today i want to share a baby gift i made for a little boy named Gus.
i made a stuffed toy for his big brother more than two years ago, so it made sense that i made a toy for Gus also. i wanted to make a different toy, boy-ish not only in colours but also in design. but it also had to be cute!
after thinking and planning for some time, i bought some cotton yarn in colours i liked and gave this monster pattern a go. i drew some colour schemes (planning is half the fun!) and went for it!
somewhere between christmas and new years eve, i finished the toy.
turns out the baby was born right when i was sewing in the ends! :)
i love this little monster. i like how he's like a little brother for the other one. :)
