I don’t really like wearing my hair down in the summer. I have such a mass of it, and it gets so hot. So braids and ponytails are my jam. I also really like headbands to keep hair out of my sweaty face while I’m outside. After seeing some cute headbands around, I decided to try to make a couple of my own. These ones are a tied variety, with a bit of elastic. Next I want to try a stretchier fabric! Do you know of any good headband patterns?
Some dinosaurs have stomped into the Little Amaryllis shop. Get one today before they are gone off the earth again.
I’ve been making stuffed animals! There are some guys in the sale section in the shop to help make room for the new zoo.
My latest custom stuffed animal request- something that looks like the mascot for Penn State. While my version isn’t really quite the same, I thought he was much more suited for a little baby nursery!
My latest granny square blanket! In the past, I usually just sew my squares together with needle and yarn, but I tried joining them with a single crochet this time. I know there are lots of fancy ways to join squares, so I figured I might as well start working my way up. I really love how it turned out, especially the colors. What are you working on lately?
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!
I love this embroidery pattern. I feel like its says- you are my best friend and you are always there for me- but with farm animals instead of words.
I started this pattern while I was sick the other week. I still like to feel at least a little productive while I’m stuck on the couch. It reminded me of my younger sick days, and I would cross stitch while watching movies. Its just enough project to keep you busy, but not too much that it makes your fuzzy head hurt more.
One down! All finished. A t-shirt quilt, comprised mostly of my extensive 4th grade Olympics shirt collection. I organized it in a lighter to darker color pattern going diagonally.
I finished it with a blue floral backing and binding. The binding probably took me the longest, since I did it by hand, and got a cold right in the middle that slowed me down. I added some little white ties to hold it all together. The batting is not too thick, so it feels like a light summer quilt. Totally picnic ready.
