I am so excited to give this little bat to my friend who owns a local coffee shop in town. Being new to the neighbourhood and knowing I’m only here for a few months, she has made me feel right at home and has always been so generous and kind. Why am I making her a bat, you ask? I noticed that she wears a lot of “Batman” shirts and has a fondness for bats. (I get it, I love bats too!)
Once again, I purchased this pattern from Son’s Popkes because I love all of her patterns. I feel this pattern was one of her best ones to date! It had so many great details including how to place the eyes correctly (sometimes a challenge for me) and how to embroider the lines on the wings.
It turned out that I needed a little extra guidance with the embroidery part so I found a great video tutorial here.
I used Vanna’s Choice yarn in “Taupe” and “Charcoal Grey.” I used a 3.5mm hook, polyester stuffing, and 6mm safety eyes.
Overall, I love how it turned out and I think my friend will love it too!
Stay tuned for some new sewing projects in the works!
