FO Friday: Teacher gifts

I had hoped to have my Hitchhiker finished for todays post, but it wasn't meant to be. I do, however, have a couple of other FO's for you.

First up is Totoro. I made this as a gift for one of my big girls teachers


all ready to go to his new owner
I'll get a better pic in the morning before he goes to his new home, but for now here is Totoro #crochet #amigurumi

My second finished item isn't yarn based, but I'm sure you'll appreciate it all the same. It's a paintbrush roll for the big ones main teacher. 

One paint brush roll for Rheya's crafty teacher

I thought the ruler ribbon was very fitting for a teacher. 

And rolled up #sewing #teacher #gifts

WIP Wednesday: Hitchhiker

Have I ever mentioned that I'm a slow knitter? Well I think my WIP is proof of that...yes I'm still working on the Hitchhiker.

It goes everywhere with me, the hairdressers, on the school run, shopping, Friday nights with my friends...everywhere. It doesn't always make it out of my bag though.

I've finished Totoro, but will save that for Friday ;)

WIP Wednesday: Getting there

Late to the party, but hey, at least I made it this week. 

I'm going full steam ahead on the Totoro I'm making for one of my daughters teachers. I realised yesterday that they break up next week so I had a bit of a panic crochet session. 


I'm still stealing the odd minute or two here and there to do some of my Hitchhiker scarf. I love how easy the pattern is. 

Sorry for the short post, the man of the house has coerced me into doing the Power 90 programme with him...this could very well be my last

WIP Wednesday: Totoro

Is it Wednesday again? The days just seem to be wizzing by at the moment and I'm not getting much crafting done :sad face:

On the bright side I feel useful again, something that's been lacking for a few months. My eldests school has needed quite a bit of help recently and I've enjoyed being the one that could offer that help, maybe I need a job haha.

On the crafting side of things, I started making Totoro for one of my daughter's teachers. If you recall I made her a Jiji cat for Christmas because she's a Ghibli fan...well this time she's getting Totoro :D I just hope I can get it finished in time!

Wip Wednesday: blog post coming up!

I need to make 2 more gifts after this. One for her main teacher who also likes to craft, but I can't for the life of me remember if she told me what kind of crafting she did....the other teacher hasn't given me any clues as to what she might like.
