Adorable animal patterns by Sincerely Louise
Love animals? Designs from Sincerely Louise, a.k.a. Louise Walker, let you show off that love with whimsical, unique patterns that can also be functional.
The Pterodactyl Dinosaur Bag is a fun little purse that’s feminine and cute, while still letting you show off your paleontology obsessions. With a patterned fabric lining and chain strap, it perfectly walks the line between dressy and kitschy.
The Fantastic Fox Bag is another purse option for an animal loving knitter. With an adorable face and detachable tail, this little guy would work great for fox fans of any age.
The Stegosaurus Hat is a great way to keep warm while showing off your favorite herbivore. Two rows of spikes emulate the dinosaur’s iconic back plates, and this will look great on kids as well as the young at heart.
Keeping with the dino theme, the Diplodocus Dinosaur Scarf is a great choice for beginners who want to try something a little more fun than a basic stockinette or garter scarf. Increases and decreases create the shape, but this piece is mostly stockinette, so it’s a simple way to make something interesting.
Walker is perhaps best known for her cruelty-free taxidermy heads, like the Giant Mr. Hare Taxidermy Trophy Head. She also offers deer, fox, badger, panda, triceratops, and t-rex patterns, so you can have a whole wall of trophies without ever having to kill anything.
The Explorer Owl would make a great companion on any adventure, or just hanging out around the house. Its adorable fat little body, big eyes, and felt feet and beak make for an expressive and sweet-looking little stuffie that you’ll want to make a whole flock of to give away as well as keep.
