That said, I was going to make a mobile with cloud and rain drop... well, more like water drop. But I don't have anything to hang it with. Then, I started on a Hello Kitty doll, and it just got too many little parts that I got discouraged.
Between travelling for work and stalking eBay for awesome pattern books. I didn't have time to actually make anything.
Soooooooo, I met an awesome lady up in NY, she's practically a soul sister... and while we were hanging out in Chinatown, we found a place that sell this very cute penguin. She disclosed that she likes penguin. The one she picked up has this soft material and it's stuffed with lavender inside.
Since I don't sew and don't have that soft material, the crochet (ami style) will have to do.
Her bday is coming up, so this makes a perfect gift. I got some great advice about using nylon to hold the lavender so it won't fall out. It took some time to stuff, but it worked out pretty good. I would say it is 95% filled w/ lavender. The problem, I think it's that it has now became too strong. Hmm....
Hope she likes it.
