Happy Monday everyone!
I am so excited to show you the new Tunisian Crochet project I just did!
I made him up for a special Valentine's Day gift for Melanie!
It was so FUN to create from the top of his head down to his cute little bendable toes!
I wrapped wool yarn around floral wire to create his feet so that they would bend and hold the weight of the doll while standing.
... and I added needle felting accents to his forehead, eyebrows and cheeks to create his texture and expressions.
His body was done with the Tunisian crochet - simple stitch
I love the woven like fabric it creates!
... and his wings were created in single crochet with my regular crochet hook. :)
I gave him to Melly on Valentine's Day and she just loved him!
I think the hardest thing about making my gifts is keeping them a secret! :)
I kept wanting to send Melly photos of him while I was making him!
I was pretty proud of myself for keeping him a surprise!
Did you make any gifts, either food or crafty items for gifts this year?
Please leave me a note and tell me all about them!
I am excited to hear what you created!
