Finished up this rowdy crew yesterday. You can find them in the shop now!
I am not, by any definition of the word expert, an expert crocheter. But my ma helped me out semi-following these directions, and I got some help from this youtube lady here. After just a couple minutes of watching, I was crocheting so much faster than her (if you watch the video, this would be a joke).
I thought it might be fun to commemorate our first home in tiny replica form. It is the house we bought together, and our first home where we share the same last name, so I imagine it will always have a very special place in our hearts.
The cat bat pattern is my favorite in the pumpkin carving book. I carved it last year, and the year before, and I’ll probably use it again this year. Because I like it, and its fun to say cat bat.
Cat bat is a very simple little creation, so I made up a (very basic) pattern you can find here. Make your own!!! You can add a little face, or fangs, or fancy wing designs. I added a tail to mine. Because he is a cat, who is also a bat. Not the other way around. Possible cat bat configurations are endless.
And if you are looking for more Halloween stuffed animals, be sure to take a look at some new additions in my shop!
What an unlikely trio this would be in real life. Although, I have really no clue. Maybe foxes, moose, and beavers are besties out there in the woods.
This octopus was special made for one of my most favorite people for his birthday. I double checked to make sure he has the right amount of arms. On a side note, our new concrete table top takes photos like a model.
I have learned to crochet a couple times in my life. But I never really got into it. Then we learned to make granny squares. Granny squares are my jam. Heads up everyone. Guess what you are all getting for Christmas this year.
This past weekend we made a game-time decision to head down to the Renegade Craft Fair on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the girl’s half-birthday. There was one vendor there called Mod-Tops that was pretty awesome because they made tables and other types of furniture out of reclaimed wood and other products. The bike-table was the coolest one there I think.
