I’ve nearly finished my first item of the new year and ran into a conundrum. It is a toy and I need to sort out eyes. I have safety eyes but they’re a bit small and it is for a baby so I think I’ll crochet something if I can find the right black/dark yarn in my stash for it. But still, nearly done!

Awesome that you’re almost done! Could you embroider the eyes?

1 Like

You could also make felt eyes and sew them on. Or leave them off all together if it’s for a baby. Either way I’m sure it will be cute and appreciated by the parents (and baby!).

It’s made of that bernat blanket yarn and the designer says one could crochet a simple black circle of worsted to use so I was thinking i might try that. I wish I had some darker blanket yarn, but I’ll muck about with what i can find in stash. It’s this owl.

Edit to add: I need to even them up, but I think this will serve him well:

Edit again: he’s done!

Hi everyone! I created an account just to join in on the fun ! I’m so excited to see everyone’s projects and hopefully will stay motivated to complete mine! I’m very good at starting them, but not so great at completing them :sweat_smile:

Alright! First project of the year! I found these wooden ornaments on sale for like 60 cents. Which meant a good first project with my cricut! I found some ornament cut files online and my cricut came with some green vinyl. I don’t have any of the tools yet so I think projects will be easier with that. But I’m excited I already have another project to get done this week.

I’m days late as usual, but I’m going to try this for another year. Hopefully this time I can post things as I make them instead of waiting weeks/months after the fact.

The only projects I have planned so far this year are:

  • a baby quilt (2/3 of the way done)
  • a pair of yellow socks (1/5 of the way done)
  • 17 million doll dresses (ad infinitum)

I’m also doing a severe fabric diet this year, which should make for some extra creativity, or just more fully confronting the fact that my stash has reached ridiculous proportions. We’ll see what other crafty adventures the year brings as the mood strikes us*.

*(plural in this case being me and the mouse in my pocket?)
