Mandrake Amigurumi - for all the Harry Potter lovers out there!!

I admit to being a bit of a Harry Potter geek and I've been putting together some projects to share with the you....

I have found so many inspiring ideas on Pinterest and it came down to two particular projects this week that I'm sharing now that they are completed:

I found this awesome "Mandrake" pattern from Kristen in her "Miles of Crochet" Etsy shop that I had to try..... here it is:

 The pattern was so easy to follow and every Harry Potter fan out there knows that there's no such thing as a "Happy" Mandrake plant!!

Next comes the "Harry Potter Throw Pillow" that now sits upon my bed :).....

Making these projects helps pass the time as I count down the days to my next visit to the Harry Potter Wizarding World at Universal Studios in Florida......I am so looking forward to seeing the new Diagon Alley...Yay!!!!

Thanks for visiting and I'll be back with more............

Star Wars Towels & Magnets Set...and I have been a Bad Blogger...Im so ashamed :(

I have been so terrible about posting my recent projects since November....in my defense, I have recently been hired at my local Michael's store as their Jewelry Instructor and (beginning in February) the Crochet and Knitting teacher as well. I am so thrilled to be able to teach there and I've been busy working on the certifications from the Craft Yarn Council. So hopefully, I can be excused for taking such a long break between posts since I have truly been a busy bee trying to get everything done on time!

That being said, I have made so many projects in the past month and then turned around and gave them away as gifts for Christmas before taking pictures of them all. So here are pics of one of the gift sets I made for my awesome, Star Wars-loving sister-in-law......

Thanks for checking this out and I'll be back soon (I mean it this time) to update on more projects completed and in the making!!

Till next time,
