Recently I donâ€™t have a lot of time to do crafts. Amigurumi is still the best choice for me. Itâ€™s quick and thereâ€™s no need to be perfect in following the pattern. It also donâ€™t need huge amount of yarn. I can use my extra yarns and when I donâ€™t have the instructed color I can always replace it with what I have in my stash.
I made the penguin with the pattern from Lion Brand website. I used some acrylic yarn that I bought from local market here in Chiang Mai.
For making the koala, I got the pattern from here. I made this in few hours while watching tv series. This is even faster than the penguin since I used bigger yarn for the koala. In fact, making the koala is the fastest one so far.
Another project that I did last week is quilting. After almost a year, I finally made a cover for my sewing machine. I bought the walking foot several months a go, but I have no chance to use it until this month.
For a few months Elvira (the sewing machine store) have various programs. I only can come there once a week because of my work, and lucky me last week the program was making the sewing machine cover. I started at 9 am and at 5 pm it was almost finished. The teachers there are always helpful. They helped me to sew the hard part. I donâ€™t think I can finish it in a day if I have to make it all by myself. I need more practice with my sewing machine.
