Jelly Bums Duck

 Duck pattern is available from the website, Etsy and Ravelry.

Quack Quack all!
Just popping in to introduce the little Jelly Bum Duck knitting pattern.This design has to be one of my favourites from all the toys I've designed. I created the pattern as a mallard duck, however the duck can easily be  knit in all brown with a little blue stripe on the wings for a female duck version. I've included a front view and a side view of the finished toy as I think you you get a more ducky profile from the side, by seeing the full force of the magnificent bill.  I hope you like him, he's be super cute to knit up for a farm theme or 'old MacDonald' finger puppets for little ones.

So  now this leaves us with only one pattern to release next week to complete the new ten designs. So you know the score by now if you want a peek then head over to our give-away page to be in with a chance of winning the first copy.
Last weeks lucky winner of the Lady Bug pattern was Theresa Ann, so a huge congratulations to you. Remember if you entered for the duck pattern give away, the winner has been emailed so go check you in-box.
So as always remeber to like, share and most of all keep on knitting.
Have a great week everyone and I'll see you all next week.

Jelly Bum Ladybug

 Ladybug pattern is available from the website, Etsy and Ravelry.

Hello all, today is the release of the latest Jelly Bum design, it's a sweet little ladybug. Or perhaps you call them ladybirds? Whatever you call them, these little darlings are super sweet to knit up and  the very first bug design for Jelly Bums.

I've added in a shot of the ladybug from behind as You only get a glimpse of the wing design from the front. The wings are deigned to be able to 'open' in the middle like a really ladybug preparing to fly away. I'm sure some you your little one will go crazy for this design. So if you knit one up remember to share on our Facebook page or on the Ravelry projects page to show off your finished dolls and inspire other knitters with yarns or unique finishing touches.

It's crazy to think this is the 8th pattern of the latest ten designs. It's been great getting everyone feedback from the new designs and I've loved seeing some new finished toys on the projects page. If you want to have a peek at next weeks pattern release then pop over to our competition page to find out what it is. As always with the Apurl releases you can be in with a chance of winning yourself a copy, just like Emma Falvi who won a copy of our Flamingo knitting pattern last week. I hope you enjoy the new pattern and I'll be back again next week.
Happy knitting all.
