Tracey, the manager of our Starbucks, asked us if we could make another one to replace Buck because she so missed him.
I decided that Buck had a sister called “Bucky”
Here’s her creation…
There’s an unsewn arm and two paws (which don’t show up well in the photo) on the left and that big brown blob is
bear guts I mean stuffing.
The paws are the most fiddlesome part to make – 2 rounds of double crochet with a single thread of Rowan Kidsilk Night…
Arms and paws emerged….then a pretty face….
but once she got her girly bow in her hair she went all bashful in front of the camera!
“Don’t look! I’m naked! Go make me some clothes!”
Bucky’s brother wore the colourful Christmas uniform. Staff are currently wearing the plain Black uniform – not very exciting for a girly-girl like Bucky so I decided she could have a red apron.
The clothes are crocheted – T-shirt is Rowanspun 4 ply, the trousers are Cygnet 4 ply and the apron is Rowan 4ply soft (all from stash oddments – I’m not quite mad enough to go buy yarn for this!! 😉
Will these do Bucky???
“Make me a coffee and I’ll try them on…..”
“Hmmm…Not bad! Take a photo! Take a photo”
I hope you like her Readers!!
