My intention was to paint again but there were just a small thing I had to try first.....................
I couldn't let go of my hooks. I had to try making an amugurumi, and got hooked again. They are so fun to make and I can't stop. I have been thinking of making one for a long time now and have been collecting tips and how to's over a long periode. I couldn't find a perfect pattern so I mixed. A bit from here and there, and my last item is close to how I want it to be.
It started with some Easter eggs.
This items are inspired from Red hot. The one in the middle has excactly the eggshells she made, but I wanted to do them differently so I skipped the coloured edge and made the final row in a different way.
This led me to try making some chickens and I did. I really like these ones. I was inspired by Jane but again I made a lot of changes on how to. I don't like to sew the head to the body so I had to change that. I did change their peeks too and their feet, but they look pretty much the same. I couldn't resist making them some clothing and I like how they turned out.
To find the pattern you'll need to choose her free patterns and scroll down untill you see it.
Well now I'm deep into it and I had to try making Mia's garden fairy. Again I simplified the pattern and did it my way. Not as successful as hers perhaps but well enough for me, and much easier to make.
The one in progress is a product of my own choices. Now it remains to make the personality. What I like the most about this one is that it's able to stand up. I love making them even that the work is soooo small and fiddling.
Isn't this one cute, standing there all alone.
Good at posing anyway.
Well, I guess it won't be paint on my fingers for awhile. I just have to finish this roll.
Have a good time whatever you are creating.
