Welcome some wildlife into your garden today! The Bee and the Butterfly will help your garden blossom while the Frog and Duckling like to splash about in the pond keeping your Duckweed and slug problem under control. As for the Squirrel, she loves stealing peanuts meant for the birds and then scampering away up the nearest tree - a bit cheekyy, I know, but when you're as cute as that you can get away with all sorts! So get a little bio-diversity into your life with this easy to follow pattern and let's all enjoy the garden together! At only just over 2 1/2" (6cm) tall (excluding ears) every garden should have plenty of space to accomodate these mini-animals (or 'Minimals' for short!)

I love experimenting with textiles of all kinds. I am currently totally loopy for amigurumi. I hope you like my collection of patterns. I am working on adding more as often as I can. I have more wool in my stash than I could ever possibly use, but I still I intend to buy more! (Lots more!!)
