Tangled Yarn and Words

Crochet Groot

 

Last December I made a crocheted baby Groot for my friend who loves Groot. Baby Groot is from the movie Guardians of the Galaxy. He is a small plant with little words. His eyes are made from cabachons and then the design in the eyes is made by printer paper and markers. The cabachon eyes will follow you around similar to how Beanie Boo eyes work. He turned out bigger than expected but other than that I am very proud of him. The yarn vanna’s choice Taupe Mist was the perfect yarn to make Groot look like a tree. I also used some green yarn for the crest on his head.

Needle Felted Hummingbird

My fourth needle felting thins ever. My first was the bunny, then two border collies and guess what this is. A hummingbird. I am definitely improving on needle felting and I can’t decide what I should felt next. But first I have to finish Christmas gifts. Christmas is just so close; it is only one week from now. Here are the images and some of the process that went into it.

Needle Felted Border Collie

This Saturday (7/15/17) I am going to go to Michigan. It is about a two day trip from here to there. We are visiting my Dad’s parents. I don’t remember the last time I saw them, I was probably about two years old. They have a farm with sheep and border collies and maybe some other animals. On Christmas 2016, they were the ones who gave me needle felting supplies. So, before I visit them I decided to needle felt them a border collie. This is my second needle felted item and has come a long way from my starting bunny.

Dumpling Cats

I made these Dumpling cats for my sister on Christmas. The pattern for the pink one is free and can be found here on ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dumpling-kitty

The small minty colored cat was a modified version of the pattern. Here is the pattern for the small kitten (it has not yet been tested so let me know if it doesn’t work)
