I made some things for a swap. They are not particularly ground-breaking, but I quite like how they turned out. : ) I claimed Craftster user SciFunk for felted nesting bowls and something else I had yet to determine. Here are the felted bowls:

I used Lamb’s Pride, Lion Wool, and some orange wool (I think Cascade 220?). And another color of Cascade 220. I like making these little bowls. They’re super quick and a great way to use up small bits of wool. Crochet a bowl, throw in the washer and dryer and hit it with some steam and an ironing and you have cute bowls.

After much dithering and pouring over SciFunk’s list, I finally decided what else to make for her. Dog toys was on her list, so I whipped up three rope toys:

I used strips of t-shirt fabric from some left-over sleeves (from the university shirt-quilt I’m making and will show pictures of eventually). Cut off the hem, cut the sleeve open, and cut across for a straight strip. Tie a knot in the top, braid, and tie a knot in the bottom. Voila!

The thicker ones used both sleeves of each shirt (so there were six strips) and the thinner one used one sleeve (three strips). They took about 10 minutes to make all of them and that’s only because the bottom knots in the thicker ones were a little difficult to tie. If my dog actually enjoyed this sort of thing, I’d make some for him, but he doesn’t.

One of my OWS partners recently received what I sent her, so it’s high time I showed it here! I’m pretty pleased with how everything came out. I claimed her for a minion ami (from the movie Despicable Me) and some felted nesting bowls.

I used some acrylic I had kicking around. I didn’t really follow a pattern but I looked at a couple crochet versions and sort of made it up as I went. I think it came out pretty well. The eye is made out of felt cause I didn’t want to crochet a little circle (it would have been too thick). I think he came out pretty cute!

The yarns used for the bowls, all leftovers from other things, are, from outside in, Lion Wool Solid, Berocco Alpaca Ultra, a different color of Lion Wool, and Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride. I crocheted them and chucked them in the washer then steamed/ironed them to smooth out the wrinkles.

My partner (LuckDragon on Craftster) seemed to like what I sent her. : ) I’ve just claimed someone else for a set of nesting bowls, so expect to see them again here soon.
