A Squiggly Wiggly Fun !!!!!!! :)

Hi !!!!! Hope you had a good night’s sleep or wish you a one depending on what part of the world you are :) Just for a  change wrote this line, got bored writing ......”Hope you had a nice weekend or doing well” :)

I am happy to share another lovely project with you . A wiggles cushion !!! It was on my todo list items when Anshita said she wanted one . There are many ways of crocheting wiggles , covering full or partial area of work . I assessed many patterns and finally chose the beautiful yet easy one designed by none other than my dear friend , Debi ! :) She designed wiggles square for SIBOL . It is a lovely square and fun to make . She wrote the instructions here which are very clear and easy to follow . Thank you for this cute pattern, Debi !! :)

I repeated the steps in the basic design and extended it to make a small cushion size square measuring 12 x 12 inches .

This is the square before adding a fabric on the back side .  I have used purse thread which is silky and shiny and has a bit of firmness so that the wiggles can stand upright . I crocheted the base square with 3.5 mm hook and the wiggles with 4.5 mm hook .  For the border it is a line of HDCs with multicolored thread .

I took pictures yesterday night in Anshita’s room . Her room is old fashioned now ; I designed it 10 years back from a toddler’s perspective .

Anshita , shooing me away from her bedroom :) She found this hand puppet when I took some small soft toys from her stock as props for pictures . Kids never know how many toys they have and it is a big surprise to them when they find an old forgotten one !!

On mother ’s day , Anshita made this beautiful card with origami flowers and an origami ring box :) When the flower blooms (of course, it has to be manually opened :) , there pops out a tiny origami candle in the centre !!

The ring box can be opened and there is an origami heart shaped ring for me :) Raj helped her fix a foam piece inside the box . In all, it was a happy mother ’s day !:) I wasn't expected to cook either :)

Few more photos of my cute cushion .

    cushion Beautiful.

  21. The pillow is beautiful. I love Debi and her blog. Good choice. :-)

  22. Cute pillow for a girl's room! Why are they called wiggles? Because of their zig zag movement, I guess.
    My son gave me his toy car(after much insistence) on mother's day and then demanded it back after some time. :( May be he will understand after few years.
    Anshita does everything to keep her mum happy! So very thoughtful of her. Good job, baby! :)
