While on holiday to Loch Ness I popped in to Morag’s Crafty Bothy for a bit of pottery painting. I picked this hedgehog pen holder and a selection of crazy colours and created not a pen holder but a hook holder! It now sits with a few of my other crafty makes above my desk.
I received this kit for my birthday, completed it and gifted it to a different friend for their birthday. Pass on the love people.
The recent Royal Wedding themed Little Box of Crochet had the supplies to make this very cute teacup and saucer. Working with the gold was a real pain in the ass but the end result made it worth the trouble.
I had used the crochet corner to corner method of making Ariel in the middle and had always planned on making the other princesses to make a full blanket. Turns out I hate doing the corner to corner method. I fins it very messy having all those bobbins and threads everywhere. I found some rather cute Little Mermaid fabric and decided to just make this into a cushion. Again this turned out rather wonky but still pretty overall.
So utterly wonky and I was really not happy with it but when I look at it from a distance then it’s not to bad haha!
I really should have made this a little larger but didn’t have quite enough fabric to do so, but it’ll do a turn. Unicorn fabric rocks.
A few years ago I bought this sewing kit at a craft show and took one look at the instructions and stuffed it firmly back in the cupboard. Having recently brought out the sewing machine I finally decided to just give it a go, and hey presto it all turned out OK, and it even has inside pockets!!
