My St. Patrick's Day Projects

The pictures of the current projects are at least on the camera and now merely need to be moved to the computer for uploading. Digital photography and I are at our infancy stages. At some point, I want the point and click camera. DH wanted the launch the space shuttle version so that is what we purchased. Therefore, I am continuing to use borrowed photographs.

I have fallen in love with Annie's Attic's Fun Time Bath Mitts. I believe it is currently on clearance the website. I made St. Patrick’s Day Bears for my niece and nephew that will be mailed today. I have an Easter Bunny and Easter Duck to send them next month along with other projects I will post about later. I love the fact the patterns are easy and fun to make and have a practical use when they are finished. I know the niece and nephew will love the puppets and Mom will love the fact that it encourages them to get clean in the tub. I am already considering how to incorporate the patterns into holiday themes. The patterns use the dishcloth yarn so I have been hitting the local craft sales at Michaels and AC Moore that have been competing to keep the price close to $1.25 a skein.

I also crocheted St. Patrick’s Day outfits for the nieces’ Barbie dolls. I have been hunting for vintage and current patterns that utilize sports yarn, as I am nowhere near able to crochet with thread at this point. I keep practicing, but my efforts have not achieved success at this point. I finished off the outfits with St. Patrick’s top hats found at Michaels.

For the baby in the crowd, I used a rattle pattern found in Amigurumi Two! My donut shape needs some work. I hope to improve my style as I found a free stackable pattern on Joann Fabrics I want to complete by Christmas. It looks like the plastic round ring stackable toy, but done in crochet. It is nice to have goals.
