F.O Friday !! A Granny shrug , Patchwork pillow and Recycled tshirts for teddys !!

well today is a bit of a tad ah !!! moment for me ! Ive made a granny shrug which I'm very proud of and i love to wear .An easy crochet pattern which is so quick to do that I'm tempted to make more, also can be a child's shrug as well you just don't do as many rows as the adults. I used a 12mm hook to get the tension i wanted.
pattern is here:

Ive also been at my new sewing machine this week ,I've made a patchwork cushion .

and my children kept asking for clothes for their teddy bears like the "build a bear ", so we found old Tshirt's of theirs which involved lots of Tshirt's flying about their room while they hunted !!
The result isn't brilliant but my children are happy ! I did added a little patchwork heart to the girl Teddy's Tshirt .

I loved a square in the leap year blanket that I did so much that I turned it into a dream catcher for my daughter.

The dream weaver square.

Here's the square in my blanket.
