I’m now making a blanket, followed by another blanket, followed by.. a blanket. And whatever random creatures get requested in between. I may have ordered Black Friday wool, I’m literally tripping over it.
I really like Halloween!
And I got to make stuff for a little display this year (sadly I can’t take photos).
It started with little pumpkins..
Then a few spiders crept in..
Inspiration from here
And some other little dudes..
And I needed some little things to hang up…
I didn’t follow instructions, but there are some here
Crochet and needle felt flowers:
And baby’s toys:
And some more pumpkins:
And a spidey web
And a little wreath:
copied from here
And this super cute tombstone thingy:
Actual pattern here
Ok, it’s not a proper person size…
But it still counts, right?
It’s based on this pattern, but I made the top a bit different, I sort of made it up as I went though. I used a different border to trim the bottom, I went for a square trim instead of the one in the pattern.
She seems to like it though!
Yarn: yarn fair poppet bright colours (I think it’s discontinued now though)
Pattern is here
Is not really my strong point!
Well, any sewing isn’t really my strong point really… just hoping…
Before I went back to work (6 1/2 months ago!), I had started sewing a tiny patchwork quilt. It had gone a bit wrong and ended up spending some time in storage. I dug it out to unpick the broken bit and repin it in the hope of getting a bit done over Easter. When I got it back out, I realised I’d already done that at some point (should I worry that I can’t remember????) and it just needed some sewing to finish.
So… guess what I did tonight? I still can’t sew though, but it’s acceptable for a first attempt. Well, I think so anyway! The original plan was to crochet around the outside, but the best way I think of to do that is to sew a blanket stitch around. And that isn’t happening tonight!
