Eyema Hugga - Pattern

Eyema Hugga - Pattern

Eyema Hugga loves to give hugs and is especially good for fiddly little (and big) hands.  She has wonderful back bobbles that provide a lovely sensation when you run your hands over them, and her hair tubes are fantastic to fiddle with.

Eyema was designed and made with Scheepjes Stone Washed XL which is a 70% Cotton and 30% Acrylic blend.  This makes her soft but resilient!  Stone Washed XL is exceptionally soft and squishy and rates a 3 (Fluffy Chickens) on our squishy rating scale.

Eyema has no hard edges and is made only from yarn and synthetic filling meaning she has no hard edges which is perfect for someone from the Hugga family!

Kyoto Inspired Hand Mitt

Kyoto Inspired Hand Mitt

Several years ago I was lucky enough to spend several weeks in Japan with my husband, Aunt, Uncle and Cousin.  We travelled around quite a bit seeing some of Honshu and Hokkaido, even going to the snow festival in Sapporo!

While wandering around on our first trip, we stopped into a little shop that had the most beautiful things made out of organic cotton.  One of the things that I had to have was the woven cotton hand mitt, so it came home with me (with a few other bits and pieces!).  

This was in early 2015 and recently it is starting to look a little bit worse for wear.  So I decided that I should make myself a new one!  Not being a weaver (although I could be easily tempted to give this a go) I decided that I would crochet myself one of these gorgeous mitts inspired by my Kyoto one.

So with my mitt, my trusty hook and some Red Heart 'Scrubby Smoothie' this is what I came up with!
