Sunday Loves – Hello Kitty Ballerina!

Yesterday was my niece’s 3rd birthday. She loves Hello Kitty and all things pink so I just had to make her a Hello Kitty in a pink ballerina dress!

Isn’t she cute?! She’s made from the book ‘Hello Kitty Crochet’ using these (dk) yarns:
White and black (black was used for eyes and whiskers) – King Cole Smooth
Pink – King Cole Bamboo Cotton
And the tutu fabric was bought from ebay. I chose a glittery one to add extra prettiness!
To make the tutu I cut 2 big circles out of the fabric (over big so they could bunch up) and two smaller circles inside. I threaded white thread through and put Kitty in the middle. Pulled it tight and tied a knot, then used one end to sew it on securely. I then trimmed it because it was a bit too big and then I was done!

I made the original Kitty a few months back that I don’t think I’ve shown you yet, I’ll show you sometime next week!

Happy Geek Pride Day!

Happy Geek Pride Day to all fellow geeks out there! *waves* I love all things Superhero, sci-fi, games – and my love for yarn and crochet is definitely geeky!

I’ve been quiet for a little while because last weekend I went to my first superhero convention! I went to The City Of Heroes in Birmingham, and I’ve spent the rest of this week recovering!

There were some amazing guests – here are the autographs we collected:

Have you done anything geeky recently? Who would you most like to meet? (could be anyone, not necessarily from tv!)

Spider Web

The other day I opened the door and almost walked into a giant spider web! (Thankfully there wasn’t a spider actually in it…) I took some photo’s to show you:


Isn’t it big!


I love looking closely at webs, they are amazing!


I actually have a phobia of spiders, but for some reason I am fascinated with their webs! (as long as there isn’t a spider in them… *shivers*) I just think it’s amazing that something can make something so strong and intricate! I had my partner check very carefully for a spider before I went near it though. I like to think it was a small spider who just wanted to make a big web…. Okay, I’m getting a bit worried now, so I’m going to stop writing and think about something else!
