  1. Brenda, those little "heads" on above picture there is no worry about their weight to be able to wobble LOL.
  2. That is NOT my picture! I just thought it was a good & easy idea for children gifts & donations. There is no pattern. As you can see those heads are made in a single layer (like appliques) instead of a stuffed toy on top. Even a flower or butterfly will work. Lady posted that on FB. I think her name was Windy. IF posting that picture is against the rules here I can delete that. Here is what she says: My Unique snuggle blankets No stuffing, No Buttons etcVariety of colours Made for the Primrose Hospice & Hospital❣️
  3. Welcome back! Krys
  4. I like that "ripple blanket" Thanks:) Krys
  5. "Boogying pup" Just scroll down & click on arrow for video.
  6. I might use that technique on a blanket I am planning to make for my daughter. That blanket will be made out of 5" or 6" wide stripes (not sure yet how wide they will be). I will try that joining technique first on a "swatch" or something..before I use that on that blanket. Happy crocheting:)
  7. Look at this clever technique!:) une vidéo. Using a hook without a handle makes it easier. Krys

  9. Thanks:)
  10. Thank You:) Krys
  11. "Baby Claudia the Cloud" - 8" in diam. I made that little pillow/toy for my daughters dog Frank. Their toys always need to have a name LOL. Here are some pictures of Claudia-pillow/toy in making. I always sew separate inserts to hold that stuffing. Frank LOVES crochet toys & blankets made with Bernat Blanket Yarn. That yarn feels so soft, fluffy and is thick. Feels like thick Chenille. While ago I made for him a Smiley Face Pillow/toy. Frank really loves that & carry that around with him. Or he will lie down and use that as a pillow under his snout (face). Krys
  12. That blanket is beautiful! Krys
