…when you’re busy crafting! This week has been fairly productive, and I’ve actually finished some things!
Remember that second fluffy scarf I told you about? Done! And added to my Operation Christmas Child bag.
And another project I started last week (but don’t think I told you about) is making good progress. A daughter of some of my closest friends will turn 3 in a couple of months. And she loves rabbits. She’s had a couple of ‘Bun bun’s since she was born, and it’s a nightmare if she ever loses them. And a while ago her Mum saw a pattern in Crafting Springtime Gifts. It’s a very cute rabbit with a smock dress and pantaloons which Little Girl would just adore. So I decided to make one for her birthday.
This is the work in progress on Tuesday:
Bunny in progress
And the finished article:
She’s so cute! And lovely and sunggly and soft – I made her from a dressing gown that was only £5 in the sales – bargain! I’m really pleased with how she’s turned out so far, and looking forward to making her clothes (which will probably be made from other bargains found in the sales). More will follow…
In addition, I’ve been buisily hooking away at a lovely ripply scarf. I came across the ripple tutorial at Attic24
. I thought to myself “That looks fun – I’ll give it a try and see what happens.” So I tried it and this happened.
And I thought “Well, that’s quite pleasing. I wonder what it’ll look like if I keep going?” So I kept going and it started to look like this…
And before long it grew into this…
Can you tell I enjoyed making this?! It took some time, but yesterday I made the finishing touches, edging it with a lovely purple border, and I now have (yet another) scarf.
I haven’t quite decided yet whether to keep it for myself, or give it away (which I’d quite like to do, but can’t decide who to give it to). I’ll hang on to it for now, and keep gazing at it’s lovely ripplyness 🙂
So it’s been a productive week, but the mittens and socks sadly remain unfinished.
