Meet Kate and Ashley


Hi Everyone! I'm Kate! I'm Ashley! LOL
Ok, so you all need to have mercy on me. This is the first crochet pattern I've done that make something 3 dimentional. It was a bit daunting and there were places that I had to rip out more than once but overall it came out quite good, I think. The hardest part is actually sewing all the bits together without making it look like a duck version of Frankenstein.
As you can see, some parts are a little strange but I like to say that Ashley just had a few collagen injections. :-)
My inspiration came from Tamara's wonderful blog. She does marvelous things with yarn, you gotta check her out sometime. Just don't compare her lovely ducks with mine. lol Remember I'm new and you gotta be nice. :-)
Oh! By the way, if you'd like to make this pattern, you can find it for free here
OK, back to cards!

They came out good! I'm not just saying that to be nice! Yu are way too critical, no one would know these were your first! They are very cute! I think they are keepers. (Until the next thousand and you find ones you like better.) You need to make one for every duck you have and then 25 more for the new ones! You're up for it. I saw on somebody's site, crocheted eggs in a carton. They would represent your babies!

So very cute, I love them and will pop over for the pattern. I always go for the more 'individual' looking soft toy myself...I have a large collection of 'individual' teddies. When pea was little I made her a fur fabric panda...I cut out two left legs....and no fabric left. I used both legs, and as the one was up in the air I made it a tutu and called it a balletrina lol. Happy accidents lol. Hugs lin

Tine said...

Well done Dorcas. They are adorable.

KristensCreations said...

These are way too cute! Great job Dorcas. You are a truly talented crafter. You do well at everything. I tend to skip around in my crafting too. I'll do something until I can't stand it anymore then go to something else. I like the variety you have on your blog. Very inspiring and refreshing.
XoXo!

Anita said...

Awww, Dorcas, these are as cute as can be.

Annika said...

awwwww...how adorable!! Should definitely try, kids would love these!! And I found a collection of crocheting needles from the beginning of last century while sorting through Mom's stuff which are now in a little wooden box in my craft room...would be a pity just to leave them there..
