Saw the cutest pattern yesterday, and decided to pick up my crochet hook. Havent been crafting in about 2-3 years, but I feel that will change now! Anyway, I have made a baby sea turtle, made by Planet June. He got a little odd and weird, but Im very pleased with him anyway. And the fact that he made me wanna crochet some more is just a bonus!
As the topic says, what do you do with all your finished embroiderys?
I love making them, but dont know what to do with them when they are finsihed. Some has turned into wall-hangings, but my mom have gotten most of them, in case she get some ideas. (She is a quilter, so I hope she do something with them) But I cant make hooplas or wall-hangings of all!
I was wondering if someone is up for an amigurumi swap? I havent coordinate one before, but Im willing to try, with some help, if people are interested? Or if someone else want to coordinate, I could help?
I was just wondering what makes a granny square a granny square? Is it some kind of techinque? As I have joined a swap with granny squares I was looking around for pattern thats free, and found several patterns on the website; www.crochetpatterncentral.com But they are in categories of "Square 8"" and Im not sure everyone is a Granny square. I dont want to make a square and then my partner gets mad at me because I have done a non-granny square. Hope anyone can help me!
I was just wondering what you guys do with all your softies that you make? Do you give them all away, or do you sell them, or something else? The reason I ask this is because Im not sure what to do with all I have made. I try to sell some (on etsy), I give some away, but I still have lots that I dont know what to do with. I dont know any kids. I have been thinking about sending them to a childs hospital, just to make the kids happy... Or do you have some other ideas?
I have found a blog which have a pattern of a little whale to make! Super cute, so I started crochet at once, and now I have just a tiny bit left. I thought I could do it, but it turned out not as the piccie.
I have come to the part where I should crochet flat, and Im not relly sure how to do. Cause when I tried, I crochet through both layers of yarn, so I would get a flat end, but I maybe did wrong? I hope someone can help me, so I get the cute tail and its looking nice.
Here is my first amigurumi! A little snail! His name is Helixfelix (dont ask why) and Im pretty proud of him. The pattern is one I have bought, but for the next snail (I love "fairy-snails", not real ones tho) I will change some stuff, and hope for the best. What do you think? (I hope I have done it right with the piccies)
