Due to the rushed nature of my last three Whimsykins, I didn’t have time to come up with stories or even take very good pictures of them before I had to wrap them up as Christmas presents. I apologize for that. I hope you enjoy them anyway.
First up, I present Skeeter the Cyclops, my blitzkrieg Christmas Eve project for my only nephew Hayden on Christmas Day. I put him entirely together within about two and a half hours. I was proud of myself for that.
If you recall, Hayden received my very first Whimsykin, Cheeky the Monkey, as a birthday present in October – as in “welcome to the world” birthday. I wanted to make him something equally cool and brightly colored, as a bonus these feathery socks were also super soft. His eye and mouth were made of felt and hand-embroidered on. Of course, he also has a heart on his butt. With the leftover fabric I had, I made him a little stocking cap.
He was a hit with Mom and Dad – I’m sure the little guy will latch on to him soon too. And probably drool on him a lot.
