I’ve made something that isn’t flat πŸ˜€ I love making blankets and cushion covers, and I’ve made the occasional thing where I’ve crocheted two flat things then stitched them together and stuffed them (some little owls and Christmas baubles). But when I’ve tried to make something that’s shaped, all my increases and decreases end up in the wrong place. A brilliant example of this is a small Christmas tree – how difficult can a cone be really? – that was truly terrible. I didn’t take a photo, I threw it straight in the bin. I wish I’d taken that picture so you could see how bad it was πŸ˜€

Mr MB bought this book for me

I waited until everyone was out and went through the book (these things are 3D, I needed to concentrate!), eventually choosing to make this

He’s only little but he took me all morning to make πŸ˜€ He’s temporarily blind because I don’t have any small beads for his eyes, a quick visit to Hobbycraft will fix that

    That is a cute little turtle, but with eyes it will be even cuter:)

      Thanks πŸ™‚ I tried french knots for the eyes but they didn’t look quite right. He deserves shiny beads πŸ˜€

    Hello there! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing! fecekgaacdcc
