I had a heap of plain white mugs and teacups that I never ever used, so I decided it was time to kittify them! I used porcelain paint pens to create some different designs, mostly to give to friends. I did keep the librarian cat, the lumberjack cat, and the baker cat for myself though ^___^
I recently made these fingerless mitts; they are really just a crochet rectangle which is later seamed up the open edges. I was really pleased with them though because I made them by not tying off each row of yarn so that I only had four ends to weave in upon completion! (I hate weaving in ends!)
Thank you Patraw; I find styrofoam to be really useful when I want to make larger pieces and don't want them to be solid fibre ^___^
Wow! Thank you rackycoo!!
It's kind of a funny compliment, isn't it petskin? I know my parents mean well though; whenever I cook something particularly well, my dad always proclaims it is "better than a five-star restaurant!" so I assume they mean "made by a professional", which is lovely for an amataur like me to aspire to ^____^ But, I agree, handmade things are better ~____^
Thanks rockingbearranch and dulcet! I was a bit surprised I didn't have more pineapple stuff, actually! I'm just a teeny bit obsessed with this particular fruit ... just gotta keep crafting more, I guess! ~____^
