Bulldog Buddies Pattern

Bulldogs6

I have been working on perfecting this pattern since before Christmas and finally have it complete and ready for sale in my Ravelry and Etsy stores!

Originally the pattern included only the antler headband version, but with spring upon us, I decided to add a flower version also!

Fun with Yarn Scraps!

Scraps3.png

So, I really wanted to do something fun with all of my yarn scraps other than dumping them on my cat!

I have a vague memory of seeing someone mix all of their scraps with ModPodge and creating a yarn bowl which looked awesome!  I live in a small downtown apartment so surface space is at a premium, wall space however, is still available!

I mixed a pile of my scraps with a small container of ModPodge and spread the messy mix onto a sheet of wax paper. I then covered the entire surface with plastic wrap (wax paper would work too, but I had run out).  I covered the whole surface with heavy books and left it for a few hours and then removed the plastic.  After leaving it to dry over night, I flipped my creation over, peeled of the wax paper and left it for a few more hours for the back to dry, and here is my finished piece of modern art!

The finished effect is just what I was hoping for and whenever I look at it, I am reminded of various projects I completed using some of the yarns!

I still have an entire bin of scraps left so I will have to come up with some more plans of how to use them, any ideas anyone?
