Some of you may remember I shared a link to making a Lego-themed tissue box cover and I simply couldn't resist making one for my oldest grandie who is rather obsessed with Lego.
The tutorial I used came from HERE.
- As a new year starts there's always some discussion surrounding the making of temperature blankets/quilts. THIS is a new take on it that I think would be much more doable.
- If you're a fan of Halloween you might like to have a look at THIS. I should have highlighted it in January so the window for getting those patterns for free is over, but you can get the rest of the year as new releases every month (and the January ones are available for a nominal fee)
- Sometimes I come across something that intrigues me and THIS is one of those things. I don't want to actually DO what she's done but the concept is fascinating.
- After sharing that little bitty hexie project in the my last post, THIS popped up. It just boggles the mind.
Here is your quote for the day..."There are no limits to what you can accomplish when you're supposed to be doing something else"
LOL to the quote!ReplyDelete
Love the Lego tissue box. That is a perfect gift idea. I like the color as well. Have a fun week-end
The color I used for the Lego box was fortunate - my stash had it, and it just happens to be a colour that Lego comes in. Win/win!Delete
Love the tissue box cover. He's going to love it too! That is an interesting alternative to the temperature blanket. Those colors are lovely together. Can't imagine the amount of time that is going into that little pineapple quilt. I wonder how long it took to finish and when.ReplyDelete
I think our grandie will love the Lego theme. Now have to search out appropriate coloured yarn to make another one for our next oldest grandie who is also a Lego fan.Delete
I like the idea of doing a temperature scarf rather than a huge afghan - much more doable I think.
Holy cow, that's cute!ReplyDelete
Shhhhh - don't tell anyone but I'd like one for myself!Delete
Well, that's a fun lego! And I have found that quote to be very true in my life. lolReplyDelete
At least if you step on this Lego you won't hurt yourself (hopefully!).Delete
Oh wow, that is really cool!! I should make one for ds... one day :) xxReplyDelete
It doesn't take long to make - hardest part was sewing the 'buttons' on somewhat evenly.Delete
That is SO cute!ReplyDelete
Just something fun for our grandson...a quick makeDelete
Cute tissue cover. That would have been perfect back in the days my boys loved Lego. I made 4 temperature blankets and never thought of doing a scarf. However, considering the weather fluctuations here mine just might be a bit too colourful. I am actually thinking of doing a precipitation one next year.ReplyDelete
Precipitation - hadn't heard of doing that, but it wouldn't mean as many colour changes. Although, I suppose, if you chose a wider spread of temps it wouldn't mean so many colours.Delete
What a fun finish! Hugs Christine xxReplyDelete
Hopefully our grandie will get a kick out of it.Delete
I'm not one for tissue box covers, but this would certainly be the exception! It turned out great!ReplyDelete
I thought it was kinda cute for a kid's room but I agree, tissue box covers aren't really my thing either.Delete
