Sometimes I feel like I'm not getting anything done, but the fact of the matter is I really have been making a lot lately. Mostly because I've been taking up small, easy-to-finish, just-for-fun projects. yay!
These little cuties were my Valentine's gifts for the kids.
Theo got a little crochet elephant. The tutorial can be found here. This was my first attempt at amigurumi. Not too hard, but more time consuming than you would think. The only problem I found with this pattern is the trunk just kind sticks straight out. You have to bend and shape as best you can to make it look cute and curved.
Aurora's gift was my first felt food. Every year I think I'm going to make her some precious felt sweets. I only got as far as one slice. I don't get people who can make a whole cake. This took me way too long. And please be kind and ignore my obvious, uneven stitching. I think I was supposed to use a ladder stitch and I did, but perhaps I have to make them VERY close together. However, that would add hours to the construction... And I don't like how light it is stuffed with poyfil. Is there some kind of heavier fill I could use? I did add some barley in the bottom for weight. I do know there are plastic equivalents I could buy and I will next time, just so it doesn't appeal to mice. :)
What have you been making lately?
