I am one of those people with a million nicknames. Ing, Ingie, Inga, Schwing, Ming the Merciless, Slingblade, and the list goes on (some are too embarressing to say - just ask my sister, Liesl). It seems like everyone I know has a different name to call me other than Ingrid. I am also one of those people that love to shorten people's names or put a y at the end. I just think that the way you call someone says how familiar you are with them and shows a sort of comradaree with them - does that make sense?
Well, one of my nicknames that my Dad uses is Fred - actually any form of Fred - Freddie, Fredlets, Ingafred, etc. I decided that it was a good name to use for my pattern company. I have always loved stuffed animals and friends. I decided to name each of my designs after someone that is close to me. I will do blog posts on each one of my little friends so that you can know who they are named after.
I am working on a new fun pattern. I am so excited because it is so cute and I just love this new little friend. I hope you will love it too!
