Crocheted Baby Mermaid Cocoon

Hey Crafters!  Well first I hope you all had a great and safe 4th of July celebration for those who celebrated!  We spent it with Family & Friends and GREAT Food!  I’ll have to share of course my Spinach Dip recipe but also that cake that was there! It was Yummy!

Mermaid Cocoon 1Well on to my finally finished project – Yes as the title of this post said Baby Mermaid Cocoon which I had been dying to make!  I have to say I’m very pleased with how this turned out too!

I found a great video on YouTube which I’ll post the link below for those who maybe interested in making one! Don’t be intimidated it’s really easy once you get the hang of it. I had to change it up just a bit as I wanted my scales to lay just a little differently!

There are 3 videos 1 for the Body, 1 for the Bikini Top and the last for the Starfish headband! Click HERE for the Body part then you’ll see the rest.

 

Mermaid Cocoon 2Materials I used for this project were all Red Heart Yarn – Colors in Turqua, Pumpkin and a little bit of Aran.

I just LOVE the Starfish Headband & The Shell Bikini top!  This would make a great baby shower gift and a super CUTE Photo Prop of your “Little Mermaid”.

These will be in my Etsy shop soon as soon as I take just a little bit better pics! Just had to share before I call it a night!

Well that’s it for now.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the Yummy Spinach Dip Recipe! As always thanks for stopping by and…….

I wanted to share my next project before I head out!

I’ve been wanting to make one of these for awhile now and am finally getting to it!   Any guesses? I started it a few days ago.  As you can see in the 2nd photo it’s much larger now!  That’s where I ended last night! I am loving how this is turning out!

Well time to go make my famous “Spinach Dip” to take to my Aunts house a little later! Ok it’s done I just have to “Taste Test it”  You know gotta make sure it’s good!  Will totally share that with you all! Super Easy & YUMMY too!

Thanks for stopping by and as always…..

Thunder and Lightening……

PerfGrammy n Marcusect Crafting weather!  Well Ok, everyday is perfect crafting weather who am I kidding!  We for sure need the rain but as always it won’t be enough!

Well I am finally finished with the last project I shared! I mean it’s not like I was busy with my Son’s 11th Birthday over the weekend or anything!

His actual Birthday was yesterday!  I have no idea where the time goes but I just wish sometimes it would slow down!

This is my Mom and him as we got back from the Movies. We saw Max and we really enjoyed it!

Charlie BrownAnyway, I couldn’t give more sneak peeks of my project as you’d of guessed right away! So without further ado – my latest Amigurumi project!

Yep Charlie Brown! I love PEANUTS & the Gang so when I saw this kit I just had to get it! Link is below if you are interested!

The kit comes with all the materials to make 3 projects – Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock. But the book has all the instructions to make 9 more characters!

LOVE this kit! Plus I also was able to get the Disney Classic Kit and I’ve got the Star Wars one next on my list PLUS a few of the other ones!  Well I’ve got another project that I’ve got to start and I almost did before I finished this one BUT I was good and finished up Charlie Brown first!  Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment or email me directly!

Happy Craftin!

What’s next on my hook…

Good Morning all and Happy Saturday!!

Well Baseball is officially over for my son.  Bitter sweet buy this Mama needed a little break until it all comes around again in August!  So it’s time for Fun in the Sun!  Well not so sunny right now actually a little foggy lookin outside!  But there’s a nice cool breeze.

AmigurumiAnyway, here a quick peek at my latest project.  Yes another doll but not sure you can tell what it’s going to be.  Since my last doll, which still doesn’t have a name, I’m been just a tad bit obsessed with dolls. This one won’t take as along though.

As always, thanks for stopping by and Happy Craftin’,

My Newest Project Revealed!!

Doll 4After Math

 

Happy Friday All –  Well I’m finally finished and I have to say that I stayed up til almost 2 am finishing HER!

This is my first Doll and I LOVE HER!  Not my first Amigurumi as I’ve made animals!  See the after math on my table last night??  Ok, so I am not showing you the WHOLE table! LOL! The book I used is in a link below.

Oh Man but it was so FUN making her!  I’m thinking I’ve got a new Obsession.  How can I not!  The possibilities are endless!  You know I’m going to HOOK me another one right?  You betcha!

Doll 3Here she is standing up! She’s coming in at about 13″ tall!  Now what to name her?? HMMM……

My son likes the name Andrea “Lady A” then changed his mind to Makayla.  My daughter and son-in-law like Donna, Sophia, Aubrey then Madison “Maddy” – I’m kinda liking Maddy.

What do you think?  As always thanks for stopping by and…
