My friend, Becky's birthday just passed. I finished her presents a little too late but that's ok because she didn't realize I was going to send her anything anyway. :)
Present #1: Hunger Games MockingJay cup cozy
She loves the Hunger Games books and movie so I had her sister, Rachel, cross stitch a MockingJay for me to put onto a red cup cozy. I think it came out really well. :) I just hope Becky doesn't realize what we are doing because she saw her sis stitching the Mockingjay. hehe
Present #2: A cute mouse amigurumi
Becky was born in the Year of the Rat according to the Chinese horoscope. And since her favorite color is red, I thought a cute little red mouse! :) I used this Pocket mice free pattern.
He's so little! :) He fit right into the Starbucks tumbler I am sending as well. :) That's present #3. :)
I did do one modification to the pattern:
into 1st chain:
hdc, slip stitch, dc, slip stitch, hdc, slip stitch
I hope she likes everything! Happy Birthday!!
