TMNT

Just before the deadline….!

I just made these for my friend’s son’s 5th birthday (it was the 21st of June).  I am totally pleased with the way they came out.  I had grand expectations to finish Splinter the Rat before the birthday but i’m not so good at forcing myself to finish projects by a certain date – it seems to take the fun out of making it!

Yes – they are napping on my bed before they had to be locked in a box for the party!

I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but it’s been really hot here this week! Unfortunately my polar bear can’t really keep me cool, but he’s keeping me happy, anyway:

Remember, theme change approaching on July 1st: the new month-long theme will be WIP (Work In Progress) – a perfect opportunity to finish up some of those crochet projects you started and didn’t get around to finishing! We don’t have a banner image for the theme yet… Eve was going to make one, but she’s indisposed. Would anyone like to volunteer to make one? Let me know if you do!

The parameters:

  • Text has to say ‘Crochet Along’, and WIP or Work in Progress – you can choose!
  • Size of image is 760 pixels wide by 190 pixels high.
  • Any images you use must be copyright free, or you must get the permission of the copyright holder(s) before we can use the banner.

If there are no takers, I’ll whip up a banner for us on June 30th 🙂

This is the little manatee I made for Heather over at Frankenpug. She won my 100th post give away!
Since he is a water baby, I thought he would fit with the Summer theme…..

I can’t share the pattern as it wasn’t my design…….but it sure is cute!

Mr. Rabbit

Here’s my new guy!  I think he turned out pretty cute.  I’m really in to using buttons right now – i seem to want to put them on everything.

Here is a pattern I wrote over a year ago, it was on another blog but I thought you guys might like to see it again. It’s super quick and a really good way to use up some of that scrappy yarn lying around.

This is my new little friend “Cleo the Cat”.  She likes to hang out in the bookselves and spy on interesting new characters.

I made Cleo out of some vintage varigated yarn that I found at a thrift shop and she is wearing a little off white t-shirt with vintage buttons sewn on the front.  I made the pattern as I was going, but if you’d like the pattern i’ll try and scratch one out.

Enjoy!
