Hedgehog Hook Holder

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.

Little Mermaid Cushion

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.


Cupcake Cowl

Issue 26 of Crochet Now magazine had a rather sweet pattern for a cupcake topped cowl which I couldn’t resist.  I raided my stash and found some Caron Simply Soft in suitable colours and whipped this up in just 1 day using some red buttons as the cherries on top.
