A couple weeks ago I showed you a little sneek peak of something I made for Liz.
Now that we have exchanged gifts I can show you what that was, it was actually two little manatees!! Liz loves manatees, we swam with them a few years ago in Florida so I can see why she would. They're pretty darn cute!
Meet Manny and Mary Jo Manatee.
I made Manny (the darker grey one) with a hook one size larger than Mary Jo just so he could be a little bigger. Then I added a little bow on Mary Jo so you would know she's a girl!
I got the pattern from NeedleNoodles. It was a quick pattern and very easy to follow.
Liz also likes to wear those earwarmer/headband things. She has started to like certain shades of yellow too so when I saw someone made one of these on Craftster I decided I wanted to make one for her! Turns out I look pretty cute in it too, so I might make myself one (not in yellow though!)
I found this pattern from JTEastCoast. It worked up ridiculously fast, it says to make 3 flowers but there was no way to fit 3 on there! (I could have if I used a smaller hook but pssh, I like it with just two.) I didn't take a picture of the button holding it together in the back but it was so pretty, silvery with flowers and vines.
I'm officially addicted to crocheting!!
