All my WIP have been put on hold the past wee while as I work on my heidibears project. I though I’d give you all an update!
I started using the yarn left over from last years CAL, the photo above shows rows 3 and 4 being completed. I do them in bulk, I’m kinda impatient & want to see how this turns out.
All the pieces are being kept in sandwich bags, mostly to keep them together, but also to keep the dog hair off it! I think the bag was originally for trainers or shoes, I got it for 50p in a charity shop. The fact I can see whats in it, without opening it is a huge bonus.
I’ve still to decide if I’m ‘joining as I go’ in row 5. This is a new technique to me. I tried it in the Stylecraft Carousel CAL but couldn’t get the hang of it, so might end up sewing it together.
Well, that’s about all for today. I figure I’ll be ready to make this guy by the end of the next bank holiday. Which is next Monday! It’s definitely the holiday season here in the UK at the moment 🙂
catch up with everyone soon xxx

I’ve never had any luck with ‘join as you go’ either. 😦 I love the colors you’re using – I can’t wait to see it when it’s stitched together!!! 😀
I’ve never tried join as you go, but I really want to have a go because (after sewing in ends) fastening pieces together is my least favourite part of making crochet goodies. They just won’t sit right!
