Mud cloths (bogolanfini) are a distinctive fabric made by the Bamana peoples of Mali, West Africa. They are made into men's sleeveless loose tops and women's wrap-around skirts (tafe). Narrow pieces of cotton cloth are produced on treadle looms worked by men. These strips of cloth are then sewn together by hand to create a complete textile which is then resist-dyed.

    I wish I knew how to crochet! Maybe someone who does will make me one! Maybe a floppy giraffe! Yes Please!

  • Netta Brodrick

    Looking forward to trying Hippo

  • Michelle Brooks

    I have, personally, made 12 of her projects - 5 were hippos. You can make your motif smaller (with the correct amount of sides, each) and you can make different size hippos! The possibilities are endless with different colors and sizes! They are a lot of fun! Heidi Bears has some amazing crochet patterns - they are all well worth the small cost she asks. The cost of the pattern is nothing compared to the quality of work she puts into these amazing, well written, patterns!
