The Secret is Out!

The Secret Project can now be seen! Meet "Mini Minnie":

This was my Mom's B-day gift. She's a Westie (the toy, not my Mom) look alike from Alan Dart's Perfect Pups series. The pattern is Sirdar #2101. Done on size 6 and 2 needles, but I substituted Bernat Boucle and Bernat Softee Baby yarns for the suggested Sirdar yarns.

I found a dollar store collar that looks very similar to the one that the real Minnie wears. It's red with white paw prints on it. You can get a glimpse of it here:

But details are everything in a gift. Check out the tag that I had made for this:

The Youngest wanted this toy so bad! He kept crying for "Minnie" . He got to her a couple of times when I wasn't looking, but it was so cute. He sat down and kissed her over and over.

I have to move this past weekend's doings to tomorrow. But I promise, it was Redneck heaven. Hmmm...


  1. How cute! Usually I don't care for knitted toys, but this one is adorable.

  2. Aww! So cute and fluffy! ^_^

  3. WHERE did you find this pattern?! I've been looking for the Perfect Pups series forever! You did a reaaly great job on this.
