This is the "Blinded by Science" Phat Quarter swap piece I received from What Is Reality Plushies (flickr photostream here). It is a tube-nosed fruit bat and it is AWESOME. I love that I can play with its wings! The background is also the exact right colour for my craft room (assuming I ever finish painting it). I may have squeeed very loudly in the office when I opened it....

This is the edge of the patio around the rockery (with bonus Miskit and 1970s gnome), where I planted a border filled with plants and grasses last year to try to hide the hideous concrete edges. Winter and the lawn we didn't kill off properly have not been kind. There's also a huge pile of branches and dead leaves from a tree that didn't deal well with the weight of snow.

It's the most comprehensive pattern I've ever seen, including lots of information on sewing with knits, step-by-step instructions with clear photos, and many hints and tips. The PDF includes several options for the leggings, including shorts and different waistbands and cuffs.
There are links to different versions Laura has made and a tutorial for branding your own elastic here. If I actually knew any small children, I would be buying zebra print elastic and making them several pairs.
The pattern is £6 from the Titchy Threads website.
