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.


Tug-Of-War Dog Toy

This is a very simple dog toy. You can easily make it longer (which I recommend mine is fit for a small dog), or wider. The Tug-Of-War Dog Toy is great for people who are learning to crochet and want to make a toy for their dog. I’m sure your dog will love it!

This is my cat who loves to play with pretty much everything. When I crocheted this fish he loved it and I hope your cats will be just as thrilled as my cat is about this free, crocheted, cat toy. Enjoy the pattern 🙂  This pattern can not be sold nor the amigurumi be sold but you are allowed to give these as presents.
