Does anyone else have a Mom that loves getting handmade gifts, but refuses to use them saying they are too nice or too special. Well I made up this set for her for this mother's day. She uses those icky plastic bath scrubby things so I made up this pattern all on my own. These are pretty (If I do say so myself flowers, a tiger lily, a peony, a carnation, and a cabbage rose. I designed them so they would look pretty in a basket in her washroom. I used simple crochet and 100% crochet cotton yarn.
When my youngest brother was young. We being mean older siblings would tease him and scare the daylights out of him. Our favorite thing to scare him with was a plastic snake that we named Mr. Snakey. We would also find sticks and say they were Mr. Snakey. As such, he is 31 YO and SCARED to death of snakes. But I bet he won't be scared of these!
heres my Potato! sorry I didn't have a frontal only photo. Dead batteries in my camera or otherwise I would take a quick shot. The pattern is so fun and cute, plus super easy. my hint is to turn the tail inside out, my tail was not fluffy right side out but inside out is a fluffball!
I test crocheted this pattern for a person. I embellished mine, but hey, if a cat is squashed its tongue has to stick out. Actually I love cats and have a black and white one at home, and he is forever under foot and is in danger of getting squashed. The designer has an ETSY store but I do not know if she will be selling the pattern or not. Thanks for looking
Here are some photo's of my latest ami's. I told myself I needed to finish up some of my projects before starting anything new. The squirrel is from etsy, a squirrel named potato, the bunny is from lion brand.com website (freebie pattern) the alien and cookie are also patterns from etsy (different sellers). And the panda is from the ami volume #5 book. I used a clip and its arms can pinch things closed, or just pinch you. I think they are super cute. Now to finish up another shoulder dragon for my 17 YO, he's upset that the youngest one gets crocheted toys and he doesn't.
I just made up this cute bath puff! took me about 1 hour to do. My last bath puff fell apart, now I have a nice new one for my shower later on. and its super fluffy. I used a G hook and 100% cotton yarn.
At least that is what my kids are calling this hat. I think it lots of fun. I got the idea from that cute japanese pattern book that has fruits that you can make into household goods. The pattern for the fruit was for a tea cozy, but heck I use my microwave to make tea so I decided to make a hat! Goofy but I love it!
If you are like me you have way too many single skeins of the different noro yarns. I decided I had to make something out of it and I found a pattern, the woodstock duster from Interweave Crochet fall 2006 magazine. http://www.interweavecrochet.com/2006/materials_fall.asp#woodstock and since I have to add my own flair I changed it to my completed sweater. I just love it and I love how large the sleeves are. I don't remember how many different skeins of yarn I used but I am thinking probably over 10 skeins of different yarns. I even had to take a close up of the button I used, I made that when I had my kiln up and running.
Isn't Noro the bestest yarn ever! And the beuty of it, is I think all the yarns go together wonderfully!
Since it seems like I have been on a sushi kick, including going out to eat it too much lately. I finally got off my duff and finished this hat set that I have been working on for ever......... it seems . I used caron simply soft yarns (100 % acrylic) and a size F hook, single and double crochet and here it is. Hat and scarf and scarf unrolled
