Hey y’all! Hows your week going?
It’s crazy here.
This little crochet project was inspired by Jodie Carlton of RicRacs enamel pin. (I still haven’t bought myself one, I should get onto that!) I’ve been wanting to make one for a while now, so when our copy of “Throw Throw Burrito” came in the mail I was super enthused to make more things I can throw around the house! ( that sentence is such a random train of thought, but that’s legit how this came into existence!)
It’s just one loan “f bomb” at the moment, but I plan on there being a whole basket of them on the kitchen table (maybe two baskets, one for the coffee table too?!) I’m sure we can come up with some kind of game to go with them!
The pattern is pretty simple to figure out, some day I will try and write it up properly, but for now, here’s an explanation on how I made it.
I started by crocheting a black ball shape. I stopped two increased before finishing a whole ball and changed to grey yarn. I stuffed it about here. I crochet up three rows, before decreasing again to close the top. The fuse was several chains and then single crochet along to give it some body, with a couple of sparkly threads knotted to the top. The “F” was made by crocheting onto the side of the ball.
And to finish off, I’ll leave you with some things I’ve recently tie-dyed.
oh, and I picked up a couple of boxes of old kimono scraps. Some of it will be silk, and anything white I will try and dye!
Have a tops week!
