Brief Description: I am in a craft slump. Life is trying right now, winter has been long… (boring whinging blah blah blah life blah you get the idea). This equally boring wash cloth is as mundane as they come- but the yarn is cheery and it has now been completely used up. I’ll take that win.

Team: Witch Weekly
Brief Description: Kidlet is rough on the knees of her pants. Well, usually just the one side, specifically. I worked on getting them back into rotation in short order as I’m fairly certain a growth spurt is coming and they won’t be useful to her for long.

Prompt/Challenge Title: Eeylops Owl Emporium
Project Name & Page Link: Cat Cloak
Team: The Quibbler
Brief Description: My cat needed a new costume, so I made her a cloak! I made it by tracing her santa costume and using it as a reference. It’s made from pieces of a fleece blanket and some velcro - all from stash! The edges of the blanket were serged(?), so I used them as the edge of the hood.

It’s a little big, so I ended up tucking in the extra velcro when she was wearing it. If she wears it again, I’ll probably end up trimming it down.


(she got several treats for cooperating)
