About Ningiu

Ningiu is the Greenlandic word for grandmother, since I'm part Greenlandic and because handicraft reminds me of my grandmother and mother I find the name appropriate.

I'll huff and I'll puff...

…And I’ll stuff.
Or the story of how my dinner plate became Billy the Bat.

It started when I wanted to make an owl. I’m not very good at freehand drawing and figured I had to have some sort of shape I could trace around.

My dinner plates fitted just perfect.

Afterwards followed a series of testing and changing of the original shape.
But nothing seemed to work just right

Then the last testing spawned a new idea.

And after another testing, Billy the Bat was born.

I think he is very cute, the next one is gonna have a bit smaller wings, and embroidered teeth instead of felt ones.

But all in all I’m quite pleased with my first pattern development.

I hope you have a great weekend.
