I'm still obsessed with making cute amigurumi crocheted things. But I took a little break to make this...
Okaaayyyy... so it's still cute and resembles amigurumi, but it opens!
Yes... you read that correctly. This Slurpee opens and can be used as a bag!
No way! You know as soon as I saw the pattern for this (and then learned how to crochet) that I just had to make it!
Here's the link to my project on Ravelry (it should have a link to the pattern in there, but as I was crocheting it, I went back to the pattern and it only had pictures and no instructions! ack! Good thing I was able to get a cached version of the pattern and keep going).
Originally, the pattern was for more of a generic looking slushie. It had felt letters spelling "cool" on the front. I decided that this one had to look like an authentic Slurpee, so I carefully cut out the label from a cup, hole punched it along the edge and sewed it on with the blue and red yarn I used to make the cup.
Here's what the back looks like. I love how the stripes swirl a little. The top of the Slurpee closes with a drawstring. The pattern actually had me make several little buttonholes along the top of the Slurpee part in order to string the chain through for a closure. I'm going to put all my Slurpee run money, cellphone, keys, sunglasses, etc in here this summer and use it A LOT! It's so cute!
What do you think? A project totally designed for me isn't it? Or for almost anyone here in the Slurpee capital of the world! :D
