I made a snake for baby B to crawl around with. He loves to hold something in his hand while he moves about the house. The snake is fleece with a corduroy underbelly, has a rattle in the tip of the tail, and a crinkly tongue.
This is also the first thing I’ve successfully finished sewing in many months, so I was pretty pleased when it was done! (Even though it’s a real easy pattern… but the tongue took a couple tries!)
I am a washcloth machine over here. They are really easy to make over the course of a couple evenings, and don’t require too much concentration. I’m going to either have to start giving them away or stacking them up in corners of the house.
Can you believe its almost that time of year again? All these little Longhorns are off to new homes. My shop is on vacation for a little bit, but let me know if you need one before football season starts!
Its not exactly warm blanket weather, but long summer evenings are good craft time for me. After our evening walks, and we are settled back inside, and the last of the day’s light still comes through the windows. Right now, I am working on another crochet blanket, this time a ripple pattern.
I love how this quilt turned out! All the fabric was found in my fabric stash, and I think the blues, greens, oranges, and blues work really well together. The back is made from a soft striped flannel. I finished it with little white ties in the center and corners of each square. Now only three quilts left to finish!
