I found these patterns in a magazine in the UK and have been knitting them on and off ever since!  My cousin and his wife recently had their first child, so I thought they would be ideal!

here they are together:


The new baby (Erin) got them last weekend and I introduced her to each one.  She seemed to be fascinated by Mr Elephant but was a little freaked out by Mr Zebra.  However she was only about six weeks old at the time, being held by a stranger (me) and hungry!!

It turns out that they have decorated her room with a african safari/wild animal theme (which I didn't know about) so they fit in perfectly!

All of the patterns have been added to ravelry now if anyone is interested in the details (sadly no patterns) look for designer Alan Dart

Those are super cute! They remind me of a fabric I used recently with stuffed animals in the jungle!

These are crazy cute. I feel the need to snuggle them... so think you've done your job well! This makes me want to learn to knit better! Thanks for sharing.

Aww, they are so perfectly adorable! I can't even choose a favorite! Cheesy How cool that they fit in with the room's theme.
