I recently did a swap on Craftster.org, and the theme was “Craft a Favorite Animal.” Meaning I gave my partner my top 3 favorite animals for her to craft for me, and she gave me her top 3 for me to craft for her. Her top three were 1) Skunks, 2) Dragonflies, and 3) Bats. So this is what I made for her:
So for Skunks we have a woodburning I did on a plaque:
Here is a detail shot:
And here is a felted skunk, with a Dragonfly included on the schnozzle:
And a detailed closeup:
The lady I made them for has a pet skunk who is mostly white with brown patches, hence the way the skunks I crafted look :)
And for Dragonlflies, I did the felted one on the nose above and also this ornament, which was a pretty simple thing to make:
And finally, for a bat, I knitted a stuffed critter she had on her wist:
The pattern for the bat can be found here.
Thats it for today. I have been furiously knitting away for the holidays!
