Randomly flicking through the different boards of Craftster I came across a list of tutorials/patterns for plushies. When I saw a link for a lil slice of bread I just couldn't resist!
You can find the pattern here:http://www.cherrymix.com/bread.html
So Fred da Bread was born. I didn't name him so, my brother (who, at 19, is older that me and should know better....) decided to make up his life story:
Fred is an up and coming rap star who was born in the ghettos of Dundalk. (Dundalk doesn't have ghettos, nor does my bread plush resemble an MC, but I didn't have the heart to point that out...
Having been cut off from his family at a young age, Fred has spent the past few years writing his own rhymes and attending freestyle rap battles in Boyd's car parks. He enjoys drinking Scholer with his bitches and hanging out on top of the mantlepiece with his bros Nev (an action figure of Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter, yes I'm obsessed with HP
) and the old guy who's part of a bookend.
Fred came with us the other week when we visited the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum (not to be confused with the Ulster American Folk Park, but both are really cool and should not be missed!) and enjoyed himself thoroughly!
He rocked out in the old style houses, taking particular interest in the kitchens (and the baking stuff, perhaps it reminded it of his childhood)
He even got in on the act when we were in the old school house, posing for pictures when we were messing around on the mini blackboards...
(That's my brothers hand, not mine
And if you've read all this then you're a saint! I hope I haven't bored you to death.... Perhaps you'll make you're own lil slice of bread and have an adventure like me and my brother did with Fred!
Lots of love,
