birthday present



little doggie balou celebrated his first birthday last sunday and the thursday before i went to visit my friend jacqueline and balou and i brought along a birthday present. a small size ‘football’ made ​​of 8 hexagons, 7 black and 1 orange. this time it was not filled with yarn ends, but with longer strands of acrylic yarn.

balou still has his crocheted doggie toy. for his (human) mother and sisters i had made ​​cuddle cushions (same pattern) and jacqueline told that balou at times when he thinks no one sees it, grabs hers to put it with his own stuff.

he is a beautiful dog with a very friendly character. well below are some pictures, i hope you enjoy looking at them.

have a lovely weekend and until next time!

ps. second picture: sewing up the gaps helped for a while, by now the ball ended up in the trash can. this toy was not suitable for a puppy but balou was – for a short time – very happy with it. the next time i think i will make a more compact ball without gaps in it 🙂
