This isn’t any birds nest we are talking of here.
But the nest of an Evil Squirrel. Amongst the many (evil) friends he has, are the naughty possum Buster and Rainbow Donkey.
I promised myself to crochet Evil Squirrel months back when I first visited his blog. And last week I discovered a fantastic doll making technique – the topsy turvy dolls. My mind started to brew !! How about a possum hiding inside Evil Squirrel ….. squuueeeeeaaaall!!! I couldn’t wait to see this idea in form ! And Evil Squirrel’s contest announced few weeks back gave me enough reason to get started on this evil project.
To be honest, I hate contests and often shy away from participating in them. But, I was for long nurturing the idea of crocheting Evil Squirrel and I kept postponing because I feared the details were very difficult to translate in crochet. And I am extremely contented the way all of them have turned out.
Meet the three friends. Evil Squirrel, Buster the possum, and Sparkly the unicorn (or donkeycorn ) !!!
And some more pics ……
In my hurry to finish all of them, I missed out on adding a couple of more details…like the mouth for ES and Buster, Buster’s tail stripes etc. On the whole I really loved crocheting all three of them, but love Buster the best ! Thanks to the contest, I got to crochet ES finally !!
