This being my first blog ever I thought I would look back on a few firsts in my crafting career. Like my first amigurumi:
This little guy took me about 4 hours to complete and I had to unravel him a few times. I think his tail was the most tricky! He is a free pattern that I found on the web, Chubby fish is what she called him. It suits him well!
My first sale was my recycled magazine coasters.
These coasters are great! You can even see words on them! I tried to find a pattern/tutorial online for them, but all I could find was the circle ones. I am horrible at making circle coasters. They always come out wrinkly. The square ones are straight and perfect! I created my own tutorial and it is on my etsy site melunder8.etsy.com. The coasters are also for sale there if you don't have the time to make them.
Last but not least my favorite first.... my first creation using my own pattern!
This Tiny Turtle is only about 4 inches long and 2 inches tall but isn't he adorable! He was super easy to make and I made him almost purely by accident! I was trying to make a bigger turtle, but kept getting frustrated, so I decided to make him really little instead and just modify the shell pattern. After that I just made him a head and said screw the legs, lol. He is super cute this way and I hope creating patterns in the future is as easy, but I doubt it.
