I’ve been crocheting a little bit here and there and have completed my next little creation! I made a octopus! I showed her to my niece via Face Time and she has decided to name her Bea! Bea is a shy little octopus with a sweet little removable headband. She’s pink with eight yellowish legs!
I feel like Bea is a bit sloppy made because I’m not too great with crocheting but I am indeed proud of her! =P After practicing so many balls I decided to turn it into something and somehow managed to make little legs then tah-dah there she was! Hope you like!
I completed my second skirt last Friday but decided to let the pleats sit in place for awhile before letting the strings out. Here’s a picture of it when I was still working on it. Took it on my phone, so it’s grainy.
I’m happy to have it done but I can’t believe I pleated 7 yards of fabric! >.< Whew!!!! It’s a good thing I had a handy pleat board, it made it easier but was still very time consuming. After letting my skirt hang on Nicci for a week, I took out the threads this morning and took some pictures of it.
I’m planning on rethreading it before the weekend ends to hold the pleats in again. I remember when I was younger my Mom would tell us to rethread our skirts after wearing them from the New Years, but I don’t think we ever did so she always went behind us and threaded them herself. My were we bad!!! My little sister actually took a picture of my Mom a few days ago and to my surprise she was working on a skirt too. When I go visit her I’m hoping to pick up a few tips and tricks because she’s been making them for a long time now…and without a board. >.<
Thanks for viewing!
