And the last mini-mal this month......... a mini-turkey!

A bit random I know but hopefully all will be revealed in time!

We've made it to the last day of the month!... If you'd have asked me three weeks ago if I was going to get this far I would have thought it highly unlikely.   I was really struggling to come up with ideas for the next day's project but I got through and am now full of ideas for projects  to tackle over the next few weeks (that was the whole aim for this project so I'm really glad it has worked out).   Hopefully I can keep myself motivated enough to get them made!

A really BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has followed my adventures this month, looking at the blog stats and seeing that people are actually looking at my blog has really encouraged me to keep the momentum going - so thank you again!

And now to the last mini-mal of the month.....



Please come back soon as I am thinking of writing up some of the patterns for the mini-mals from this month; please let me know if there are any in particular that you are interested in.

And, I have enjoyed creating these mini creatures, objects and designs so much that I will keep it going as a regular feature on my blog.


Mini-pig

This is the penultimate mini-mal in my months challenge - I really can't believe the February is nearly over!   And so I thought for the last two mini-mals I would actually create animals as there haven't been too many of them along the way.   So here is the first one - a mini-pig:



It wasn't until he was nearly finished that he actually started looking like a pig - I thought many times I would have to start again but I'm very pleased with the finished mini-mal - he's actually rather cute!

Mini-house

And to go with the mini-tree - a mini-house!



I have visions of these together at some point with a mini-garden.

Mini-tree

I thought I would move away from the space theme now and move onto a more nature orientated subject.   As I have previously mentioned I am in the process of designing a mobile for my nephew so some of this week's mini-mals may end up featuring!

So, without further ado, here is the next mini-mal - a mini-tree!:

Mini-star

Today I thought I would continue the space theme of the end of last week with a mini-star:


I have adapted the pattern that I usually use for Christmas decorations to make a super-mini version.

See you tomorrow!  :)

Mini-robot and Mini-Rocket

I then went onto a space theme as my sister would like a mobile for her son.   I thought maybe rockets and robots would be a good place to start so here are my first attempts of characters for the mobile:



I will post updates on how the mobile is progressing in future installments.   Hope you have a good weekend, see you next week for more mini-mals.  xx

Mini-Jellyfish

Sorry, I have got a little behind with the posts but I have been making a new mini-mal everyday this week!  The first of these is the mini-jellyfish:


This tested my very poor crocheting skills for the tentacles but I am very pleased with the outcome.   I think I may be making more of these in the future!
