Hello my fellow crafters! Hope you've had a good jump into the week!
In a Summer that has brought us already many hot days, there's nothing better than a delicious and cool treat to beat the heat, don't you agree?
For this Tuesday free pattern I designed a super cute ice cream that could make a fun toy or an adorable decor for birthday parties and baby showers!
So, are you ready to crochet along? Choose your favorite yarn and colors and let's have some fun!
For this project I used Domigurumi Cotton, gifted me by the sweet Domitilla (owner of Domigurumi).
This extremely easy to work with yarn is made of cotton fibers crafted to make it specially soft to touch. Thanks to this cotton, the stitches result nice and neat and well defined.
Make sure to check out her website and her Instagram account (@domi.gurumi) and discover all the yarn options!
