Love love love
Check out my package from mini_mum, I got super spoiled, lots of lovely little monsters. I asked for arugami and boy it's come in bundles. I have no idea how I would re-create this which is why I asked for some, a craft I haven't tried yet. I think now these will help inspire me. They are so well made and mini_mum worked out the patterns herself and a first for her for 3D crochet. Mini_mum are you sure this is a first, they look amazing!
So pics of the monsters ( I must mention I have misplaced my camera when tidying on Fri night and was hoping to find it before posting but it's got hidden somewhere so I will re-post better pics when it appears)
Although monsters, they are pretty cute! The one eye one really remind me of monsters inc, the octopus like one I have by my monitor and the others I have added to my shelves to liven them up. They create quite a good talking point. I'm sure the frilly multi coloured one would have a squeaky voice if it spoke, it is just the sweetest!
Also, and, I know this may offend some people at this time of year, I did ask for a xmas decoration on my list as I love to have lots of hand made items on my tree and swapping is a really good way of getting more! They all always have a story too and it's great to remember at xmas.
It is super solid and thick, I love it. I hope I can make some more to go with it, I've asked mini mum the secret of the make as I haven't ever tried needle felting either.
Thank you mini_mum, I've really enjoyed this swap and these little monsters have just made my stressful week a lot happier!
