Just finished this one, made completely from stash!! I bought the owl prints a few weeks ago but had no real project in mind. I had a request for a quilt for a new baby whose parents love browns and greens
My first time using a bamboo batting, and I backed it with a chocolate coloured fleece. It is so soft and snuggly, I will definitely be using it again
I cant remember what started it, but I had a sudden interest in making a sock monkey! This one is my daughters, she showed a real interest when I was researching sock monkeys online so it was a little 'bonus' birthday pressie last week
I found the socks at a local shop, bargain price of 4prs for $6AUD.. I really just wanted these fun stripey ones, I may or may not make the others into monkeys too
I used an online tute, they are everywhere, apparently the style has been around since the 1920's
As part of a wish list discussion before the latest Aussie swap, oodelally mentioned she would like a "knitted mandrake" . Me being a HUGE Harry potter fan, and sometimes knitter, commented about how cool it would be if there was a pattern out there for one... Next thing I know, a link was posted !!
