Here we have another TNG (The Next Generation) pattern, Worf’s Bat’leth.

According to Klingon mythology, the first bat’leth was forged by Kahless the Unforgettable in the 9th century. Kahless cut a lock of his hair and dropped it into the lava of the Kri’stak volcano, then plunged the burning lock into the Lake of Lusor and twisted it into a blade. After forging the weapon, he used it to fight the tyrant Molor, and then gave it its name. This story was not recorded in public texts, but was passed down verbally by the Klingon clerics as a test of Kahless’ return. (TNG: “Rightful Heir“)

The Sword of Kahless was preserved by the Klingons following Kahless’ death, until it was stolen by the Hur’q when they plundered Qo’noS about five hundred years after his death. (DS9: “The Sword of Kahless“)

Worf owned a bat’leth that had been in his family for ten generations. After his mate K’Ehleyr was murdered by Duras, Worf used this weapon to kill Duras in honorable combat. (TNG: “Reunion“)

During his time aboard the USS Enterprise-D, Worf trained both William T. Riker and Beverly Crusher in the use of the bat’leth. (TNG: “The Quality of Life“, “The Pegasus“) (http://memory-alpha.wikia.com)

Cabbage Patch Kids

This cute pattern was designed with someone in mind who loves them.

Her name is Amber, and she is my official pattern tester. Amber has an extensive collection of Cabbage Patch Dolls, so when I was thinking of what to make her, the answer was obvious.

Cabbage Patch Kids

Cabbage Patch Kid Forest Friends Frog

This one is from the Forest Friends Series, the Frog.

I just love how this pattern worked out. Orange, green and blue is Amber’s favorite colors, making the decision on which doll to make much easier. I scrolled through all the dolls, until I found one with those colors, wallah. Done.

The blue and orange fabric is from the Fairy Frost range in Robert Kauffman fabric collections. The other colors were from my stash, and I would not be able to tell you their brand or make.

Just for fun I am including the video where I talked about this pattern and my reasons for making it. And a video from Amber sharing the wall hanging with us.

This is me!

And this is Amber!

I hope you like this pattern, let me know if you make it, I would love to see it.
