in love!

I saw an idea this morning on SoulMama, and I simply could not stop myself from making something similar of my own.  I love it soooo much!  It was a quick project and cost me a total of $1.99 (for the frame, from Goodwill).  It could have cost more if I had to buy more materials, but everything else I had on hand.  If anyone is interested in a tutorial I'd be glad to post the pics I took along the way!

Old Favorites

I have had several more orders this month, including two of my old favorite amigurumi patterns, Gina Giraffe and Oliver Dino.  It had been a long time since I made the Oliver pattern and I remembered how I had to do some tweaking to the pattern the first time around to make it come out right.  This time I tweaked again and noted my changes.  Hopefully it will be easier if I ever make it again. 

I've made the Gina so many times now I hardly even have to look at the pattern.  But I always love the results!

Both of these were burp cloth/rattle sets and I was very happy to have found some great coordinating fabrics at our local craft store.  Aren't these little giraffes so sweet? :)
