It was terrible to wake up to the news about the earthquake and tsunamis in Japan this morning. I've poked around Etsy and Ravelry for relief stuff, but there's not much popping up just yet---if any of you hear of crafty relief efforts, please let me know. I'm itchy to do something to help.
One thing I love about Swap-Bot is that it gets me to make stuff I'd never make otherwise. Like tentacow.
tentacat in my blogger avatar, tentacow was created for a swap for which you send your partner a ridiculous item. My partner collects plushie cows, thus, tentacow. I'd never considered making an amigurumi cow before, so I did a quick google search to get an idea of what shapes were involved.
this super-simple pattern. I want to make a whole army of them, but I'm going to try not to unless I get some kind of amazing idea to utilize said bunny-army.
Go check out Fibers on Friday (which is where I found the bunny pattern above, actually), Finished Object Friday, and Fiber Arts Friday for more crafty goodness.
