Sewing and textiles with Ann
And so to the next in the series of felt animals associated with holidays! A series that I never knew I was going to write!
And if it’s associated with my next holiday, it probably isn’t a llama at all, but either a guanaco, or a vicuna (sorry, my keyboard doesn’t have Spanish punctuation, I know that there should be some), as they seem to be the family members that dwell further south in south America.
The intention is to hang them on rucksacks. It’s a silly little pattern really that was free from Sew magazine. In fact, I pretty much stopped buying Sew magazine because of ‘the silly little patterns’, but I will humbly admit that I have made a few of them… the most recent being the adaptation of an elephant to be a rhino, as you do!
And just as I made the first one, I spotted Laughing Llama sauvignon blanc in the supermarket, from my favourite regional source of wine, Chile.
What I am really pleased about with regard to making these animals, is that I had all of the supplies in the house already, and never knew that either…
In fact, I probably have enough supplies to make a whole farmyard of them! Or to attach to many bottles of wine…. The next thing I knew, there were two of them.
What’s also nice, is that this is totally hand sewing, which makes a pleasant change.
