Free Batman Amigurumi Pattern by Tales of Twisted FibersI made a promise on the grave of my parents that I would rid this city of the evil that took their lives. By day, I am Bruce Wayne, billionaire philanthropist. At night, criminals, a cowardly and superstitious lot, call me… Batman.” – Hush, Chapter 12: The End | story: Jeph Loeb | art: Jim Lee

Well, you know what! Batman dropped by my place today and he said to tell you he says hi! I was expecting to him to be a lot bigger and well, you know, muscular but the fella turned out to be just a little over 6.5 inches tall! And slightly rounder around the tum! Well, Christopher Nolan, you lied—Batman doesn’t look like Christian Bale at all!

Mister Mojo Amigurumi DesignI never thought I’d have to put up a parental advisory warning on my blog. But there it is, slapped right on top of that photograph. So if you are not supposed to walk into a liquor store and buy yourself a six-pack, you’re not supposed to read this post either. Sorry, but that’s how it goes. Well, as for the rest of us grownups, I guess we can all handle a bit of ‘explicit content’ involving an amigurumi dude and his amigurumi spliff ;)

Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for Mister Mojo, a storyteller par excellence and a connoisseur of erm… herbs! Mister Mojo Amigurumi Design Mister Mojo can’t remember the last time he washed his hair. Or his shirt. Or his Bermuda shorts. What he cannot forget though are the ghost stories his dad told him when he was just a child. Though I doubt his dad won any ‘Father of the Year Award’, the old fella sure did turn a young Mojo’s head into a repertory of creepy stories.  Mister Mojo Amigurumi Design That’s why every time Mister Mojo lights up one, he gets into a storyteller mode, getting more and more animated as the bone-chilling story progresses. And you know what, he manages to scare the crap out of everyone, every single time. So if you see this dude with a smoking herb stick, hide your children mommies and daddies—or they will be scar(r)ed for life! Mister Mojo Amigurumi DesignP.S. This amigurumi was made for P, the wonderful guy I happen to be married to :)

P.P.S. Yes, he loved it :D

Bitsy, the baby in a Donkey Suit

??????????Bitsy, the baby in a Donkey Suit?????????????????Here she is, as promised. Baby Bitsy in a donkey suit! But before we get to the free pattern, there’s something I want to share first. Regular visitors to this blog already know I never give up on an opportunity to tell a story based on my amigurumi characters; today’s not going to be any different :PBitsy, the baby in a Donkey SuitThe idea to give this baby a donkey suit came to me after reading a few news articles on the “Brick Donkeys” of Nepal. Unlike this sweet little amigurumi baby in its pretty jumpsuit, what I’m about to tell you today is not pretty. It’s either going to jolt you into action or swear you off this blog permanently.

The brick factories in Kathmandu employ some 1500 donkeys and mules. In a country without any laws governing the welfare of animals, the abuse is rampant. Each animal is made to carry 3,000 to 5,000 raw mud bricks a day to and from the furnace. The animals are beaten relentlessly by their handlers. Pregnant donkeys work up to the day of delivery and are given only a few days to recover. These “brick donkeys” are underfed (most donkeys suffer from dehydration and malnutrition), overworked and exposed to serious hazard in the course of the work. A majority of them have open wounds. Some have wounds so severe that their spine and vertebrae are exposed (click here to see the condition of working equines in Nepal). Once the animals become too sick to work, they are left to die. In short, they are worked to death!

These are the brutalities working animals in Nepal have to face every day of their lives. From these horrible stories of animal abuse and torture was born Bitsy, the baby in a donkey suit.Bitsy, the baby in a Donkey SuitDOWNLOAD THE PATTERN

I hope Little Bitsy serves as a reminder to us all that only we can right the wrongs being inflicted on these voiceless creatures.

Animal Nepal, a not for profit organization working for animal rights, runs The Godavari Donkey Sanctuary, a rehabilitation center for the rescued, handicapped and sick working equines. This small, underfunded—yet fiercely committed—organization also runs another animal shelter where they treat, neuter/spay street dogs, provide them shelter, and help them find their forever home. Animal Nepal, which has been providing free treatment and sanctuary to sick and abandoned draft animals since its establishment in 2004, has also been advocating a day’s leave every week for the working animals and fighting for a ban on these “blood bricks”.

If you love my free pattern, please consider making a small donation to Animal Nepal to help them in their mission.

DONATE TO ANIMAL NEPAL

You can also help by signing this petition to urge the Government of Nepal to stop equine abuse, and force the brick industry to become responsible.

SIGN THE PETITION

Thank you so much for caring :)

 

UPDATE (April 03, 2014): Bitsy’s pattern is now available in Dutch, thanks to Amifan who translated the pattern. The pattern can be downloaded from her Ravelry page.

REVISION (February 21, 2014): The pattern has been revised. A few silly errors had managed to creep in, but thanks to CodyJunk who kindly pointed them out, they have been fixed :)

For Marius

Baby Bitsy & Marius the GiraffeI know it’s been a while since my last post. And I probably wouldn’t post today either had it not been for Marius.

Earlier this week, two year old Marius was killed. The Copenhagen Zoo thought his genes were too common, something that did not suit their breeding program. So they shot him, chopped up his body in full view of the public, which included children, and fed his carcass to other zoo animals. Why? Because this healthy young giraffe was deemed too common, too ordinary.

Now another Danish zoo, Jyllands Park Zoo, says it may kill a seven year old male giraffe, coincidentally also named Marius, because the zoo considers himunsuitable for breeding”.

If the idea that some lives are less bothers you, please take a moment to sign this online petition that urges the zoo to spare Marius’ life and find a more compassionate alternative when it comes to dealing with surplus animals or animals deemed not fit to breed within the zoo.

SIGN THE PETITION

Baby Bitsy & Marius the GiraffeBy the way, that’s Bitsy, the baby in a donkey suit, and her friend Marius, the giraffe. Next week, I’ll be back with a free amigurumi pattern for Bitsy. So until next week, take care and have a fabulous Valentine’s Day.

One more thing. Baby Bitsy and Marius said to tell you “Thank you for caring” :)
