~ quirky and unexpected ~
I love your popcorn earflap hat. Will you be offering the pattern soon? OR can I purchase it somewhere?Great hat! I love the colors also.
That's so cute. It looks like something for a cold day.
Wow - that is a great hat! And just in time for the cold snap we are having! You made me laugh at the thought of wrapping your kids in a sheet to act as a model :)
Its a hat fit for a Queen!!!!
I've just started crocheting and have already learned several things from your blog (no-join fabric strips, center pull yarn ball...) and figured if anyone can answer this question it is you. I just made my first amigurumi teddy bear and am wondering about stuffing. I'd rather recycle than buy stuffing (and if I have to buy I want to use natural fibers not poly-fill). What is a good recycled stuffing? Is there a way to use fabric strips or something similar?
Lisa, Jonnine and Twigwoman ... Thank you!Marlene... Thank you. The designer is Leslie Nelle-Urinyi from Wool Mountain Studios. Pattern is available for sale hereStessy Testa... I've yet to find a recycled stuffing which I'm really happy with. I've tried re-using the filling from cushions and pillows, but found the 'fluff' to be too irregularly shaped, and some have had almost a fibre-glassy kind of consistency to it (if that makes sense). If stuffing fabric pieces, I'm happy to use yarn ends, but I worry that they will pull through the holes in knitted/crocheted fabric too easily. I imagine that fabric strips would be too dense and not flexible enough. I still use poly-fill for my toys. You could perhaps use wool rovings? I really haven't researched that avenue at all. If you have any success with alternatives, I would love to hear about it!
