As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

Earlier I mentioned I was working on a crochet project... here it is!
They turned out better than I expected, alhumduliLlah and I had a blast making them.
I'm still not sure whether to sell them or keep them for my niece.


I absolutely LOVE mixed medium (only realized that recently). The prayer mats are made with fabric, paint, and yarn.



This is how big they actually are. Little Fatimah holding them.




Believe it or not, I got some direction from this book: Creepy Cute Crochet.
Book review:



It a wonderful book!
There is a lot a really love about it:
- the 'creatures' are very cute
- there is actually a variety to make, from ninjas and robots, to skeletons and zombies
- they all pretty much use the same basic (head, body) pattern - so you have lots of room to come up with your own creations
- there is both a written pattern and an illustrated pattern
- they are unique - lots of amigurumi style creatures out there, but I personally haven't come across any like these

What YOU might not like:
-  it's NOT for a beginner (this is mentioned in the book), unless you like the challenge 
- I wouldn't consider myself a beginner, but even I made up a few things on the way (at least I think I did..haha)
- it's not for very young children IF you decide to use the eyes suggested in the book (safety eyes or felt eyes would be a better option)
