Finished!

Finished!

Well, pretty much. That one floppy ear needs some work.

  • This is Unice the Unicorn by the Velvet  Acorn on Etsy.  I used leftover yarn from the gold Barbie dress I knitted to crochet the horn. The horn is my own concoction. The lavender one I knitted by the pattern was too big.

This yarn is Vanna’s Glamour. The rest of the scarf and hood is knit in Bernat Blanket. I worked on it off and on for two months.

I finally made one! Remember the video I shared on Feb. 4? Here’s my first attempt:


The quilts I use as slipcovers in Mama’s living room came tied in a long bias strip of fabric. I used it to wrap the wire base of this bangle. 

The video called for Aileen’s Tacky Glue, but mine was so old, it had dried to a solid bottle of rubber. I used Modpodge for Fabric and did not like the way it felt when dry. I wrapped the wire a second time and just used the Modpodge on the underside of the fabric. Much better!


A little bird kept it all in place while it dried!

The fabric strip was colorful, but flat, and dull. I added a very shiny, bright purple ribbon with a metallic edge. 

After I wrapped that around and secured it, I followed with a variety of tiny coordinated beads strung on 26 gauge copper wire. I swirled the ends and used those swirls to attach it to itself. Finished fun!

The mane thing…

The mane thing…

on Vivi’s scarf is half done and looking good, I think! This was my project for February! Check out today’s date! I said I might get it done in time for summer! Today is Wednesday, and there’s a slight chance of snow for Sunday night. I will try to get it done!

The yarn is Bernat Blanket, and it is heavenly soft! It’s also a good yarn for a finger and forearm workout!

This one turned out a little better. 

My friend, Laura, and I used the cozy instructions from Craftsy. I rounded the corners on this one, but they didn’t come out very round. I also decided to skip the top stitching on this one. I glued the raw edges together and clamped them at the opening where I turned it.

We’ll see how well it holds up in the microwave and washer. 

The 10” fabric squares are from Craftsy, too.
