This toy was made following an Alan Dart pattern which I spotted on ebay. I have only tried making one toy by Alan Dart before and found it very confusing and didn't finish it as it was all going wrong. Yet again this pattern was very difficult and it took a lot of extra stitches to get his body looking symmetrical and egg shaped! I made his feet and hands differently to the pattern as I wanted to get him finished and was fed up of the fiddly bits. I embroidered a nose onto him after this photo was taken.
He will be delivered to my niece next weekend.
