Bobbles Galore

Evening all

Finally finished wrapping all the kids presents today.  And mine.  Cant wait to open it, got a glue gun and bracelets and a purse with a picture of the kids on, its great.  I am wondering if hubby will buy me a little something as a surprise though lol

So after finishing wrapping I decided to play about with ribbons again.  These are todays bobbles

Used up all my nice ribbon so having to use what I have as I dont really want to buy more.  Although I will buy more to make my niece some school bobbles but they can wait, she hasnt started yet! lol

Had to make another bobble

Evening all

So, this morning my daughter decided that she wanted to wear the red bobble I made for her friend.  She now owns this bobble and I have made another one for her friend.  Wonder if she will get this one!  lol

And I got the moshi monster finished. 

My fingers are now aching, well, they have been busy the last few days.  So I need to find something else to make tomorrow that does not involve any sewing/crochet. :D

Another Bobble

Evening all

So, my daughter likes her bobbles so much, I had to make one for her best friend in school for xmas.   So I made this, I did singe the ribbon though :o  Hopefully she wont notice.

And this is the finished angry bird.

I have been asked to make a moshi monster.  That should be interesting, dont know what they are! lol

A Day of Crafting

Evening all

As hubby and 2 of the kids at football, and my youngest on the wii, I decided to use the ribbon and make some ribbon bow bobbles.

This was my first one and my favourite

Then I made one in burgundy and grey for my daughter for school, the button in the middle I stole from one of her cardigans. lol

This is a Christmas one with a huge jingle bell in the middle.  Gonna regret that one! :P

And finally this one. 

And I didnt even open my glue gun.  Although not sure how long the gems are going to stay in the middle of them without it as they dont seem to be that sticky.  Will glue gun them after xmas. :D
I have also been busy crocheting the angry bird.  Just need to sew him together now.
Have a great evening.

Gave Up On Dino, Made an Angry Bird Instead

Evening all

So the dino was a bit of a nightmare, fidly (used a small hook so my own fault) and wasnt sure about some of it so decided to come up with something else for my eldest.

Its an angry bird and he does look very angry lol  My mate wants one for her angry bird mad daughter so am busy making another one for her now.

Very exciting (for me anyway) I bought a glue gun today (xmas present of hubby).  I seem to have accumulated  quite a few ribbons (and bought more today) so am hoping to have a go at some ribbon bows for my daughter to use up some of the ribbons I have.   So watch this space lol  Although I may not be able to use it until after xmas. :D

Have a lovely weekend.

Funny Looking Stegosaurus lol

Evening all

Ok, so it wasnt a stegosaurus, it was a diplodocus.  Here is where I got the pattern from WolfDreamer Blog  And I got him finished to be told by my youngest that he wants one.  But I think I might try to make a HUGE one for his birthday, gives me plenty of time to make one :D

I am a bit worried about the eyes though, they are sewn on googly eyes and I think I might change them to felt eyes as my nephew is quite young.

And the other dinosaur pattern I have is a triceratops (I know its spelt wrong and probably so are the others) which I have started on for my eldest.  But I am having a night off crochet as my fingers hurt. :(

Thanks for popping by.

Pink Dino

Evening all

I have made the pink dinosaur for my neice.  I dont like the claws on them as I am forever trying to straighten them out on my sons dinosaurs so I havent given her any.

I dont think I should have done green eyes, they dont look right.  Ah well.
Now to make another 2 dinos for my eldest and my nephew.  Was thinking of a stegosaurus.  I have a pattern somewhere, I am sure. :D
