critters, the mouse and the hedgie. I used felted wool sweaters to create these, but any cuddly fabric would work, such as fleece, velour, sherpa, etc.
How cute would these be for Valentine gifts? Make them in bright colors, pink and red, or natural grays and browns with little pink ears.
Aww, they’re holding tails! Theirs are made with felted i-cord but there are so many options: a braid of yarn, a thick crocheted chain, upholstery cording or a strip of thick sweater felt. Their eyes are beads and their noses are felt balls.
Hello, Hedgies! Spike and his mama ought to be on cute overload. My son is completely in love with them and has already adopted them into his menagerie of stuffed animals.
And surprise…each critter has a little felt heart on their tums, that’s just how loving they are. *mwah*!
Can you tell we are having a major cute-fest over here? Reminds me of my days designing for the kids apparel industry. I loved when our samples came in from the sample room. Little baby garments all hanging together on a rack. We’d pick them up and dance them around to our own squeals of delight. Yeah, it could be a little nauseating, but when you make baby clothes, it’s all about the cute.
If you’re all about cute, I hope you’ll check out the new pattern. And remember, just one month until Valentines Day! :)
