Would the real Porky please stand up?

The real Porky is way cuter by far, but I think I did an ok job for my first knitted guinea pig. I hope lil' sis approves! It's for her Bday. I used a pattern that I bought from Greenjelly, although I modified it quite a bit as I wanted to make it look more like the real guy. I'm going to make a few more for sure- one following the pattern to a T. A few with my own techniques... My whole family really likes Porky, so I might get some more requests :)

Also wanted to share the Jentelus blog with you. She featured me on her blog today- Thank you!

Back from the Holiday break

Happy New Year everyone! I almost crafted every day of Christmas break with my little sister mainly, but even some of my other family members joined :) I had a lot of fun and absolutely loved spending time with my little sister! Christmas Eve she told me "You make Christmas special!" and when I left she said "I enjoyed every minute with you." How could that not have been the best Christmas.Anyway, just wanted to share some pics. I also made another Mushroom right before the New Year ended. I went to the fabric store and told Karolin she could pick two fabrics and I would make her a custom mushroom and I loved the results.

Here is Pocky the Mushroom

Sprouted: December 28th
Favorite Color: hot pink
Favorite Drink: Fanta
