The Seahorse Family Stuffies Pattern Is Available

** update: This pattern is now available as a free download! **

Yay!  I can't believe how fast I finished up the pattern and all the web changes I needed to make.  The PDF includes the pattern pieces and instructions for both an adult and a baby seahorse.  They are super cute, if I say so myself.

You can check out the seahorses made by my awesome testers in the Futuregirl Seahorse Stuffies Flickr group.  Thank you so much Korallin, Diane, and Sara!

I should have mentioned in my last post that Andrew is the genius behind the seahorse photos.  He's the one that knows how to light things, knows how to position things, and knows how his camera works ... you know, everything.  I've learned a ton from him since I started this blog.  We always have so much fun setting up the elaborate photo shoots together.  He's the best and I'm so lucky he's mine!

Last night after I posted, I tied my copy of Crochet Me closed.  I'm totally serious.  I didn't just do it for the blog.  I haven't even opened it once - not once.  I think if I hadn't tied it closed, I would have been crocheting today instead of finishing up the pattern.  Now I'm so excited to get started on swatching!

Seriously, Sasha looks as if he came into this world as a felt seahorse, not as felt cut and stitched together to let him look as one. Your work is so neat!
And damn cute.

The care and attention you put into your photos shines through! They are professional enough for a book - you should think about writing one!!

There's nothing as sweet as the anticipation of sitting down to look through a new craft book. OK, there are lots of things as sweet as that.

still-very exciting!

Just finished Sasha in white with pink beads and pink embroidery...SOOOOO CUTE!!! And finished in about 3 hours. I have a girlfriend having a baby and her color is peach with a nautical theme..so I will do peach and coral and make a mobile with Sasha and baby. Thanks for the free download. Your pattern is so great with wonderful detail and looks fabulous!!!
