Foam Blocking Mat/Board Set Review…

Hello everyone. This blog is about this really nice foam blocking mat/board Set that I got to try out. It is from this Company called WooLove and they have a few items listed on amazon. This blocking mat that I got to try out is one of their newest products.

P1020682

I made a you TubeVideo On the blocking mat as well . You can see that video at the link blow:

 

Here is some info on the Foam Blocking mat. Each set is a set of 9 foam  square mats. Each square foam mat is 12 x 12. Each set comes with 60 T pins. A T pin is a pin with a straight edge on top of it looking like a T on top of it. Each foam mat square has straight line’s on it so you get a nice straight edges on you finished crochet,knitting, or fiber arts project that your blocking out on it. You can also use the lines on the square mats to create other shapes so you get just the right shape for your finished project. Each foam square is heat-resistant. There for you can steam block your finish work on it , spray bottle your project wet, or wet dry your finished project on it. Each foam blocking mat set also comes in a nice plastic bag that zips up.

P1020684

Each foam mat square goes together kinda like a puzzle piece.

P1020685

 

As you put together each foam square the square’s becomes flat and makes a very nice smooth spot to block your finished crochet ,knitting, or fiber arts work out on.

The way that I tried out the foam mats was I needed to block out some granny squares of mine out before putting them together. So I took one of them. Put it down on the mat used the lines to lay it out in a nice square shape. I put the T pins that the set came with on each corner of the granny square. Making sure that the square was flat before putting the pins in. Then sprayed it with water and let it sit for a few hours to dry.

P1020688

Once the square was dry. I then took the T pins out.

P1020686

I looked at the square. I was very happy that the edges looked nice and that the square was the correct size that I wanted it to be.

P1020687

I liked how the foam blocking mat has worked out so far, I will be trying out some steam blocking on it soon as well as doing a how to block finished projects out on a foam blocking mat. I will be writing about it as well as making a video.

All of these crochet items are lots of fun to make. They all have easy to fallow directions for all levels of crochet. Loved crocheting/making each and every one of them. Here are the crochet patterns, more info about all of the crochet patterns, and more pic.’s of the crocheted items.

 

The Bigger Ghost and The Mini Ghost:

P1020117

The bigger ghost came out a little bigger then the original pattern and I used smaller safety eyes then the pattern suggested. The pattern is a free crochet pattern designed by Hookabee.

You can down load your free copy of the pattern on Hookabee’s website in the free pattern section.

Here is the link to her site:

Hookabee Patterns

She also has a good podcast on YouTube you can find it just by typing Hookabee in the search section. She also has other free and payed for crochet patterns for other cute amigurumi’s on here website.

I decided that I wanted a smaller ghost so I used hookabee’s pattern as a reference and made it into a smaller scale and out popped out a mini ghost.

The yarn That I used for the bigger ghost and mini ghost is:

P1020123

The yarn I used was paintbox cotton DK yarn. In the colors yellow-green for the bigger green Ghost and Mustered Yellow for the mini  Ghost. For the eyes I used black 7.5mm safety eyes for the bigger ghost and black 6mm safety eyes for the mini ghost. Both ghost eyes were from 6060 eyes, crocheted with a furls crochet odsey hook in size D, stuffed with polly-fill stuffing, and cotton floss in black for their lips.

Here is some pic.’s of the bigger and mini ghost:

The mini burger and mini sprite bottle:

P1020122

For the mini burger and mini sprite bottle their patterns are both made by Amigurumi food. The mini burger is a free pattern that can be found on Amigurumi food’s web site under the free patterns section .

Here is a link where you can find the mini burger’s  pattern:

http://www.amigurumifood.com/2015/09/free-pattern-all-together.html

 

The mini sprite bottle can be found in Amigurumi food’s Etsy store it is $5.00 and has another way to make the sprite bottle into a coke a cola bottle as well a chicken burger pattern and french fry’s pattern. It is worth buying the pattern that you can then down load onto you computer. It has directions that are good for first time amigurumi crocheter’s as well as if you have made a lot of amigurumi’s. Lots of good pic’s. Very good directions and you get 3 patterns that are all very fun looking to make as well as different choice’s of the color of yarn for the soda flavor that you want to make. You can go to the Amigurumi food’s Etsy store by going to her web page and by clicking the Etsy circle on her page it is orange with a white E inside it.

Here is her web page:

She has lots of other fun crochet patterns to buy and for free. Like in my blogs and podcast’s before this I have crocheted a few other items off of Amigurumi food’s web site that were lots of fun. As well as I will be crocheting some more of her items. Love all of her crochet patterns/ items.

 

The yarn for the mini burger that I used was:

P1020126

PaintBox cotton Dk. In the shades yellow-green for the light green color, for the red color it was called pillar red, for the light brown color in light carmeled , paper white, coffee brown, and mustard yellow.  For the burgers face it was done in black cotton floss for the lips, 6mm safety eyes from 6060 eyes, pink cotton floss for the cheeks, white cotton floss for the seeds on the bun. Stuffed with polly-fill stuffing for only the bun being stuffed. Crochet hook odesy hook made by furls crochet in size D.  I do plan on putting a string down the middle of the mini burger , that way all the peace’s stay together, and  that way I can hang it up some place.

 

For the Mini soda bottle the yarn that was used is:

P1020147

Paintbox Yarn in their cotton DK yarn. In the yarn colors paper white, mustard yellow, grass-green, and evergreen for the darn green color. Stuffed with polly-fill stuffing. The straw part is on stuffed  and just has a stitch in it, so that way it stayed bent, you could add a pipe cleaner or wire in it to make it even more bendy if you want that kind of effect for the straw. For the face it was black 6mm eyes from 6060 eyes , cotton floss in lime green for the cheeks and black for the lips. Crochet hook size D furls crochet odesy hook.

The mini corn:

P1020131

The mini corn was made with a Twinki Chan pattern that was linked to a video of her making the corn together with you in one of her payed for video classes. The web site that her payed for video was on is $4.99 a month they had a few other payment options that made it less money to get but I picked the monthly one. You get the first 14 days free. The class area that the pattern is found on has other videos and pattern you can watch as well as a few other Twinki Chan patterns and videos. Each video that you get, has the video, a pdf  of the pattern, and lots of info on how to make the items. It is great for any stage of crochet that you are at and is easy to fallow/understand as well as really fun to make and fallow along  together with someone. It really is like you are crocheting together with someone. Loved this pattern and video.
