It’s not often that I’m honoured to get a request, but this time I am.
My fellow intern and general partner in crime from nine to five wanted an extra special birthday gift for his girlfriend. He sent me a photo of her beloved childhood toy, you know, the one you take with you everywhere and end up battered and well loved, and asked me to crochet a shiny, new replica. I wrote this pattern based off the picture he sent me, and wanted to share it with the world.
