How cute is this guy? Meet Sid, this little fella will bring a touch of friendly fun to any nursery. I have a real soft spot for Koalas, I just adore those big innocent friendly eyes, the little furry legs…. I have just two toys from my childhood, the first is my teddy, the second my koala.
Sid is worked mostly in the round, so there is very little sewing up. With a few adjustments he can easily be adapted to make a toy, just remove the hanging loop and buttons and be careful with the eyes when giving to a very small child.
Why not make another one in pink and so cute couple can keep watch on the nursery (and the neighbours).
You can find the pattern for Sid, inside issue 95 of Let’s Knit Magazine.
