Crafting Jellyfish

More crochet folks, but at least something new…a jellyfish (well two really!)

I had seen a few around on the net, and when I wanted to make something to say thank you to Cindy (who painted the wonderful watercolour E for me) I decided to have a go at making one. Cindy loves jellyfish, you see.

I found a couple of free patterns, worked out how they were done and then tweaked away and made these. Well, actually, I made the blue one, in a lovely variegated blue cotton from Sugar & Creme. My daughter, who seems to love anything I make (she is the one who wanted all of the owls I made) requested a jellyfish too. So a couple of hours later and the pink one was made, with its own variations.

It has been school holidays here so I haven’t been doing much art or craft, just sneaking bits and pieces where I could in between play dates and outings and family visiting. Back to school today so I can get back to work again!
