Wool felting small things is GREAT STRESS RELIEF. Knit for half an hour to relax, then pound the shit out of it in the sink in blazing hot water.
I used this hexagon coaster pattern with just some plain gray wool I had lying around, to try it out. It’s blocked and drying now (in the last pic), and since it came out so nice I’ll try this again with some cooler yarn the next time I want to beat up some wool.
Photo Finish and Hoity Toity as PONY SQUIDS. These were commissioned by InkyNotebook. The accessories took a lot of work! D:
Do you know how to knit? If you learn the basics of knitting in the round, increasing, and decreasing, you can knit some radishes! LOOK HOW CUTE:
Here is the pattern.
That way you could still have made some radishes this year, even if you didn’t raise them the traditional way. UuU Or if you’ve sewn before, sew some tiny felt radishes… or needle felted… HM!
AAAHHHH THE FULL SET IS FINALLY DONE!
40+ hours of work to make all of them, of course not counting the original pattern drafting (which took days), designing color schemes and cutie marks, obtaining supplies, etc etc… I’m pretty pleased with how they all came out. :’D
This full set will be for sale at Everfree! Look for my booth in the dealer’s hall. I’ll maybe have some duplicates completed and for sale by then as well, as well as a ~super secret pony squid~ that you’ll have to stop by to see!
HAHAHA WOW this whole design and pattern and everything took only an hour from original idea to completion.
It’s a kabutomushi! AKA, Japanese rhinoceros beetle. I’ve always wanted to raise some but they’re nigh impossible to obtain in the States. U-U So I knit one instead!
While I’m super amazingly happy with how it came out, I still need to tweak the pattern a bit - reverse the knit and purl stitches on the underside so the ridges pop in instead of out, and do the shell embroidery in a darker color because you can hardly see it at all right now.
Otherwise WOW LOOK AT THIS CUTIE. Once I’ve fixed up the knitting pattern, I’ll post it here for free!!
