These past two days were all about me finishing some animals.
The first is the seahorse, its finally finished!! I'm so excited because it took me a month to actually get it done. I like him over all but stuffing him was a little difficult because of all the different shapes in the body. The tail was a little hard to crochet too because you already have everything else stuffed. I will definitely make another one but it might now be for a while. :)
This second one is so cute. I really like how she came out. I really like how the colors look together. I'm not sure if the feet were supposed to be lower but I think it looks fine like it is. I will probably make one of these in a boy version soon.
This last one is the ball monster from the Design your own monster on Craftsy. I really like how he turned out. I wasn't sure how the stripes would work out but I think he looks great. I really like these two colors together.
So I wanted to share with ya'll how much stuffing is in the 5lb box of poly-fil. Its a lot of stuffing! Which is perfect since I will be making lots more animals & monsters. They started selling these at my local AC Moore for $21 but you can get it for much cheaper by using a coupon. I got this for about $13.
I got my yarn Wednesday!! I was so excited. I ordered from yarnmarket.com and got 13 colors in Berroco Vintage. The shipping was quick which is great. The only not so good thing is they accidentally sent me one of my yarns in DK weight instead of Worsted and it was an error by them because I checked my order and it was all in worsted. I have decided to keep it but I would have liked to have gotten it in Worsted. Other than that everything was great plus it was on sale. As you can see I got my yellow so the purple owl I started a while ago will be finished by next week.
Awww, the platypus is too cute!ReplyDelete
how cute are these animals!!!ReplyDelete
I love all the creations, as usual, but particularly love the monster. It's full of character.ReplyDelete
You should let yarnmarket know they sent you the wrong weight yarn, they will probably send you the right weight, and they might let you keep the dk. They will at least have to pay for the postage of the returned yarn if they ask for it.
Arrr, these are cuties! The seahorse looks like it's coming straight from Jim Henson!ReplyDelete
