Saturday Showcase: A is for Alligator
First in my quest to make something for every letter in the alphabet is this guy.
This original version has a binder clip in his mouth so that when you squeeze his head, his mouth opens. It was also worked with his head made first, starting at the top of his mouth. The back and stomach were made next, with the tail worked off them and the head sewn on, but I’ve since reworked the pattern so that the head is worked off the body, with nothing to sew on. This pattern is both cute and quick to make – my favorite combination.
