Wobbes

A little while ago (I can't believe it! It's been TWO YEARS!) I showed this kit. And now I finally made it. This little guy's name is Wobbes Wiebelteen and he is a pattern made by Tintangel. He is available as a kit through Etsy and in shops in Holland.
He was a joy to make; the toes were a bit fiddly but after that the rest is easy peasy. Lovely materials to work with (all natural 100% wool) and I love the fall colours of the leaves, and the way the needlefelted wool looks like moss.


Een tijdje geleden (ongelofelijk, al TWEE JAAR!) liet ik dit pakket zien. En nu heb ik 'm eindelijk gemaakt. Hij heet Wobbes Wiebelteen  en hij is een patroon van Atelier Tintangel. Hij is te koop via Etsy en in verschillende winkels.
Hij was een feestje om te maken; de tenen waren een beetje priegelig maar daarna was de rest een eitje. Prachtige materialen om mee te werken (allemaal 100% natuurlijke wol) en ik vind de herfstkleuren prachtig, en ook hoe de naaldgevilte wol op mos lijkt.

He reminds me of Hagrid a little... weird?

Hij doet me een beetje aan Hagrid denken... vreemd?

    I think he might like to have a girlfriend and give her a wee-sized pond scum bracelet. ; ) He's darling!
