Would you like to take something unique to the next Christmas party you go to for a hostess gift? Or do you need to make a cute little something for some special kids in your life?
Then I have two fun projects for you!
Back in July I wrote a guest blog post for Red Heart here titled, “Christmas Ruffle Tree”. It was part of their “Christmas in July” blog fun. It is a different way to use their Sashay ruffle yarn – all you need is one skein of Sashay, a Styrofoam cone, your crochet hook and some sewing pins. On the blog you’ll see several photos with detailed steps of how to make your tree (including how to cover the cone with matching fabric). This tutorial is FREE!
The instructions for these Funny Finger Friends can be found on page 36 of the current issue of Crochet World (Dec. 2015) – which you can download here or purchase at your local craft store or bookstore.
These also use a Styrofoam insert to help give it the sphere shape along with basic amigurimi techniques. They can be worked up in an afternoon and will provide hours of giggly fun.
