The exciting thing Gina & the rest of the design team have alluded to all week is that we are going to be doing a mid-month blog hop each month to inspire you!!
This month, I am using Zoo Animals, illustrated by Asela Hopkins. I hadn’t used the little Zebra yet, but I sure love him. I was inspired to crochet this little Zebra animal to give to my nephew, maybe for Christmas (good to get started early, huh?!) I got the pattern from a gal on Etsy and it was easy to follow (it just took me about 5 hours to make!) I’m sure if I were to make another one, it would take a little less time. I grabbed a white handle bag & 12 x 12 sheet of zebra stripe paper from my stash and cut a coluzzle circle for ZANE to peek through, after all he has to breath!!
Here is ZANE in all his glory, isn’t he the cutest!? If only you can feel him, he is so fun to hold and I hope my nephew will like him!
Here is ZANE’s back side, I just had to show his mane & tail, isn’t it cute?! See how similar his tail is to the one Asela drew?! I love it! I totally couldn’t help but smile the whole time he was taking shape, John was out Geocaching the night I made this, so when he got home-he saw Zane hanging out on his side of the bed & oohed and aahed over him!
Here is a close up of Zane on the card, I fashioned him like the real life Zane with black legs & white nostrils. I used a black copic atyou spica pen for sparkle all over his body and actually used some of my hoarded bling & dazzle zoo brads!
