Crochet Greg - Diary of a wimpy kid

I love the books 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid', so when I saw an online tutorial showing you how to attempt to make a crochet 'Greg' the main character I thought I really must try this.

I enjoyed making this project and kept it a secret from my family until I had completed it. The online instructions didn't tell you how to make it all and I had to make up some of it myself. I used pipe cleaners for inside so that you can move his arms about and make him flexible.

Here is the first link that I used to make this character:

Hand-Designed Card

hand designed card

I made this card for my lovely Islamic Class Teacher. It was a 'Thank You' Card to say thanks for all her hard work and time that she puts in for her students. I have learnt a lot by attending her classes.

I made this with white card and used a black pen for the design on the card. I made a swirling design for the edges, which I quiet like doing in my artwork.

Crochet Doily

I made my first crochet 'Doily' I didn't follow any pattern, I just made it up as I went along! This was a gift for my grandmother in Algeria.

After I had finished crocheting the doily I wet it and pinned it to make the shape a bit more neater. The photo below shows it when I pinned it on some spare foam we had in the house which worked great.
