What really happened is that the little shit fell off my backpack this morning, somewhere on my way to work. Oh well, I've got more yellow yarn (Thanks, Tammy!), so I'll make myself a new Jake. A bigger Jake. A Jake that I won't hang on my backpack.
Until then, I've got my girl, Cake the Cat, here to keep me company. I finished writing this pattern tonight, and she was inspired by Mia Handcrafter's original pattern for Jake. If you make it, let me know what you think. I have to say already, just from looking at her, I should have made her arms and legs a little shorter.
Every aspect of Cake was a stashbuster for me. Good Lord, I realized I'm a fairly serious packrat when then it comes to artsy fartsy supplies!
