Welcome to the crochet jungle that is...
it's been a wild and crazy adventure creating these new friends.
This elephant was actually the last one of the group to be finished.
These animals are an extra step beyond my crochet monsters.
The monkey was actually my first creation to this group.
I wanted to make him a stuffed animal version
of my watercolor monkey I usually paint.
He even has a removable banana.
The lion was sooo fun to make!! It took awhile to figure out
exactly how I wanted him to look but I think he turned out kinda sweet.
As I was making the giraffe I realized I needed to make the little brown things on the top of its head... by its ears.
As I thought about it, I wondered what they were called? I asked my husband what he thought they were called and he said he didn't know but they should be called
I'll give you 20 points if you know what they are called ... without looking it up on google!!
Here is the answer : They are called Ossicones
And I love this little piggy my husband lovingly named him
What's a pig without a curly tail?
My husband also likes Otters and his old nickname used to be "Scotter"
Nothing like a squishy Penguin!!
I have loved learning how to make all these fun animals and I really wish I had created patterns to go with them. Maybe the next one I make I will do a tutorial on and include a pattern. :)
Anyone interested in that?
Besides these guys love having new friends :)
