Regardless, llamas are still adorable, and my friend Chelsey has recently discovered her own obsession with these cute camelids, so I couldn't resist making this little alpaca and dubbing it a llama for her sake.
Here are a few photos of her:
I made her (according to Chelsey, the llama of her dreams is a girl named Pippy (yeah, she's weird, I know)) from some tea-stained white fleece, with two black beads for eyes. I added a little blanket on her back, too, from some fabric I found in my mom's stash, which may have been a shirt in a past life.
It was a mission to take photos of this little lady llama outside, because the wind was howling and kept blowing her over.
The pattern was really simple and turned out very cute, if a bit fat, but I think that was because I added a bit too much seam allowance.
In a moment of sheer madness, Chelsey, upon receiving her llama, went on to create a Twitter account for the llama, proudly dubbing it "Pippy". I'm not sure how to feel about this.
