Where has this month gone?

Sponge Bob Mini Rag Quilt

Ok, so I need to get on board with Blogging A LOT more! I mean between school, work, sports and the flu???  UGH! I’m just barely feeling a little better!

Geez I truly had not meant to be MIA for this long!  BUT I do have LOTS to share and I’ll be sharing a little bit every day!

1st up is this SUPER cute “Mini” Rag Tag Quilt blanket and a Crinkle toy that I made with Sponge Bob Fabric!  Love how bright the fabric is!   I just need to wash it a few times to start the ragging process.   I had this fabric left over from making my daughter a Rag Quilt Purse.  I’ve got some more goodies up my sleeve!

Until my next share thanks for stopping, have questions please ask and as always….

I’ll share more a little later along with a Doll version I created using the same pattern. Which is from MJ’s Off the Hook Designs. It’s an AWESOME pattern which can be found on Ravelry.com. Also quick and FAST to make up.  Which is always nice! Well need to get my Xmas decorations put away so I’ll have the rest of the day to play!  Thanks for stopping by and come back a little later as I’ll be sharing more goodies and the Best Christmas Gift I got!

What’s been on my Hook

Hey all! So it’s been crazy busy over here. I’ve been getting ready for a Craft Fair I’ll be in very soon and time is just ticking away!  Plus I’m really looking forward to seeing my Daughter and Son-In-Law in a few weeks!!  Looking forward to that!

MermaidOn to what I’ve been working on –

SO I’ve been seeing all these GORGEOUS Mermaid Blankets in a variety of colors and finally I broke down and made one!

 

 

Mermaid 1
I absolutely LOVE how this came out!  So as you see mine is Black & Grey well I’m representing “Ursula” which most know is from the “Little Mermaid”.

I had a lot of this yarn and well that’s the first thing that popped into my head!  So right away I thought I’ve got to do the Evil Mermaid! LOL!

Extremely happy with how it turned out! Below in the next picture is the back of it.  So you see how to get into it! Talk about warm & cozy???

 

Mermaid 2What do you think?  I know I’m for sure going be making more!  In colors of course!  With the Holiday’s just around the  corner these would make GREAT gifts!  If you are interested I will take orders.   I’ll be adding to my Etsy Shop very soon!

If you are a crocheter looking for this pattern you can find it HERE!  It’s a great pattern and super easy to work up! Questions? Please comment here!
