So what do you make your young nephew for christmas when he is under the age of 1?
That was the dilemma we had this year so I took to looking through my Pinterest boards, scouring through patterns I had saved and finally I found a pattern in the new Cath Kidston Sewing Book.
The pattern for the crocodile toy jumped out at me, seemed the perfect gift for a little boy. A few tweaks to the instructions and substituting bead filling for soft toy fluff to make it more suitable for a baby.
Here's the finished crocodile in all his glory.
A large amount of ricrac, a few fiddly bits of sewing, a long time stuffing fluff in and the crocodile was finished.
Love the lazy eye look and the big cheeky grin made by the whit ricrac but I can't understand why the pattern only gave the croc 2 legs...strange.
