Calling All Crafters! You Could Be Featured on Squirrel Picnic

Margie's Mr. Potato Head

Margie’s Mr. Potato Head is amazing. She even crocheted the facial features!

Have you made a pair of croshades and used them to yarnbomb your neighborhood? Have you made a Batman mask, a Mr. Potato Head, or a Bowser sweater for your turtle? Do you have a Squirrel Picnic character that you’re proud to call your own? If so, I’d love to see it.

I’m in the process of putting together a roundup of crocheted awesomeness by fantastic picnickers like you. If you’ve had fun using one of my patterns, send a photo of what you made to squirrelpicnic{at}gmail{dot}com by August 22, and I’ll include it in the roundup.

I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
