ScrapHappy July 2018

One of our regular Knit Nighters has moved away and so we will only be seeing her when she comes up for an occasional visit. Before she left, however, she witnessed the creation of the alpacadillo and she was besotted. I didn’t have time to make her one of her own before she left, so this little chap will have to go in the post:

His head, body, limbs and tail are made from the remains of a ball of wool from Sophie, but I can’t remember what the shell is an oddment from… anyway, it was lurking in a basket of small left-over balls, so I clearly made something out of it at some time (I do know it’s one of the last remaining bits from the sadly missed company Colinette). This critter is 100% wool, so not an alpacadillo, but a scrapadillo, I think. It’s going to live in Swindon.

I’ve been inspired to write this (and future) ScrapHappy posts by Kate, who provides links to other (mostly sewing) ScrapHappy bloggers at Tall Tales from Chiconia on the fifteenth of every month… do check them out.

  1. I can well understand the besottedness… This one is lovely, and his shell is made up from some of my favourite colours 🙂 All your ‘dillos are such perfect little scrap-user-uppers!

  3. Isn’t that a lovely use of scrap bits! I like the way he fits into his shell too. I keep meaning to catch up with Kate and never seem to make it 🙂 I’ve just finished making a poncho mostly from the left overs of the yarn for the Persian tiles. The gift that keeps on giving 🙂 xo

  8. What a cute little armadillo! I like the shell and the way he seems to be searching for bugs when he’s out of it and standing. Armadillos actually rattle when they run, but I bet yours is pretty stealthy.

    What a wonderful little guy! Head on, he sort of reminds me of Alf, but I love his scrappy shell.
