You’ll get use to my sense of humor…I hope.
* This is a 2 part article. The thing is, I wrote it after finishing the little red one. I liked the result, it’s the cutest thing, but I was not proud of my sewing…I don’t actually sell any of my projects, but I need to know I could. So, I thought about it all day and came up with my own pattern, which would be part 2.*
My boyfriend buys most of his work shirts at the thrift store. Don’t know why, but the men’s clothes section is filled with new shirts/pants (sometimes with the tag still on). Good brands too.
Anyways, we spend a lot of time there. I rarely shop for clothes, so most of the time, I let him do his thing and I go to the MARVELOUS miscellaneous section, where I always find yarn. Or kitchen stuff.
One day, I found a box full of scrap yarn for 1$. I thought it would be perfect for my amigurumis. I then forced my boyfriend to have a super ball making evening. (He’s so sweet) I usually get that box out for tiny parts of amigurumis, but yesterday, I saw Twinkie Chan’s gummy bears! I simply had to make tons of them!
There was too much sewing for my taste (and capacities) in her pattern, so, I made my own. Instead of making 2 flat pieces, simply crochet in « oval » (which is just like in rounds except for the first « row-round-oval »)
– CH 8
– SC in 2nd chain from hook, 3 SC in last stitch.
– SC all the way on the other side of foundation chain. (18 stitches)
(She explains it so well!)
Round 2 to 14
– SC all around (18)
(I improvised for the close, I guess you could sew it shut, but I used a mixture of SC with opposite side + Slip stitches)
You can use her pattern for the rest, however, if you use my method, adjust your arms and legs as they might seem too big. I made mine slightly smaller. Smaller nose too. Also, I used magic circles.
There you go, much less sewing!
What did we watch?!
Mr.Robot. (My boyfriend can’t stop calling it Mr.Big. I didn’t know he was such a big fan of Sex and the City before this, I swear!)
New show on USA network. I think it plays after Suits.
There are only 5 episodes. It’s intriguing. And weird. SO WEIRD. Yesterday, I asked if we were watching a remake of Requiem for a Dream. All in all, it has so much potential.
