Here are a couple of the WIPs I have finished.
First is an amigurumi lion from one of Ana Paula Rimoli's books. His name is Fredrick Douglas--the kids suggested it, and now I need to review my US history. He'd been sitting in a bag without appendages for half a year. He's happy to get out.
Next is a denim blanket. I had accumulated a lot of cast-off jeans. (Don't we all?) I'd cut all of them up into 6" panels and 3" strips a couple months ago. I'd assembled two blankets in Dec, and this one was sitting around waiting to be attached to it's backing (which happens to be double-knit fabric).
Now I only have enough of the 6" panels left for one more blanket. But I really am not sure what to do with all the 3" strips. The one thing that surprised me about these denim blankets is that they are NOT WARM! The kids love them, but they're chilly when you first get under one. Think of pulling on jeans first thing on a winter morning. It takes a while for you body heat to warm them up. So I don't really want to make another blanket. And I have a ton of strips. They're about as long as a pant-leg, or half one if there were worn knees in the jeans I ripped them from. Any suggestions? That aren't too time intensive and fiddley?
