Bear Scarf Progress #2

Photo only post!

Bear Scarf Progress

A bear! Kind of. This is currently a sample bear head. Ears haven't been made yet, so his two other legs + doodle are there to represent them. He's meant to resemble a mascot, that's why his eyes and mouth are different.

Tonari no Totoro

I made cookies.
Completely unrelated to CtF.
But I just want to show them off.

Hats, Pompoms, and Bows

Recall that silly hat I tried to make? Here it is. It looks like a tea cup! I blame my laziness since I triple and double crocheted to make the stitches bigger.

For some reason, the top caved in, I have no idea why. Apparently I can't make a flat circle. That, or it needs support on the inside.

Photo Frame

I saw something like this somewhere and forgot to download the pattern. But I wanted to make it anyway, and last night seemed like a good time to do it! Because I didn't do the math, I ended up with either one or two few stitches, leaving a gap between scallops The ribbon and pearls are there to hide this flaw. That aside, I think it turned out quite nicely.

I just wish I had more printed photos. I want to make more and put a purikura pictures in them.

Purple PomPom

Had a go at making a really full pompom. I gotta say, I really like cutting them to shape, but I couldn't get a perfect ball. But over all, I think it still looks cute. At some point it looked a little like a heart, but when I tried to refine it into a heart shape it didn't work out...

I have one.

So, if you're interested in little tidbits aside from usual posts, go ahead and follow it.
Also, I now have a name for the Mascot!

This is Catsby! First name is still being thought of, but so far, this is what he looks like.
