    The little lion king

    I’ve got some good news and some bad news? Which would you prefer first? Let’s go with the good: I’ve got a new pattern for you! Whoop! And now for the bad… Tree and I are gearing up to go off travelling for a bit so unfortunately there may be a bit of a dip in my posts. By ‘a bit’ I mean 2 months or so… Eek. I know. I’m so sad that I won’t be updating the little pomegranate as regularly(ish-who are we kidding?) as I do now. But I may upload random photos here and there of our travels in Tanzania & Zanzibar just so you guys get a little notification to remind you I still exist! Bad news aside, let’s get back to today’s pattern.  A little while back I posted my pattern for a bunny blanket buddy (http://thelittlepomegranate.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/the-little-bunny-blanket-buddy [or click on the pingback at the bottom of the post] EDIT: click for inspiration for a bear blanket buddy). With news of another baby being due in the family I decided to make another blanket buddy but this time thought I’d go for a different animal. Seeing as they’re from South Africa- what could be more appropriate…

    The little Mario fan

    I’m back! And I’m happy to say I’ve got a few things to share with you. I’m gonna start with one of my fave makes; Mario power ups. With my lil sister-in-laws birthday coming up it was the perfect excuse to make these super cute Mario characters. I should tell you now, we’re big Mario fans (some more than others… quote Tree “Are Mario and Luigi brothers?”- April 2012), so don’t be surprised if these become a regular fixture to my blog! With the whole Mario world to choose from, I decided to make a mushroom, bomb and invincibility star (choices mainly based on what yarn I had around!) They’re pretty teeny tiny, about 5-7cm because I wanted them to be able to fit into a small set of shelves my SiL has.
