Netflix & Stitch – Shrek

Time to pop your corn, cast on your yarn, and Netflix and stitch. This week’s edition will be Shrek. The fairy tale creatures are invading your swamp, so it’s time to get your crochet hook out and wish them away.

Living in a swamp has its advantages; peace and quiet from potentially rowdy neighbours; the feast of your ogre dreams on your doorstep; and a smell that ensures solitude is secured. However, with the Fairytale creatures being deported from Duloc, they’ve found their way to his swamp, causing all kinds of problems.

Waiting for her Prince Charming, she was locked in a tower guarded by a fiery dragon as she awaited to be rescued. Unfortunately, it was up to Shrek to save the day, which isn’t exactly the fairy tale ending a princess would expect. Luckily, your crochet can make a bad situation into an amazing one, and with this pattern, you can do just that.

A talking donkey isn’t exactly something you see everyday. Knitting and crocheting in silence is a thing of the past now the you have Donkey in your life. You’ll see why Shrek was irritated by this talking steed when you lose concentration but you’ll be best friends in no time.

While his shortcomings might not be easily recognisable from the beginning, you’ll find he has certain qualities in short supply. Lord Farquaad was hoping to marry Princess Fiona but found himself short of the mark. Now he’s living life in the belly of a dragon.

The one thing the Muffin Man knows his how to make a Gingerbread Man. This cheeky chap is delicious with a dollop of sass. While this pattern isn’t edible, those gumdrop buttons are still to die for, allowing for this adorable pastry to work his best style.

There’s something adorable about a puss in boots. Don’t fall for his charm though, this feline might have those kitty cat eyes, but show any signs of weakness and then it’s en garde! However, befriend Puss in Boots, and you’ve got a friend for life.
