I have been working on perfecting my embroidery floss crochet skills this summer, so here are the little creatures I have come up with! All of these creatures were made without patterns, just figuring out what to do next as I went along. The first few are made with standard embroidery floss, and the rest are made with a pack of cheap floss marketed to kids for friendship bracelets. The later floss was easier to work with because it was not meant to be separated like standard floss.
I created this dragon for a friend after making one for myself in purple.
This one is the biggest, measuring a bit over 5 inches from nose to tail.
I created this zombie octopus for my partner (faemystique) for round 6 of the One Tiny Stuffie Swap.
Next I tried to use some of my pink floss, making this pig.
I worked on this truly tiny angler fish while on family vacation.
See the thimble for reference in this and the next two photos.
For my partner (Makaylalee) in round 7 of the One Tiny Stuffie Swap, I made this pastel peacock.
I tried writing down what I did for this peacock to make a pattern. To text the pattern, I made another peacock for myself.
Unfortunately I learned that I have no future in pattern writing since I had to ditch the pattern halfway down the neck.
The biggest thing I want to change/work on is eyes. I have just embroidered eyes this far, but I would like to start using beads or plastic eyes of some sort. I just don't know where to find such tiny safety eyes.
Comments and suggestions would be appreciated!
