I learned how to do the foundation single crochet, and I kept going for about 3 meters. Then is twirled it all about and made this! It’s called a Carrick Bend mat, it’s not my coaster. I used Lily’s Sugar and Cream Ombre yarn which gave it a nice colour effect. Simples.
Have you ever seen a happier donut? It’s supposed to be a pincushion but I can’t stand to stab him with any pins 🙂
Depression and anxiety suck. Sometimes just a little reminder to be brave is all we need to get through the next hour, and if we can get through that hour, then maybe we can get through the next. A recent Crafty Club Box sent me a project to make these pocket pillows and one of the designs was this “Be Brave” which I immediately was drawn to. I loved the design of the bear head peeking over the edge of the pillow. This pocket pillow goes everywhere with me now.
My 3 year old is a big Marvel fan so I used 3 strands of Stylecraft Special Aran together to made this HUGE blanket for him in the style of Captain America’s shield.
I think this kit came from a magazine but I can’t remember which. I’ve never been one for hand sewing but I’m all for trying to improve my dodgy skills and I think this turned out really well. It was supposed to be a necklace but I accidentally snapped the chain so I turned it into a brooch instead.
This was another kit which I bought while on holiday back in June. I have a tendency to use small scrap cuts of felt to keep needles safe but then I can easily misplace the felt of chuck it away thinking it’s rubbish. This needle case will hopefully give me a pretty way to store all my extra needles.
I can’t get over how cute this girl is! I love the hair and her shell bra and she looks so chilled out in the teacup.
This was a free kit with a magazine (I think Mollie Makes, though I’m not 100% sure). I love the way it turned out and good practice on my hand sewing skills.
Jack loves the Mr Men stories so when I saw the Mr Men patterns in various issues of Crochet Now magazine I had to get to it! Learning how to do the i-cord took quite a while and I was dreading Mr Tickle’s arms but got there in the end and I think they look great. More importantly so does Jack ❤
This was a keyring kit I bought while on holiday to Loch Ness (1 of 4 cross stitch kits I bought). Super quick to make and adorable!
