Meet Master Chu (a revised, baby friendly version of the original)…
The new Master Chu is my newest custom order for a recently arrived baby boy. I have been very excited about revisiting this design as the original version was made in 2010 and I have certainly learned some new techniques and honed in on my crochet stitches since then.
He stands roughly 25cm tall and 10cm wide around his belly. He might look rotund but you want him on your side because the esteemed Master Chu is a martial arts black belt! He loves a good adventure too and that's why he has his own satchel ready to go at anytime.
Made from 100% machine washable merino (head, ears, hooves, feet and tail) and 100% cotton (body, arms, legs and satchel), he is very huggable and squishable. His shiny black belt is 100% acrylic yarn and using 100% wool felt instead of plastic safety eyes makes him very baby friendly.
His satchel has its own closure and will house all the essential items for any piggy adventures like treasure map? a compass?… well… you know… the possibilities are endless!
Here are some progress pics…
