Create Crochet Etsy Team Weekly Challenge - August

This week's weekly challenge has 3 categories:

Summer Wrap Up
Intro to Harvest
Peridot (August Birthstone)

Here is my entry for the "Peridot" category

Introducing "Augusto Peridot" - This adorable lion was created for the CreateCrochet Etsy Team Challenge for the category "peridot".

Alexis and I couldn't decide what to make for the August birthstone of Peridot. Alexis is my 12 year old daughter. What she came up with is this cute little fellow that she calls Augusto Peridot! It rhymes, and this guy is a play on the August birthstone and astrological sign. We didn't want to call him "Leo" as that is the name of lots of lions. We gave him Peridot green eyes which is the August birthstone and we accented his mane and tail with some darker shades of green to give him some contrasting colors!

This is a big lion at 17" tall by 13" wide

I can make this lion in any color combo. This color combo was specifically chosen for this challenge.


Here is my entry for the "Summer Wrap Up" category

This adorable sun hat was made for the CreateCrochet Etsy Team Challenge for the category "summer wrap-up"

This adorable hat is made in hot pink with a black band. It is adorned with pink, white, and lavender flowers and a turquoise, green, and hot pink butterfly!

This hat can be made in any color combination and can be made in any size!


Here is my entry for the "Intro To Harvest" category

This adorable wall decoration or door hanging is a great way to bring in the fall harvest season!

This item measures 16" wide and 21" long so this is a good size decoration.

The wagon is done in a nice warm brown. The pumpkins are done in 3 different colors or orange to bring contrast to the harvest and then the entire piece is accented by green vines and leaves.

Each piece of this design is individually made and then each piece is individually sewn together. Please allow 7 - 10 days for me to make this item for you.

This item was made for the CreateCrochet Etsy Team Weekly Challenge for the "Intro To Harvest" category.
