ScrapHappy September

This month’s use of scraps is small, but long-awaited.

May I introduce Arthur C. Vaark, companion to Mr Snail.

He is a scientific vaark with an interest in writing and teleportation, so I’m told.

He was made from one of my old socks and some small felt scraps. Who knows what adventures he will get up to…IMGP4057If you’d like to make your own vaark, the booklet containing the pattern, designed by my friend Danielle, is available for download from here. What better use can you think of for an old sock?

I’ve been inspired to write this (and future) ScrapHappy posts by Kate, who provides links to other (mostly sewing) ScrapHappy bloggers at Tall Tales from Chiconia on the fifteenth of every month… do check them out.

  2. Are you aiming for 2001 vaarks, perhaps? He’s adorable, especially the purple tail, an infallible sign of a science-vaark, I’m told…

  3. Too gorgeous.
    And did you know?: South African Dutch, which became Afrikaans, is the language from which English borrowed aardvark, originally written as aardvarken. The aard- part is the Dutch word aarde, which means “earth” and comes from the same Germanic stock as the English word. So, basically, we have “earth pig” 🙂

  12. Hahaha! What a fitting name for a scientific Vaark! They really do turn their paws (or long bendy noses) to just about anything, don’t they? I’m looking forward to following Arthur’s adventures!
