Maisie





I made this little friend for a friend of my sons for her 4th birthday. I also got some MandyMade tags made, this is the first time I have used them.

Stitching comments: Picking the material was probably the hardest, I really loved the material that was used in the book and just couldn't get it out of my head.

Frog Rattle




My second attempt at Amigurami

Stitching comments: I used 4ply cotton this time with a 2.5mm hook, much better gauge and of course didn't have anything to do with the fact I'm getting used to doing it again!! The mouth is a bit wonky, but what's a frog without a bit of character?

Lessons Learned: Need to push the stuffing in a bit further down when continuing to crotchet, it got stuck a bit in the stitches.

Dog Rattle




My first attempt at an Amigurumi

Stitching comments: I was a bit hasty in wanting to try my hand at crocheting again, I did do a bit when i was growing up, I dove in the deep end with the wrong wool weight for the crochet hook that I had and didn't practice to get the guage right. Anyway, this is the result, better luck next time.

Lessons Learned: Use what the patterns says to use, 4-ply cotton with 2.5mm hook, not a 3.5.
