Urbis Pattern

I was visiting an urban exhibition (urbis) with my sister before she went to New Zealand for 3 months…. One of the best bits was the graffiti installation:

thelondonpolice5
www.thelondonpolice .com are responsible for that…

My sis and I loved it so much that I was inspired to make her an amigurumi version for her birthday, made stripey as she is mad into stripes and it suited him!

So Urbis was made, parcelled up to her boyfriend’s to take out to New Zealand where he spent the next month bobbing around in the cab of their campervan, seeing penguins, snow snow and more snow!

here he is (a bit blurry):
