So for months I've been trialling different fairy wing ideas for The Book and they have been utter rubbish. Many many hours and a lot of wasted wool later I gave up thinking if I have to include some then they'll have to be boring and awful. Then Halloween reared it's fancy dress head and I decided to make a pair for me. I can't make them for a fantasy girl but I DEFO know what I would want, and these are they...
I will write up the pattern but it'll be more of a guide than anything so it might end up on here instead of etsy. Keep em peeled xxx
This little collection is based on a brief to make 10 minute Christmas crochet patterns. I had a pale, shabby chic notion of washed out fairies and rough string baubles (will TOTALLY make those one day) but in 10 minutes? It had to be the classics. So here are crochet robin, crochet Christmas tree, crochet Christmas star and crochet holly each taking no more than it does to make a cup of tea.
They can go on cards, adorn pressies, temporarily take place on your favourite cardie or hang from the tree - versatile little chaps aren't they! Will put the star pattern here for free shortly and the rest come in a pack at my etsy shop for tuppence.
So the big beast has asked for a complete Captain America crochet collection for this winter, we're talking hat, gloves, leg warmers and shield jumper. Having dutifully finished up hat it's now onto shield. Will whizz up the pattern and get it on Etsy asap x
So the small beast is literally car mad, this is the first chance I've had to make him something that he actually wants. If you want to make your own it literally is only 4 pieces - 2 of which are wheels, a car shape, a helmet and a window. This one is made from an amazing 70's duvet...
So I'm always going to be addicted to crochet but I'm in a phase of going back to my childhood crush - vintage fabric scraps. Obsessing over awesome patterns and appliqué possibilities right now. MANY pics to come but here's a hare and a hedgehog for starters xxx
