My husband didn’t have much under the Christmas tree this year as he tends to buy the things he wants when he wants them instead of saving any for gift ideas. So I got a wild hair to make him a little baby Yoda for his gaming desk as a winter surprise.
I am using the free Baby Yoda pattern by Kim Konen. (Rav link) I managed to knock out the body and head in one sitting. My fabric is a little loose and I can see the polyfil inside. I probably should have swatched and then gone down a needle size. But I’m plowing ahead…its a toy and for a grown adult. It’s good enough, lol
I am using Malabrigo Rios green scraps from my Weekender Sweater. I still need to dig in my stash to find suitable Yoda sweater yarn. It’s been tricky to work on this because I want it to be a surprise so I have to work on this after the kids go to bed but before my husband comes to bed.
I had to chuckle. My husband is the same way! I have to think waaaay outside the box for his gifts. I have a moratorium on shopping. It begins November 1st. Anything that he purchases during the ban gets confiscated, wrapped and put under the tree! 🙂
That’s not a bad rule!
It works too. My husband purchased a Bluetooth speaker during a black Friday event. I intercepted the parcel, wrapped it and he completely forgot about it. You can use your working from home to your advantage. You got the power, girl! teehee…
Oh so cute, made me smile that you have to work on it when your fam can’t see it, not easy ❤️
