sew awesome: The Princess

Being blessed with friends the way I am, I guess it’s no surprise that I have royalty on my side!  This sewhooked Sew Awesome award is looong overdue and well deserved.

When I put the call out for for help with blankets for Linus, The Princess, aka Amber of Amber’s Originals, not only made and donated blankets to The Linus Connection, my favorite charity, she designed this brand new pattern just for Linus!

And then she posted it for everyone to share…for free.

The Texas Brick Blanket, from Amber’s Originals

I’ve been working on my very own version of this awesome blanket.  The technique is different than anything I’ve ever crocheted and I just love the way it’s turning out!

sew awesome: Baby Mandrake Root

Harry Potter crafts, how do I love thee?

Lots.  Lots and lots and lots!

Yes, this is second HP craft to received the sewhooked Sew Awesome award and the third HP craft I’ve posted about in a week.  I can’t help it, HP crafts, it’s how I roll.

That said, today’s Sew Awesome Craft award goes to caitirin’s crochet Baby Mandrake Root.  OMG, is this the cutest little thing ever?


caitirin made this cute little guy (hard to believe he could knock you out with one tiny wail!) for the ravelry HPKCHC Herbology Class May 2009.  Here he is on ravelry.  He’s in my queue, add him to yours:   !

Isn’t he fantastic?

Here’s my version!

Cover your ears, it’s an angry, screaming baby mandrake!
