Only You Can Prevent Crocheted Fires...

Hey y'all!

I got the latest issue of Crochet Today and of course saw about 10 patterns I wanted to try all at once. But I did my best to restrain myself and choose just one (for now) and ended up deciding to make this one:

(Picture from CrochetToday.com)

Awwwww...Isn't that the cutest thing you ever did see? A teeny tiny precious camp fire with a happy sweet marshmallow friend on a stick...

Wait a minute...why would a marshmallow be so happy to get lit on fire anyway? Yeah, that's what I thought so I decided to take this pattern and "snark" it up a little bit, Maggi Style...Ka-POW!

That's right...TWO marshmallows on a stick, one of which has already been put through this darling little fire that looks wayyyyyy too happy to be lighting things aflame...then again, that's what fires do so his joyful expression is actually a fair representation.

Anyhoo, there you have it! Poor little marshmallows...at least they got the Toot Seal of Approval:

You know what, these guys deserve a good home. How about a giveaway? My little fire and marshmallow friends are looking for a new pad and if you would like to be that...uh...pad, just leave a comment on this post and I'll announce the winner this week during my Friday Night Fab Five.

Have a great day everyone!

  7. Maggi, I think your little marshemllows and fire is simply exquisite. :-))) Toot is just my absolutely favorite baby in the world since my own daughter is now 15 and behaving more like a Texas cactus. :-)))
    So sorry for being absent for a while and being such a terrible Blog friend. Past few weeks were simply crazy between racing to Texas to get fabrics for upcoming collection, renovation of my house and day to day things in Atelier. It feels so wonderful to have a moment to visit my favorite Blogs and read fabulous posts just like this one. Have a very beautiful the rest of the week. :-)

Actually, I'm in awe of anyone who can crochet or knit..wish I could but it's not gonna happen for me. Your marshamallows are hilarious...I love them. And Toot, as always is adorable. Thanks for sharing and giving me a good laugh this morning.

  21. Maggi, that is just WAY too adorable for words! Toot loves them. :) I'd love to be considered. I can keep them with my owls, because I think that owls love marshmallows (it's just a little known fact). LOL You are so great with crochet! Yippee!!! Theresa

  24. I absolutely LOOOOOVE Them. I wish I had them for my boys. They love to pretend and these would be great little friends to add to our enchanted play area. We would make sure they were happy playing with all the other little oddities.
