Anyway, one day I was out for a walk with an elderly and we went to a shopping mall. We found a lot of interesting things as you can see.
Meet the the hens and the chickens!
Actually, these are not for sale. They are only models. If one is interested, the shop sells materials and instructions how to do these figures.
I thought of my mother-in-law who is very fond of these creatures, so I bought materials for Ms.
Santa. I thought that I can try to make this one as a gift to the mother of my husband for Christmas. Since I don't know how long it will take me to knit Ms. Santa, I started at once so that it would be finished before Christmas.
So these are some of the different parts before I crotheted the sweater and the laces. After that I washed the pieces in the washing machine so that it would shrink according to the instruction.
After a week, I have now a finished product:) My knitted Ms. Santa is a litlle bit chubby than the original, but I was satisfied with what I did. I hope my mother-in-law will like it.
Anyway, I was so inspired making stuff toys, so I made some more. Meet my doggies.
I crocheted the different parts before I sewed them together.
So this is Pluto
This is Estella. The elderly gave them the names:)
Mother and the puppy.
Right now, I am making a kangaroo. You will meet her soon:)
