I used up some unknown worsted weight yarn found in a storage bin.
Q&A with Laza
These are precious!!! Any tips on how to recreate this beachy look?
Who doesn't love a hippo in a bikini, right? there was a good deal of trial and error to get the parts to look and fit right. it was easiest to work them up flat using a circular. I could slide the work to the middle of the needle and 'try it on' to see if I was on track for size. once the pieces fit, i just sewed them in place...front and back with matching yarn and a couple of stitches.
What a great idea! I'll try that for my next toy and share with you once it's done. Thanks for the inspiration!
