I found the pattern for this wonderful little marmot from Ravelry. My son loves marmots and this was a perfect gift for him. I had some scraps of yarn already in my possession, so I started crocheting this on Christmas day when I was visiting my parents. This was a great little holiday project!
Pimping your bicycle is a nice project. I crocheted a skirt guard and made a nice basket liner that uses old pillow case lace as a decoration. To add some more refashioning, I turned old baby mitten holders into bicycle skirt garters.
