For me, I sketch! Anytime I get an idea, inspiration or just a spark of something... I sketch it out. I can't tell you how many times I have drafted out full crochet patterns on the back of a napkin while drinking coffee. From quilts to plush to blogging, I sketch out everything! Even my tarot readings!!
Little peek inside my sketchbook today! I've been jotting down idea after idea lately and boy do I have a ton! I already have a pattern drafted out for some fleece monsters AND a monster head throw pillow. *gasp*!
Not sure if I mentioned this on the blog earlier, but I have a some sewn fleece monsters (hopefully) in the works this weekend! I'm doing a bunch of tests on these guys, so fingers crossed I will have something to post about on Monday! If all goes well, I will have the monsters in 3 colors for now: chartreuse, neon pink and a a deep wine red. I'm so excited to start these guys that the wait is killing me! I need to wrap up some things this week before I can begin, I will feel SO much better doing that.
Also, I mentioned throw pillows above. Yes! I have yet to draft anything for this project yet. This idea is still just a sketch in my book but I think I have an idea of how I want to execute these guys. I mean, who doesn't want a monster head pillow on their couch or in their kids room, right?!
