Craft Time: Crochet Whales

Standard

Lately I’ve been in this vortex of crafting videos on YouTube and I have no regrets. I am not ashamed to admit, I now know how to make fancy shaker cards, felt animals (see previous crafting attempt), pretty nails (don’t even get me started on snow globe nails) and now crochet animals.

You know this might be something I could really get into. It’s been two weeks and I’ve made more whales, stars, and a turtle!

Success!!!
