No, we're not sharing Bruiser's name just yet but we figured the first letter couldn't hurt. ;)
In constant search of little crafts I could do from bed during my last days of pregnancy. I grew bored of knitting quickly but, I did discover that I could weave using just yarn and my hands.
To start, I just looped the yarn around my fingers in a figure-eight pattern until I had two loops on each finger.
From there, I pulled the bottom loop on each finger over the back of my hand to the front until I only had a single loop on each finger.
Then I wound the yarn around my fingers in a figure-eight pattern once again until I had two loops once again and could repeat the last step.
My finished product was a long, snake-like woven piece of yarn.
From there I grabbed some styrofoam and cut it into the first letter of little Bruiser's name. We're not sharing her full name just yet. ;) I glued my woven wool to the front with hot glue.
And now we have a personal piece of art which will also add some texture to our nursery.
