I decided to make a braided rug, but when my "rug" wasn't getting bigger as quickly as I hoped, I gave in to my crafting add, and made it into a small nest instead. My squirrel pincushion was more than happy to jump in, along with a couple of spools of thread & my scissors, and it is now the perfect little sewing organizer basket for when I am sewing in bed!
Maybe one day i'll make a rug, but today i'm happy with my nest.
If you love my squirrel pincushion, like I do, I bought it from my friend Lucy at Lucy's Locket. She now sells patterns & kits for not only squirells, but all sorts of adorable critters, so you can make your own!
I also made a few infinity scarves, because they are so fun to make! These are going to make great gifts for Christmas. It is never too early to start crafting for Christmas! I ironed the 2 on the left, for a more crisp, clean lines look, and left the red one fluffy & tube-like. Which look do you like better? I can't make up my mind.
So, what have you been working on? As always, feel free to post your latest finished recycled wool projects on my Facebook page. I love seeing them!
