Buddy Bee Swap

I participated in another swap put on by the Freshstitches group over on Ravelry.  Here is what I made for my partner, Michaela (ToastyOat on Ravelry):

She had this amigurumi listed as a favorite so I had to make it for her in her favorite color orange.  I found the instructions to covert the gnome into a wizard from this blog posting from a fellow Raveler.
I also made her a pillowcase:

When I saw this fabric in my stash, it screamed her name so I made it for her.  I also added a placemat for her dalmation Zelda, 2 appliqued hand towels and a skein of Cascade Soft Spun yarn in orange.  She totally loved everything!  It was a pleasure being your buddy bee Michaela!
Yarn: Plymouth Encore Solid Worsted in #1382 - Yellow, #0208 - White, #0217 - Black, #1383 - Orange and #1202 -  Beige
Hook: US G


  1. I love your wizard and the placement of that second moon. ;)

  2. All your handmade items were so wonderful and perfect :)

  3. I put the pillowcase on my pillow last night, its totally hilarious because i had on a shirt with those same flowers on the lettering for a 5k i did last year. I was putting on the pillowcase and rowan looks over at me and goes..uhm you match your pillow! You figured me out to a T!
