There are times I'm very glad when I get bored. Last week I needed to do something. SO I looked through my downloads for my Ultimate DIY bundle and made myself an elephant. The Lucky Elephant by Gingercake patterns. Now I am almost a purist I LOVE funky friends factory patterns so I'm very biased towards them, they are always so very clear. But I didn't mind how she set out her patterns. Though you can tell that she has come from clothes sewing not quilting because she uses 5/8" seams not 1/4" seams.
Though I'm not running out to make another elephant tomorrow as I personally don't like the pillow design much... But I am imagining what it would look like as a pretty awesome pillow for the couch if I made it a lot bigger and I can see potential. As I said I prefer the slightly fancier designs from Funky Friends.
I've also been working on some random crochet. Being rained in made me want to start something new so I tried out a monster granny square. This pattern is by REPEAT CRAFTER ME (check out her stuff if you haven't seen it before) It's pretty awesome what she does.
