For the past few weeks, I’ve been a little busy. I’m finishing my medical lab science (MLS) program and am facing 5 exams in 2 weeks plus a board certification exam. I’m mentally drained thinking about it! I’ll be graduating mid-August, and will be able to find time for sewing again after that. Until then, this post is going to be short and sweet so I can share a few of my little projects!
To keep down my stress, I worked on a few crochet projects to give to my instructors as thank-yous. Here’s the gang together:
For my hematology/blood bank instructor, I made her favorite clip art blood drop that shows up in every powerpoint she gave us. The pattern is based off this pattern for a water droplet, and limbs are simply a chain coming off of the body with 5 sc in the second to last stitch. The face was made with felt and hot glue.
My chemistry instructor’s favorite organ ever, the liver! I picked up the pattern from Etsy for a few dollars, but had difficulty with the tip of the liver. Honestly, I have no idea what I did to make it that shape because I redid this, not following the pattern instructions because the math didn’t work out for the tip. Also, the liver is accompanied by the smallest mug of beer ever.
Last but not least, a black cat for my microbiology instructor who just adopted a pair of kittens. Because cats are much more exciting to crochet than a gram stained organism. More about this pattern can be found here, because this is a go-to pattern for me and I’ve made at least 4 now.
That’s all I have for now! I’ll be back to posting more exciting things shortly, once the dust has settled and I have a chance to take some photos. I currently have one completed blouse that I want to share and another bag tutorial, so look forward to that in a couple weeks.
