Jellyfishing! Crochet jellyfish bath toysWednesday, July 27, 2016
Another pinterest-inspired project: crocheted jellyfish. #love
I'm really happy with this one.
There are swirls and twirls and loop-de-loops of yarn loveliness.
The free crochet jellyfish pattern is from One Dog Woof, and is worked in amigurumi rounds quite quickly. The tentacles take longest of all but they're very portable and I was making them in the car, in the doctor's waiting room, while the kids were sleeping...
The original pattern was designed to be a bathroom accessory for kids, with the cotton tentacles making an ideal hand-drying towel. I used the rest of my Drops Love You 5 cotton yarn for this project; it is ideal for facecloths, scrubbies, and just about anything that needs to withstand the rough handling of an enthusiastic two-year-old.
I particularly love the jellyfish faces which make me chuckle every time I see them hanging up in our bathroom.
I'm enjoying all of these mini craft projects because they're so portable, and that means that even though the family and the house is whirlwinding around me, I'm able to do a tiny little bit of making time for me.
And making for me means making for us, which Isla adores because let's face it ... there's not much going on here that she doesn't lay claim to. Sweet girl.
