This past week, I had decided to design two very small items, and they actually turned out pretty cute.
The first I designed was candy. I had just gotten my braces off, and found that I missed having hard candy the most, so I made me some. :)
They were actually really simple to make, I ended up using the Caron Simply Soft yarn, and that made the candy have a cute 'shine' to it. I also added some bows to the ends to give it them that extra touch they needed.
I made the green candy first, but I didn't really like how the wrapper ends had turned out (you can see more photos of my candies on my Flickr account), and so I did a different version with the white. I am planning to make a whole bunch of these and fill up a candy dish with them. I think that would make a cute little center piece for a table. Don't you think?
Finally, last night, I decided to make another turtle. I think that out of all the turtles I have created, this one is my favorite.
I was really lucky to have the butterfly applique that is on her body. I had found 3 them floating around in our craft shed, and so I decided to use one on her. Unfortunatly, I don't think they sell these anymore, or if they do... I wouldn't know where... my mom apparently got them when I was in Pre-school.
