This is my Pirate Bear!! Aarrgg Me Matey! lol... I made a graduation bear from Lion's brand pattern for my sister on her completion of University, and my boyfriend commented on how it would be better if it were a pirate bear :P ahaha so0o0o0o0o, I decided to surprise him with a Pirate Bear for Christmas and he LOVED it!! I made all the clothing, hat, weapon, hook and peg leg all my self! The bear it's self was based on the Lion Brand's pattern, but was changed a bit.
I've finished my very first baby security blankets! I made a bunny for a little girl and a monkey for either a boy or girl. (My monkey blanket isn't quite quite finished because I ran out of brown yarn on the scallop edge *irritating* haha)
I found this pattern at Do It Yourself By Ruta. The monkey was improvised by myself but the bunny is her head and her ears, I just lengthened my ears a bit.
These are absolutely adorable and I will be making more!! Such a great gift for a new born or young one!
You can find her pattern on her site here - http://doityourselfbyruta.wordpress.com/2013/06/06/security-blanket-bunny/
