Although I really enjoy painting canvases, my true passion is for functional art. Evidently, I like to make stuff that does stuff. I’m not even sure why. I managed a bit of functional crochet when I designed my Henry VIII pin cushion and Anne Boleyn scissor cozy a couple of years back.
What I still want, however, is to crochet things that can be used by anyone. I have had an idea in my head for about two years now that involves a can of refried beans and Shakespeare. Ready? He’s kind of adorable.
Yes, that’s Shakespeare with an empty can inside him, holding my scissors, ruler, gel pens, and more. I’ll have the pattern finalized and available by next weekend!
