Crocheting with fabric was very different but I loved the result. Cutting the strips and then joining them to make a ball took about an hour. If I do it again I will probably look into an easier method of cutting the strips. The pattern is from the very talented Crochet Dude. I can’t wait to give it another try once I find the right fabric.
I have a niece who loves Spongebob Squarepants and since I was making crochet toys for Christmas, I tackled Spongebob. My niece loved him. I tried making him more folk art-doll type than amigurumi. I might do another one as I work my way through all the characters since Spongebob was pretty easy. That is, if I can remember how I made him. This is why it’s so important to write down instructions.
So I missed Thanksgiving but I did do a Christmas Cthulhu. My husband loves these so his reaction to them makes me want to create more. I did a Christmas one for his stocking. I added a scarf and hat to make him extra cute and Christmas-looking. Working on a few more themed Cthulhus that will be gifts. Once my friends have received them then I will post pictures.
For Christmas I made my niece a little acorn purse from the pattern at Roman Sock. I did the closing a little different since my top didn’t want to fit that well on it. I sewed it on about three-fourths of the way and then added one wooden bead to keep it closed. I love purses and can’t wait to try this one again for my daughter who loves to collect acorns.
