One of many issues that I’ve with bollard covers is that I are usually prompted to make them due to seasonal festivities. Because of this within the gaps between such occasions, I’m at a little bit of a loss about what to place out… usually resorting to the floral ones or the Welsh dragon. I’m very reluctant to make one thing for a one-off occasion as a result of I’ll by no means have the chance to make use of it once more, so my nod to the coronation concerned an oddment of gold yarn…
As to extra non-seasonal topics, what might be extra timeless and fashionable than dinosaurs? And by full coincidence this week accommodates Worldwide Dinosaur Day (apparently). Mr Snail determined to hitch in with the enjoyable, however listed here are my two… one on a bollard and one guarding the sweeties on the counter… not shocking they haven’t wanted replenishing not too long ago! Each dinosaurs had been made out of scrap yarn, as was the bollard cowl and it’s leafy decorations. There’s by no means a scarcity of scrap yarn within the store, as baggage of it appear to reach on a weekly foundation… I simply must discover a use for all that eyelash yarn that individuals purchase and by no means make something from!
The patterns for each the Raptor and the Triceratops are from Kelly of Little Inexperienced Bear; the crown, bollard cowl and leaves are all out of my very own head!
