Big Ben loves his Pudgy Elephant! The other dogs have been getting the stink eye all morning because they kept trying to steal it.
Today was a crochet kind of day. One & Two Company Workshop has a free cupcake pincushion pattern that was calling my name.
This was a stash buster. For texture for the “cake” I used TLC Amoré yarn, Caron for the frosting and the cherry, and I Love This Yarn for the whipped cream. Instead of sticking to the pattern I made a flower to use for the whipped cream.
Kara, at Petals to Picots, posted a fabulous (and free!) Thanksgiving Turkey Crochet Pattern on her blog last year.
I used 2mm beads for the eyes, tweaked the beak, and crocheted feet to help stabilize him.
Thank you so much for sharing the pattern, Kara!
This is a new pattern for the mice. It’s crocheted all in one piece from back to nose. After finishing off, I cut the yarn long and pulled it through the body to chain the tail. It works up much faster than my old pattern. The multi-color is the test mouse, made with Red Heart yarn and H hook. The orange mouse was made with F hook and James C. Brett yarn.
Red Bird. I think this will be a good pattern for a penguin but I need to move the beak up another row or two. F hook and James C. Brett yarns. Color is more accurate in this photo.
These are going to be a rabbit and a frog. I had all of the pieces made and sat down to start sewing when I discovered a sneaky, four-pawed, crochet thief (innocently napping in the background) had been into the bag. One eye and leg for the frog, both arms, legs, ears and tail for the rabbit have entered the canine twilight zone. I checked all the usual places and they were nowhere to be found. Next search location is the bottom of the toy box…
