Makka Pakka

My first first free pattern is the ever adorable Makka Pakka from In the Night Garden. He was a present for my 1 year old nephew who absolutely adores this show. In fact, it was the first show he new how to say all the characters names. Remember he's free to make. This is a completely original pattern, I made it from three source pictures.
