Many years ago I had a very energetic toddler called Rosie. On shopping trips she would wriggle, twist and fidget and I was always looking for new ways to entertain her – then … I found a little coat with pockets on the sleeves and little animals attached to the pockets. She loved them and would spend ages engrossed in their adventures as I pushed her around the local supermarket.
Now I must admit that making a whole coat is a bit beyond my skills so, inspired by that long-ago coat, I’ve created a woolly scarf design which I hope will appeal to a whole new generation of children.
The pocket features a cute little hedgehog off on his way to visit his friend who lives in the red spotty toadstool. And his friend is attached to the base of the pocket with ribbon so he can’t fall out and get lost along the way. He tucks in very cosily and there’s room for one or two other treasures too!
I haven’t listed the pattern yet, trying to take some good photos – it’s so grey and gloomy here today. But I was anxious to share it with blog readers and also to offer it to you at the special price of $2.00 for the next month (normally it will be $3.50). The button for this special price is below – it’s an instant download of a pdf file.
And now for the giveaway ….
If you’d like the chance to win the hedgehog scarf shown in these photos, just in time for a lovely Christmas gift, then please leave a comment below, and just for a bit of fun, tell me what’s your favourite animal and why…
The closing date for this giveaway is midnight GMT Wednesday 17 November, and yes I will post overseas.
