Another baby arrived into the world recently. Well, babies arrive into the world all the time, probably every minute of every day. But this particular baby arrived as a bundle of joy for my cousin. Unfortunately, they live up North (being a true Londoner- ‘north’ is anything outside the m25) and with Ramadan going on, and work starting soon, I won’t be able to say my hellos for a little while- so thought I’d pop something in the post.
Now this little blanket buddy gave me a hard time. Specifically, one body part: the nose. Ahhh. The nose! Redone 3 times, it even changed colour. I knew straight away she didn’t look right- for some reason she just looked mousey. But I persevered thinking “maybe when the ears go on she’ll look like a bear”. But alas, the unstitcher became my friend again and I unpicked her nose (ha! Weird pun.) and tried again. I even tried variations. Circular nose. Wide nose. Small nose. Ribbon nose. But they just looked non-bearish (or weirdly, more koala-ish). Gah.
How do you think it turned out in the end? My brother-in-law thinks it looks more like a lion. I haven’t posted up the pattern variation from the little bunny blanket buddy. Do you fancy it? Or is it self-explanatory? Let me know what you think.
