Throwback Thursday: Big Christmas Blanket W.I.P

Mum and Dads Christmas Blanket 2011
I decided to make my Mum and Dad a big Grannny Square blanket for Christmas back in 2011 - It was my first big project and took me about 2 months. I was so sick of it by the end that I said I'd never make another one, but of course I did hehe! I now love making these blankets - they're one of my favourite things to crochet. Funny how your tastes in making things can change over time...

Throwback Thursday: Brentwood Craft Fair 2010

Pictures from my second craft fair at Brentwood Leisure Centre in December 2010 :)

I really enjoyed this fair - there were lots of people there and a lot stopped to talk to me about my work and how much they liked it, which is so nice to hear! 

Note the yarn wig in the first pic - I made it using my Amigurumi Hair Tutorial :)

Pocket Bunny Friends

Hey Guys,

Just updated the shop with some new, ready to ship amigurumi! Let me introduce the Pocket Bunny Friends!

Pastel Pocket Bunny Friend

Purple Vari Pocket Bunny Friend

I wanted to make a little amigurumi that you could carry round in your pocket. I originally started out making a scrap monster, but they soon turned into little bunnies :)

Each Pocket Bunny Friend is approx. 3.5'' tall and made of soft DK yarn, in a variety of variegated patterns. No two bunnies are the same as the variegated yarn makes a different pattern each time :)

They are available in my Etsy shop now for £5.50 each.

I hope you like them!

Throwback Thursday: Bear Ear Headbands

This is me, 5 years back, with my first Bear Ear Headband! I look so much younger (and thinner lol)

I made a lot of these headbands for local craft fairs, but sadly never for my Etsy shop. I would like to have another go at making them though - maybe refining the pattern a bit (the ears look a little lumpy to me...)
