Third hat crochet project. A sea urchin hat. Lots of mistakes on this one but I love it and wear it often.
First crochet project, learned by watching youtube videos. Not bad for a first try.
This hat now needs to be added on to as I mistakenly threw it in the wash and shrunk it. Its a soft enough wool that it stretches over my head still but now sits well above my ears.
I realized today these pieces were not posted on this blog.
A Blue Owl pillow cover I made for my sweetie. Appliqué with retro fabrics.
Appliqué with new fabrics. I found the basic design on-line and altered it as I cannot fully use another's design. Being a artist who paints naturalistic I altered shapes to make more sense to me. To personalize the quilt I placed the family pug centre. I designed the pug from a photo of Fozzie who is actually a black pug but to fit the scheme I made him tan and put him in a camouflage coat to help him fit in with his wild neighbours.
As one can see I altered the design of the rabbit by uprighting the ears and adding a tail as where we live there are an abundance of city jackrabbits. The buffalo I redrew, tilting the horns forward. The bear was the only shape not altered. I do thank Sindy Rodenmayer for her original design that inspired me to create an beautiful baby quilt for a grandchild.
The bag that kept growing, it ended up much larger than I intended but hopefully its found a good use.
The goat is a pigment printed image from a painting. Given as a gift.
