Nap time at work leaves free time for my fingers to be kept busy! I started crocheting again as I was digging around my art materials and found my hook. I decided to play around and see what I could do. I suddenly found these animals were appearing on my hook!!
The sizes of these creations are small because I wasn't so sure how they would turn out but they look ok. They are about the size of an orange, maybe a little smaller. I wanted to add something to the elephant so I sewed on some scrap fabric to his ears. He looks a little like a mouse and very surprised.
The octopus was quite easy- I wanted to originally make french knots for the suckers on the tenticles but I decided that would maybe be too much. Maybe beads? Hmm, could work on that. Also not thrilled with the eyes but will work on that too.
Just for fun I played about with some on the thread and made a flower... I added some thread and beads to hightlight the flower some more. Now all I need to make is a chain or sew on a piece of eleatic. I think maybe more swayed with the chain. The kids love to dress up.
