As many of you know, I have made dozens of hippos. They are a huge hit and my best seller in the shop. (Giraffes and penguins are second and third, I think.)
Just last night, I finished an order for a red hippo — my first boldly colored hippo ordered in a long time. I was really excited for this one, because I think the hippos can look good in any color, but don’t get an opportunity to stray outside of standard colors very often. The red makes me think of that game Hungry Hungry Hippos from the 80s — anyone remember that one?
In the end, he turned out so handsomely! Check out this good-looking fella:
I have my eye on other kinds of dolls to try out but in the meantime, I’ll keep going on the hippo train!
Do you make crochet or knit animals? Do you have any suggestions for others I could try out? Leave a comment below!
