Little Ted...

How do you photograph a newly completed softie, with the help of a fairy-dress-wearing almost 4 year old?

Ted

Do you bribe, direct, plead...

or just give up?

Ted

My first knitted softie is done & dusted. He was actually very simple (& quick) to knit & he is nice & soft & squishy.

He has a rather serious, & lopsided look on his face, possibly he is contemplating whether or not I sewed his body the right way up. I'm still contemplating this question myself...

I'm not sure where this little guy is headed, possibly I need to knit him some buddies & keep them all at the ready as baby gifts.

If you would like to make yourself a serious Ted (which I highly recommend), his details are on Ravelry.

I bribe, plead and then threaten...it always ends in tears.

Beautiful fairy and super cute Ted x

Now that is one cute Ted! I don't believe you though that it could be easy - it looks anything but! I'd like to see you try to get it out of the ballerina's hands jut quietly ;)

Ted is seriously gorgeous. Funny how even when you 'give up' those pics of yours SING!

i know this post was meant to be about your stunning teddy, but i can't stop looking at how much willow has grown up - in particular, her hands don't look like toddler hands anymore. she is a big girl. and i bet she is just a delight. well done on the teddy!

I am still a bit scared of attempting a softie, might have to make this a first if I do get around to it..It's insanely adorable as is the stubborn one. I have the same issues over here and I know it's not fun at all...Bribes are starting to wear off. What will I do....

So sweet. I love the ted & the beautiful fairy dress. It's so refreshing to see a fairy dress that isn't a horrible garish shade of pink. Cute fairy too.
