Notes

This is my second Happypotamus. My boyfriend gave him name, L`Oranž, and yes, this little one is for him.

First I made all African Flower motifs and then joined them using join-as-you-go motif joining method.

I used fine steel crochet hook 1,00 mm. For securing endings, I used smaller fine steel crochet hook 0,65 mm. It was much easier than with hook used for crocheting.

I used 100% cotton crochet embroidery thread and polyester non-allergic stuffing (for pillows and toys). For eyes I used black safety eyes (diameter: 9 mm).

I was working on this little one 32 hours (crocheting 30 hours, stitching ears 1 hour, stuffing 1 hour).

Measurements of L`Oranž: **10 cm high**, **9 cm width** and **21 cm long**. Weight: **227 grams**.
