There aren’t any words for poor little Friedrick’s profound sadness or deep feelings of rampant… angst. Wherever he goes something always seems to rain on his parade!
Rainycloud from Mochimochiland. I honestly didn’t think I would get this guy done in time for the contest… however, I(‘m pretty sure I) did. I even felted him! (Although he looks a little, well, I’ll use the word lumpy but you can guess what I’m thinking the cloud kind of looks like o_O) This was also my first time using safety eyes, so I learned something from this experience too. I’m loving this little guy.
Another wonderful figure taken from my head and made a reality by:
Fun fact: knit while watching Sweeney Todd (so it’s nice and angstified) and Firefly (which is a whole different angry story).

When you’re a little one, sometimes the simplest things to everyone else are a pretty big task in your book. Speaking of books… as much as I love them, they don’t really help in the matter. I think it was when I was fifteen that I finally started to think that a witch wasn’t going to shove me in the oven anymore.
Even things like bathing make the most hearty and steadfast get a little weak in their knees.
Tubby, while cute and ‘bubbly’ is also a big intimidator to this little guy. However, it’s always a big comfort for me to take something that you might not enjoy and relate it back to a fun thing… like a day at the pool!
Tubby by Anna Hrachovec at Mochimochiland. These pictures are for the contest. My friend Crystal made this figure for me from a very specific picture I had in my head. You should check out her shop! Say you like to collect a specific thing, like, oh I don’t know, raccoons… (*cough*) and you think, man, I really want some raccoon stitch markers- well she will make you some. They will also be super adorable. If you tell her that you saw her shop ad here, she’ll probably even cut you a deal, since you’re a friend of a friend.
Although sometimes it gets hot in the sun, so you’ve got to get some shade.
Project Spectrum is a pretty cool idea… but I feel like there should be a Project Googly, where participants try to make as many things with googly eyes as possible.
I got the pattern here.
