It's very rare you'll find me sitting doing nothing, even watching the tv I have to be doing something else so this was the perfect project. I was so surprised at how quick they came together.
I love this colour green. Don't you think it looks just like grass?
I washed some dishes with the purple one today and it was perfect but the green ones wash better.
They lather up more.
I'm going to be making loads more of these once I get some free time. They had some beautiful colours in the shop. The wool I used for the grassy ones is 100% Polyester. I'm not sure what the purple one is as I already had it at home and had thrown away the label.
For the round one I used the tutorial HERE. Where with bag patterns I follow them and rarely change them, crochet is a different matter. I don't use the wool suggested or the crochet hook size so when I made mine I only needed to make 5 or 6 rounds and the beauty of this green grass wool is that all mistakes are well disguised. For the purple one I used this tutorial HERE, again I didn't use the hook or wool suggested but just by chance it came out the size I wanted using the tutorial exactly as it was written except I did two rounds around the four edges instead of once.
Ok, back to sewing again.
