Bi-Weekly Pattern Share

Hi everyone!

It’s been another couple weeks and I have started another few projects…typical…I can’t work only one project at a time it seems 😛 I am going to share a project that I completed a long time ago, but had a lot of fun doing. Another project that I have completed a while ago was a present for a friend that I haven’t been able to give yet. The final pattern is a cowl that I made this week.

The first pattern share are patterns for sushi! I love eating sushi and had a request from someone to make them cute sushi rolls for their friend. I found patterns for different types of sushi on Joy’s The Craft Frog blog. They were easy to follow and in the end I made eight pieces of sushi. I also used the pattern on Karla’s Ravelry page for the shrimp/ebi sushi.

Here are my results:

37

Both patterns were easy to follow and I added little faces (with help from my sister) to make them a little more cheerful.

The second pattern I want to share is a amigurumi pattern of a unicorn. I found the pattern on Rachel’s Sheep Dog’s Fleece blog. My friend wanted a unicorn with lavender hair so I made it with lavender yarn instead of the rainbow hair that is on Rachel’s unicorn. I think I may have made too many pieces of hair cause the unicorn that I completed looks very top heavy 😛 I probably used too thick of a yarn for the hair. Will have to remember that for next time.

Here are my results:

I also made followed the body pattern for the head so there are two body parts and no head parts haha, but I could not be asked to redo it…one of those projects, but I still think it looks cute 🙂

The last pattern is a pattern on found on Hilary and Jessica’s Domestic Bliss Squared blog. It is a simple cowl pattern that can fit a child or an adult, but because it has the triangle pattern, it gives it a fun look. I completed it over a few hours and am really happy with how it turned out!

Here are my results:

Another project on the laptop shot 😛 I love how it looks! I made this as a present and still have to add the bow, but I might make another one for myself once I finish some of these other projects I started.

These are the patterns for this bi-weekly pattern share. Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Bi-Weekly Pattern Share

Hi everyone!

This pattern share will include some items I am making at the moment so the pictures will be work in progress pictures 🙂 One project is a bag that may be a little too big, but I can fit my projects into. Another project I just finished two days ago, and the last one is a project that is taking me a really long time to finish, but I am happy with how it is turning out.

This first pattern I want to share is a bag/purse pattern that I found at Make It Coats’ website. This rose bag is really simple, but looks great. I am using a 3.75 mm crochet hook and Caron Simply soft yarn so the bag is going to be bigger than the pattern specifies. I am using different colours instead of just a solid “fabric”. The pictures will just have the base dark green, but it will change to a lighter green, then beige 🙂

Here are my early progress:

954329543195430

I am not sure if the pattern is in UK terms or US terms, but I am reading it as if it is written in UK terms so the DC = a HDC in US terms. Next time I am going to make it smaller I think, but this will be a good size for carrying along my craft projects.

The next project that I finished a couple of days ago is a tooth fairy pillow that I have been wanting to make for a long time now. It’s so cute! I found the pattern on Sarah’s Repeat Crafter Me blog that I always go to!

Here are my results:

321

Next time I make one I’ll have to make the little pocket a little bigger, but I guess if you are putting coins into it, it will be ok.

The final pattern I want to share is another pattern I found on Sarah’s blog 🙂 I have made lots of perler bead character pictures, but I never thought of using the patterns for crochet. Sarah used the bobble stitch in place of a perler bead and the results are so cool! She has really great instructions on making your own bobble stitch pixel blanket. You can find her pattern for it here. I searched the website she suggested using and decided to make a pikachu blanket. It has 50 rows, and it’s taking me a while, but I will finish soon!

Here are some pictures of my progress:

954359543495433

I think really like how the back of the blanket looks like the front, but flatter. I really want to finish it soon and I think I will since most of the colour changes have been done now…maybe this weekend. If you want to make a blanket with the same pattern here is the one I used. Good luck!

These are some of the current projects that I am working on and one that I have finished. Enjoy!
