I posted yesterday and I can now reveal that it is the chin of the lion in the same book that I made this ram from by Vanessa Mooncie. He was great fun to make, I particularly love the way the horns came together. BOOK
I am slowly working my way through the Crochet Trophy Head book written by Vanessa Mooncie. I have still only finished the mouse completely. I have bits of the hare, ram and bear to finish. I am sure I will get there in the end. I am loving following the patterns now that I am fully used to how they are written and understand how the heads work up. The picture shows me mid-way shaping the back of the zebra's head.
Some of you may recall back in the summer of 2015 I had a Dunster House Log Cabin constructed in my back garden. In my mind, it was alway going to be my craft/sewing room. It has taken a while to convince my husband of this... BUT I DID IT!
I received this fantastic book for Christmas and I am totally obsessed with it. So far I have made the hare, mouse, ram and I am now on the bear. When I first started I felt like I was a beginner, I had not done any amigurumi for a long time and switching back to having to count stitches took a bit of getting used to. I have to say I have yet to complete any of the heads I have made, I will get round to it at some point.
I made this Tunisian Wingspan Crochet Scarf quite a while ago and it is the most used scarf I have ever made. Once you get your head around the pattern and the stitches it works up really quickly. The
free pattern I used can be found HERE
This is a little different from my normal projects that I post. I have been having fun with my Cricut Explore, I found this FREE cutting file on a fantastic Blog named Something to Craft about. The cutting file can be found HERE It is a Studio file so you need to be a bit clever converting it so it will work in Cricut Design Space
I have to admit it was a really tricky one to do as there were so many little parts of Vinyl to stick down.
I was really pleased with the result, it cheers up a really boring downstairs loo. Noticed I said was! When I stuck it on the loo seat I thought the AT- AT was having a drink from the loo (a bit like a dog would). Now, every time I look at it I think it is being sick; I am not sure how long it is going to stay.
I am so pleased I came across this pattern for the Christmas Crochet Character Afgan . It has taken many hours but it is finally done and I am so pleased with it. I decided to a a crochet bobble border, which also took a very long time. The pattern can be found HERE
So, my biggest project ever has taken me just over two and a half months. Everyone in my house has gone to bed and I had to share. I know many of you will understand what it is from my sneak preview! I will take photos tomorrow.
