Abe i nye klæder

Måtte lige lynhurtigt fremtrylle denne abe i jakkesæt og butterfly til min kære nevø som skal konfirmeres i morgen. Jeg syntes den er blevet rigtig god. Håber han syntes den er sjov. Den har samme tøj på som han skal have 🙂


Standart opskriften er her: http://gfx.tv2.dk/images/KBJA/abe.pdf

Jeg har fjernet den runde mavedel og lavet en lang trekant som jeg har syet på foran. Så har jeg hæklet et langt smalt stykke, som jeg har syet fast i den yderste kant rundt om nakken og ned til trekantens spids, lige ved kanten på trekanten, så denne er skjult.
Så ligner det en åben jakke med skjorte indenunder. Har lavet en butterfly ved at hækle en aflang firkant og binde en kort luftmaskekæde rundt om så den bliver trukket sammen til en butterfly.  

Så er den også afleveret 🙂
Jeg fik blod på tanden 🙂 og besluttede at min mands niece også skulle have en abe til hendes nonfirmation. Det blev til denne vampyr abe som blev taget rigtig godt imod. Jeg er simpelthen så godt tilfreds med den. Kappen er fra en opskrift på en vampyr lalylala. 

Crochet Stewie Griffin

There’s not much to say. When I saw this free pattern for Stewie Griffin I raced to my yarn basket to find all the colors and got started! He is so cute that evil little baby 🙂 

The pattern is great, not many pictures though, but that’s ok. The hard part is the tiny fingers. But luckily there’s a video tutorial for that.
If you love family guy then this is just the perfect little project. 
Stewie here, when he is done, is for my husband. He needs all kinds of geeky stuff for his desk at work 🙂

Nordic tapestry crochet – skull hat

I always accept a challenge when it comes to crochet. So when I was introduced to a pattern for tapestry crochet I just had to try it out. 
I found the softest cotton/acrylic yarn in my little girl’s favorite colors. She loves pink and bright colors. 
Normally I don’t particularly care for skulls. But I thought it might be pretty cute in girly colors. And I love it so far! Cool but sweet at the same time. 
And it’s a totally different challenge to crochet from a graph. I’m really having fun with it. 
The pattern is free and can be found here:
It’s in Danish and English (UK terms)

Crochet monster

It’s Easter and my little girl has the chickenpox. So our Easter vacation is cancelled. She gets this big Easter kinder egg. With a huge version of the normal yellow plastic egg inside. I have made little crochet Easter eggs all week. So I’m thinking that I must use this egg for something fun to cheer up my little girl. 
My husband gets this great idea that insted of making an Easter egg out of it I could make a chickenpox go away monster. So I grab my hook and this is what I came up with. I think it turned out pretty great. 
If you don’t have this type of egg you can just sew the two halves together and stuff the body. Then it can’t open but it will still be cute and look like it has a mouth.
