Hippos, Aliens and Nails!
This cute little hippo is a toy I just finished this morning and he is newly listed in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested! I can also make him in other colors as a custom order...but beware it would be after the holidays when things are back to normal around here. :) Feel free to send an email for info!
I love this thing. The pattern is from a new book I bought from Amazon called "Crocheted Softies". I did modify just the slightest bit to suit my needs, but not enough to say it's my pattern or anything...still very much the author's. And he already has an established home (currently under the tree, but I'm sure he'll be in a pile in someone's bedroom soon after the holidays).
When I get extra time, I would really love to branch off of the basic idea on him and make more aliens all different looks!
Very simple and great for this week!
I will have much more to share once the holidays are over...right now it's hard not to, but I don't want to spoil any surprises for anyone who might peek here!! :D Have a great weekend, all!
