Thwomp Crochet Pattern

Happy February!

Crocheting the face part of this project was actually fairly straight forward and all went according to plan. However, I ran into problems when it came time to do the border. The original plan was to also crochet that too, however, after many failed attempts I soon realised that it wouldn’t work for the small size of my Thwomp. This is why I had to adjust my original plans and switch to a felt border. Sewing this felt border was the most time-consuming part of this project (also sewing is definitely not my strong suit!).

Nevertheless, I really like the outcome and I LOVE mixed media projects. I feel like it adds another dimension to your project. So just remember, as you are agonisingly sewing the border together and asking yourself, “will the end ever be in sight?” – that the outcome is well worth all the hard work!

The approximate measurements using DK yarn and 3mm hook are 5 inches height, 5 inches width and 2 inches length/depth.
