Wind in the Willows Characters: Mr Badger

Not sure what makes me love this chap the most: the shuffly slippers… the jaunty neck scarf… or the teeny specs. A great example of what makes Claire Garland’s patterns so uniquely special. It’s her way of capturing character and feeling. Just lovely and available to buy as a PDF download on Etsy.

Claire has managed to capture the flamboyance of Mr Toad beautifully in this pattern – love his stripy trousers and belted smoking jacket!

      Hello Lynda – the links in the blog post take you to Etsy where you can buy the patterns as PDF downloads – so they aren’t shipped to you but emailed and can be sent anywhere – hope that helps!
