Molly's crocheted garden

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It started out as Molly's, but her little brother Link loves the garden creatures and moving them around just as much as she does. Sometimes when I'm making something for my kids, they don't use and enjoy it the way I had originally envisioned and hoped. I'm thrilled that in this case they have both exceeded my hopes and have found real pleasure in it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I looked up free patterns on the net for a few of the bugs, but some of them use such basic shapes, for example the spider, lady bugs and snake, that it is not at all difficult to come up with your own design.

What you will need

  • Quilting cottons
  • thread
  • batting
  • Velcro spots
  • small amounts of acrylic yarn in various colours
  • polyfill and plastic toy eyes.

Q&A with Sarah Becker

Donna N. asked:
This is a really cute wall hanging. I love brights, and your creative use of snail trail blocks, etc. is brilliant! Love it, love it, love it! I don't have children, but I'd love to make one of these for my quilt studio.
Sarah Becker answered:
Thank you Donna! Your own cheery garden for your studio is a great idea! It is a fun, quick and relaxed project. Love to see a pic if you do make it :)
