Here’s some of the stuff I’ve been working on over the holidays.
First, I made a cute little cupcake for Nora’s Birthday.
It came out so cute that I knew I had to make a bunch more. The two on the right hand side of the picture went to Julie’s friends, and the one on the left hand side went to my aunt.
I kept one, to put in my new little cake dish that I got for Christmas.
After the cupcakes, my Aunt Renee volunteered me to make my cousin Jamie a little red riding hood doll, since he is obsessed with that story right now, and so I obliged. I was not prepared for the amount of work little red riding hood would take, and I spent quite a lot of hours leading up to his birthday getting her done. It was fun to make because of the detail – it was certainly the most detailed thing I’ve crocheted, and now I’m pretty sure I can crochet just about anything.
It’s neat, because her cape comes off and you can play with her hair.
She also has her little basket, which I just had to make some foods for out of clay. I think they turned out pretty well since I hadn’t touched clay in at least a year.
In fact, I spent so much time on her that I had a hard time relinquishing her (also why I have so many photos), but I knew Jamie would love her. I may make another doll in the future, I just wish I had more people request stuff to give me an excuse to do it! I can’t really just randomly crochet a bunch of amigurumi dolls just for myself.
Anyway, now I am off of the crocheting for a bit since Miss Little Red Riding Hood wore me out. I’m currently knitting some scarves, and tonight I’m going to start sewing 2 blankets that I am making. I think I’ll be returning to more cupcakes at some point though.
