Going for the Gold

Not only are the Winter Games in Vancouver going on right now but ANOTHER even bigger event is taking place:

The Schmancy Winter Games Challenge

Kristin, who runs the fabulous Plush You blog among many many other things, issued a challenge to toy makers to create a team of Olympic plushies. Each participant was given a sport and today was the deadline to submit your plushie to win a medal in that event. My event is Figure Skating. (yeah!) So without further ado, please meet Hippolita Hoppington of the Frog Pond Federation:

Hippy is a classic skater who loves all things sparkly and girly. She loves hot tea with flies and leg warmers and is a bit upset with me for not making her a pair to wear with her new skating outfit.

After her Olympic career is over she is hoping to become a cover model for Amphibian Times:

Or perhaps pursue her passion of torch singing:

So please wish Hippy luck as she goes up against some heavy competition over at Plush You. You go, girl!


PS - if interested, Hippy is made from 100% cotton yarn and poly-fil. She outfit is tulle, felt, fleece, ribbon and sequins. She is my original pattern and MAY be put up for adoption in my Etsy shop. She could use a sweet young girl to take care of her. She would like that.

So glad she has some traditional white skates. Enough of all these "flesh tone" skates !
