A Zing For Life

Here's Zingy...
Star of the EDF TV adverts


I love Zingy and wanted my own, so I searched the net to find a crochet pattern. I found this one on Ravelry - just search for Tor Thorpe.

It was quite easy to follow and came together quickly. The pattern suggested white felt for the eyes, but typically I have every colour BUT white! So, I crocheted some white circles and used buttons for the pupils and a bead for the nose.
Zingy gets everywhere...
I'm obsessed...

  11. Oh my word, he's too cute!! I think I prefer the crocheted eyes to be honest, and it means that yours is unique which is always a bonus! :) Great work!
