The hungry caterpillar

Here is my last big project modelled by the latest addition to our family, my nephew Elijah. 🙂

I think everyone will agree that he looks  absolutely gorgeous! I’m now wondering if I could make an adult sized one for winter 🙂

The Big Reveal

I teased with pictures of a project and said I would share the finished project once the tiny human it was destined for had arrived. 🙂

Well arrived he has; the tiny human in question is my nephew Elijah 🙂

I saw photos of a crocheted sleeping bag and hat that looked like the hungry caterpillar months and months ago. Very much inspired by the photos I set about crocheting my own version.

I didn’t use a pattern and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I wonder whether I could make an adult sized one 🙂

I made two hats as I have no clue about the size of babies heads. It’s nice tho as Elijah now has one to grow into 🙂

Crocheted Comforter

In my post a couple of days ago, I teased with a few photos of the comforter I’ve crocheted. I intentionally didn’t show the whole thing because I wanted to take some better photographs, in natural light, with a better camera. Also, I felt, it deserved it’s own post!

SAMSUNG CSCI am so pleased with how it’s turned out. The (Sirdar snowflake) yarn I used makes the granny square beautifully soft and fluffy.

SAMSUNG CSCAttaching the head to the comforter was something I’d seen on Pinterest (I think). I loved the idea but thought that it would look better if attached at the corner rather than in the centre of the square. The pattern I used for the teddy bear head is available free here. I did, however, adapt the ears and rather than creating inner and outer circles opted for one half circle per ear.

I’m really pleased with the way this turned out and will definitely be making more… perhaps with other animal heads. My Husband suggested adding paws too, which I quite like the idea of. 🙂
