plushy alpaca

December 9, 2013

My lovely blogger friend Sam sent me a surprise package last week. We met last summer and had an amazing time exploring Hamburg and Berlin together. Most of my local friends aren’t particularly crafty so sadly I don’t get to go to fabric markets, flea markets and cute fabric stores with friends often. Another bonus of meeting fellow bloggers?
They make the best gifts!
Sam knows I love knitting and fibre rich animals and pretty much just everything fluffy and cute. She designed and made an alpaca for me!! She shared how she got the idea and made him here. She also included many cute pictures of him so go over to her blog for even more cuteness. Not to mention all the crafty adventures she shares on her blog – it’s definiteily worth a visit!!

I can’t get over how cute he is! I love all the little details – the cute forehead, the ears, the eyebrows, the tail and of course his socks!!! He even stands up on his own. When he sits on his belly he looks like a cria 🙂


She  also included a really handmade cute camera necklace for me (she knows me so well!!) as well as a dressform necklace for my mom. And fabric turners that make my life so much easier. I feel so spoiled and blessed – crafty friends are the best, right?
