Oh Deer... my creative space

This little crochet project has taken me quite some time...my crocheting time is very limited of late

A little deer (which is actually much bigger than it looks).

I made if from this amazing Amigurumi book I borrowed from the library.


I saw the deer, fell in love, rushed out to buy all the wool and bits and pieces... sat down to start it and realised it was an ADVANCED pattern...eek!! (I am still a novice crocheter!)

But my perseverance paid off and now it is completed.... the amigurumi was the easy part...putting it together with a crazy kitten was the tough part!!!

Joining in the with fabulously talented people over at Our Creative Spaces..

This deer is very dear! No kidding, if you are a novice crocheter, it is hard to believe because this looks difficult. New to your blog and I love it!

As someone who has been crocheting a week, I know just how fantastic and out of my league that looks! Well done you!

Leonie is looks amazing! I have that book, bought mainly because of that pattern, but I haven't made it yet. I think you've inspired me to get going and make it, yours looks so fantastic!

Oh my goodness, he is adorable! I don't think you can call yourself a novice any longer!! And you've reminded me that I haven't picked up a hook in a while...!

I'm going to go burrow that book too now. I have seen it at my library so many times but never opened it, but I love your little dear and we have a soft toy girl deer for little princess so I think she needs a mate. Your crochet looks fab too well done!! xxx

Ady said...

Sooo cute!! You did really well.

Amy said...

Nawww that is just way to cute! I really really need to work on my crochet skills so I can have a small chance of making one.

I agree with Ange. I don't think you can call yourself a novice any more!

Veronica said...
