Little Things

I’ve been trying to make little things here and there in between work…. so far there is a theme of coasters and bunting. Although I have just set my sights a bit bigger and decided to start a blanket, I have the yarn now just need to get making….I will update you on my progress though I have a tendency to jump between projects so this may take some time

Oh my word….

My last post was a while ago, I really need to get back into the habit so I can get back into the making groove! My life has seriously been lacking anything creative recently, which is never good so I have been trying to make time for making…. so far here is what I’ve got

Making out of necessity…I needed a basket for all my make up junk, why buy when you can crochet??

It was also one of my lovely sister’s birthday the other month so I came up with some handmade gifts which she seemed pretty pleased with!

Watch this space for more bits and pieces!

The finished dress!

Here are some pictures of the finished little dress, it’s been my longest project so far and was challenging to begin with as I everything I have made before has been with chunkier wool…the finer stuff took a little bit of getting used to!

Progress on the little dress…

Thought I would share with everyone my progress so far, I’ve been doing the odd row here and there after a good few hour stint at the beginning (in which I had to unravel it completely add I was doing the wrong stitch! That was frustrating haha) …now it is coming along quite nicely and the back panel isn’t to far from being finished!

Little Dresses

Last week I was asked if I could make a little crochet baby dress for a friend, I’ve not been asked before and am really looking forward to seeing how it will turn out….and I found the cutest pattern! It is also a very welcome break from my mission to make phone cases at the minute for craft shows over the summer (photos to come).

A bit of night time crochet…

Postathon!

I got a bit carried away making lots of bits over the last week and a half that I forgot to post about them all! So I am now going to bombard you with pictures of my random little creations….hope you like them!

Colour edge coasters.

Again sorry the photos are a but dark, the weather is being relentlessly miserable! Hence the bright colours to cheer myself up! I’ve also been thinking about starting to do craft fairs and trying to sell a range of work online….thinking up a name is hard work!

Colour Dip Bunting

This week had been a little bit slow on the making front, mainly I’ve been taking apart things which I haven’t been happy with. And from the wool I made this bunting, I need to give it a bit of an iron to flatten each piece but apart from that I think it’s quite cute.

Sorry the photos are a bit dark it’s a really horrible rainy day today!

Mothers day gift

I decided to undertake a bigger project than I have tried before for my gift for my mum this mothers day, I decided on a cushion in shades of grey, cream, blue and black. I worked the whole thing in rounds so that I didn’t have to worry about matching up stripes at the end.

I worked it up in asymmetric stripes of dc and trc, I love the contrast of really tiny stripes alongside thicker ones.

Bits and pieces

I’ve been working on a few things this week, my sister asked me for a pair of slippers a while back so I got round to making those floor her, I also finished my mothers day present….but I can’t post that up just yet! And them just a few other things which I thought I would have a go at… Alice’s Slippers
