Cecil was a quick present whipped up for a one year old’s birthday! I didn’t use a pattern, just kind of winged it. Inspiration struck me when I saw Henry playing with his snake and my only thought was ‘how hard can it be to cut out a snake shape?!’ Well – turns out it’s really quite hard when you have no drawing skills.
Ummm yes George, of course snakes have square heads!! Anyway, forget about his square face for a minute… Let’s talk about his minky soft belly and those shimmery eyes? Cecil is the ultimate toy, he pulls off incredibly snuggly and scary at the same time! Here he is slithering through the grass before his trip to North Devon.
Soooo cute. I had an absolute blast making him and I’m pretty happy with the way he turned out. Simple and fun, I want to make lots and lots of snakes… Do you want to make one too? Of course you do! Then watch this space for a Cecil snake how-to.
