Presents for Strudel

 I made a little man for Strudel, who turned one recently.  Like Strudel, he needs some coaxing in order to walk.  I realised while I was making him that he is almost entirely made up of scraps of fabric that I kept from my old work places.  (Years spent in the fashion industry have their advantages.)  The knitted front panel is my work.  If you have been reading this blog for a while you might recognise it.


He was inspired by a Czech book cover which I pinched from Fine Little Day and stuck in my scrapbook, above.  Please excuse the dismal i-phone shot.
Strudel loves faces, so I made her a little digitally printed cushion too.  Happy Birthday, Noodle!

Thank you EssieE, she is lucky to have you for a mum! I'm so glad that Noodle likes the face. :)

Thanks to you both.

What a lucky little Strudel! He is gorgeous Sandra.

Thanks Saskia. I am so glad that he has had such a good response, he was a bit paranoid about his odd proportions at first. His confidence in his highly individual look is growing. A lesson for all of us.
