Thing 166

This week is Fulfilled Promises Week. The week in which I look back to all the crafty promises I made and actually fulfil them.

This means I need to make the amigurumi animals I promised Martina’s friends back in February. Let me just say, the weather is too good for crochet. I can sew the whole year round but yarn crafts belong to the months with an r. Unfortunately, I promised to have the animals done before the end of the school year.

It would have made sense to finish the horse that I started a couple of weeks ago. However, I’m not enjoying that horse and wasn’t sure I’d be able to get it all done today, which would have left me irritated and without a Thing to post about.

So I made a sheep.

I found a super cute pattern on Etsy, but at €2.64 it was out of my budget. I’m trying to keep under €200 until the end of the month and I couldn’t find any patterns for under 38 cents. Then I found this free pattern that came close to what I was looking for.




Black doesn’t photograph well so the picture does not do justice to the cuteness of his face. I followed the pattern except for the feet. The pattern calls for stringy little feet but I wanted solid ones.

Baaaaaa. Next up, horse or panda. Which is the lesser of two evils? I can’t decide.
