In January, while I was in England, I kept busy doing a bit of crocheting.
I had purchased a couple of balls of yarn from Fabricland with the idea of making the new twins something.
Luckily, there were two different balls of yarn.
I don't often crochet but I don't mind doing it.
These are the finished items - a ball of yarn, directions and a soft, stuffed head.
I thought this was interesting.
It's a little hand impression on a soft, thick blanket. It was of one of the twins in England.
I saw this on the way to the park. It's a hanging basket of flowers - in January.
Tomorrow is Canada Day and instead of wearing the traditional red and white, a lot of people will be wearing orange to "honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada." My middle daughter got an orange t-shirt from a friend of hers but it was a large size. She brought it over along with a book that has instructions on 101 ways to transform a t-shirt.
Here's her sister wearing the t-shirt after I transformed it. I just cut off a large chunk from the hem, sewed it so it's thinner and then gathered the top part. I sewed the two pieces together and voila, an easy fix.
There were actually two. I asked my eldest daughter, who lives in British Columbia in an area where there are a lot of mule deer, if she wanted them.
They need to be framed and the buck actually should be cleaned first. I still have another 'oldie' that I made but it's quite slanted. It's a couple of pandas and I suppose I could finish it and give it to one of my grandchildren.
The crocheted toys for your newest twins are sweet and will dry fast after being washed unlike many stuffed toys. Clever way to transform a big T-shirt for a smaller person. The opposite way would be much more difficult! I see your needlepoint projects are from the same Danish company where my mother bought patterns, mostly flowers.ReplyDelete
