YARN - The After Party 162 - Perfect PotionsBy Anne Farichai
Enter the enchanting world of amigurumi and conjure up two captivating and mysterious potions. These "Perfect Potions" would make amusing novelties for Halloween, or perhaps for the right recipient, a mischievous gift! Known for her quirky and imaginative crochet creations, Anne Farichai has designed these concoctions with a mixture of smooth Scheepjes Catona and tactile River Washed yarns. With its hazy aura, River Washed is an inspired choice to portray the vivid, fizzing potion concealed within the bottle! These soft sculptures, with removable skull and heart-shaped stoppers, stand around 15cm tall when stuffed and embellished with sleepy embroidered features.
Who will dare to stir them into life?
