Made It #12 (bunnymug, dr Seuss Cat)

~ I love Pinterest and would like to make one thing every week that I find on Pinterest. Since I have lots of pins (that, until now, I've just pinned and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins on my boards. It can be anything, from cooking to crochet and from sewing to paper crafts. Just small projects that don't take weeks to make ~ 

Last week I told you about the Haasje look-a-like mug cozy I planned to make for Easter. Haasje, our Flemish Giant is my youngest daughter's bunny, so of course she wanted the mug cozy. I had to make it brown, though, just like Haasje.


 ~*~

My oldest daughter has a cat, Dolly (yes, named after Dolly Parton, I'm a fan) and after making the bunny mug cozy above for my youngest, I remembered just in time a crochet cat I had pinned a while ago, because she really wants it. It's from Dr Seuss (pattern here).


See you next week, together with the cat!

The Easter Bunny

I don't know how's the weather in your part of the world, but here in the western corner of Europe, it's pretty cold, so the Easter Bunny still has to wear a shawl and mittens around here. But it looks cute on him, don't you think?
 


The pattern I found on Amigurumi Today.

Thanks, Linda and Jessica!

Wanted for Spring/Summer

Since the beginning of this year I stopped with featuring clothes each that I would really like to have in 'Wanted' each week, because after five years most things I posted looked like something I had posted before. But of course no longer having the Wanted posts on my blog, doesn't mean there's nothing I want anymore. Of course not. There are lots of things I want! Like those things for example.

Little Terrarium

The other day I was in two stores. One was a house decoration store, where I found the tiniest little plant ever, the other one was an ordinary supermarket, where I bought a jar of green peas and carrots, a vegetable combination my husband likes a lot (and I don't). I cooked the vegetables, rinsed the jar, put a layer of dirt and egg shells in the jar and planted the little plant in it. Tadah! Little terrarium!

Made It! #11

~ I love Pinterest and would like to make one thing every week that I find on Pinterest. Since I have lots of pins (that, until now, I've just pinned and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins on my boards. It can be anything, from cooking to crochet and from sewing to paper crafts. Just small projects that don't take weeks to make ~ 

As told last week I would make stone cacti for above the wash basin in one of the bathrooms. Because the real stuff expires after a couple of weeks in my house, making stone cacti seemed a excellent idea. Except I couldn't find stones that looked like cacti. So in the end I bought polymer clay and made cacti out of that, drew spines on it and attached little white flowers.

There are people who love Easter bunnies and there are people who love a bunny every day of the year. Like me, *cough*. The mug beneath you can make for Easter, but you can also use the mug for the rest of the year. And although I love a bunny, I'm a grown up, so this one's for my daughter. Pinterest project for next week.



Here's the link to the pattern, in case you want one, too. 

And this is the reason I like bunnies: my handsome friend Haasje (meaning Little Hare), the Flemish Giant (you're right, I take every opportunity to show him to the public).
