Down by the sea

I must have a “thing” for the sea lately, as I have been leaning towards creatures of the sea and have had so much fun with patterns from Abby Glassenburg and others.

First the mermaids and the little fishes with patterns from at whileshenaps.com

Here are some pics, but shhhh, don’t tell anyone, as they are mostly Christmas gifts for young and not so young friends!

Down by my own “sea” in my backyard, with my new friends

And today I discovered the perfect friend to accompany these, a little seahorse from Lia’s Crafty Journey’s blog.

I used some minky I had left over from a baby blanket and created this little guy. I used safety eyes instead of felt. There will be many more of these to come.

Thanks Lia!

Then along came a sweet friend: I made him out of a listening grey stretchy bit I had in my stash left over from who-knows-what and guess what?  I love him!  He looks like he has just jumped right out of the surf.

Then I wondered what would happened if I introduced them to one another. So far so good. They are observant, anyway.
