My Christmas Presents - Webkinz Outfits

For Christmas, I made my sister, Anna, and my brother, Isaac, swimsuits for their webkinz pets. The swimming trunks are sewed and the bikinis are crocheted. For the trunks I used an American Girl shorts pattern and put custom tail holes and made sure the elastic fit the animal. I made up the bikini pattern.

If you are not familiar with Webkinz, Webkinz are toy stuffed animals that were originally released by the Ganz company on April 29, 2005. The toys are similar to many other small plush toys, however, each Webkinz toy has an attached tag with a unique "Secret Code" printed on it that allows access to the "Webkinz World" website. On Webkinz World, the Secret Code allows the user to own a virtual version of the pet for virtual interaction. You can earn "Kinzcash" by doing your daily activities and playing games, and use the kinzcash to by food and things for your pets room.

Isaac got his first two Webkinz for Christmas. He is very excited, and was on the computer all day after he got them. However I don't think he really likes his swim trunks I made for him.

Left to right - George the Brown Dog; Jack the Jack Russel; Ernie the Lil' kinz St. Bernard; Honey the Black Bear, (she doesn't have Honey on her account because she found him at a garage sale); and Patrick the Irish Setter. (Sorry, Patrick is cut off in this photo.)

Their back ends - George's is blue with stars; Jack's is NFL football themed and has Vikings on it because Anna is Brett Farve fan, the rest of the us are Packer Fans (Go, Pack, Go!); Ernie's has animals on it, Honey's is plaid; and Patrick's has clouds on it.
