My friend at work Jen, asked a few weeks ago if I would crochet her daughter a Bat. As a fellow Bat lover, of course I obliged!! Plus I love Jen and all the sillyness she tells me about her daughter who I've never met but I'm sure we'd get along great if we did. She's 8 and wants to be an FBI agent and a Wolf part time when she grows up...enough said!
I've looked around online for crochet bat patterns before but never really found anything that I liked too much. BUT then I found this adorable Fruit Bat!!
I finished him last night and am soo happy with how he turned out! It takes a little finageling his feet to get him to stand but he will! Jen said that Cat will probably just hang him up somewhere so that made me feel better. I'm still not too good at getting these little dolls to sit and stand the way they should but I'm getting there =)
The best part is there are pipe cleaners in the wings so they can fold closed!!
Without further adieu...here is Batley!
Sorry for so many pictures but I'm really proud of this guy!!
