This cuddly winter companion has moving jointed front flippers and cute button eyes. It is so quick to knit using large size needles, then magically transformed into thick soft felt by a ride in your washing machine!
Each piece of the seal pup is stuffed before felting, the stuffing is compressed as the knitting shrinks to give a plump seamless finish.
This little Seal pup has traditional button eyes which twinkle above a cute embroidered nose and mouth. Fully illustrated 7 page pattern guides you through knitting, felting, assembling your Seal Pup and adding the features.
(If you are gifting this bunny to a child please do not use buttons- embroidered eyes look great too, and the front flippers will still be jointed)

What others have made
My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
