Tigerente

A friend posted a wish list on her Facebook account one day.....she wanted a "Tigerente, Jack White on a plate and more weekends in Scotland".....not knowing what a Tigerente was I had to fire up the computer and do a quick google search.

The response was that Tigerente is a character in a German children's book by Janosch. (link to some photos) He is a little tiger duck - a stripy little duck.....with wheels. I realised that I could invite her to Scotland more often but that it was an expensive weekend for her, Jack White on a plate was going to be impossible but a Tigerente....I could make a Tigerente surely. So after rummaging through my crafting supplies, drawing up a pattern and a little stitching, 3 hours later the little stripy tiger duck on wheels lay in front of me. 2 days later, the Facebook wish list had changed to "I have a Tigerente"....



Sorry for the poor photo - not great light at this time of year. He should probably have been yellow with black stripes but I only had enough yellow felted pre-felt to make a few stripes and not an entire body. Apparently he is loved regardless!
