Introducing....


SQUAREY!!!!

He's done. And he was a great deal of fun to make. And Schecky is thrilled. Although, in true seven-year-old fashion, he now wants me to make an army of friends for Squarey.

Even though I got a little bit cranky waiting for the down/feather-blend pillow to arrive in the mail, I am glad that I didn't just buy one of those rock-hard pillow inserts from Michael's or Hancock Fabrics. Squarey is actually quite soft and snuggly, yet firm enough to keep a nice shape. I did worry that perhaps he might be a tad droopy....

This picture does not quite do him justice, as my photography skills are weak at best, and when it comes to indoor pictures, largely non-existent! I do love my house, but it doesn't get much light on a good day, and on a blustery February day it is pretty much a BatCave!

Thank you again to Jess Hutch, who makes not only makes wonderful creations, but is quite skilled at pattern writing as well - these are two skills that do not always go hand in hand...

Whereas the booklet that I got Squarey's pattern from can be a bit difficult to obtain, Jess has some great patterns online for an adorable bunny (just in time for Easter) and Kate, the kitty in britches. Don't you just want to eat these up????
