We have a fair few family and friends birthdays in the run up to the festive season and just beyond....
when I first started to crochet I bookmarked lots of online patterns - one was the
which I have made for my niece
The granny was great to hook in sumptuously soft Rowan Handknit Cotton. I made up my own strap - which took considerably longer than the square
(measured in Sherlocks - it took two (90minute) episodes!).
An edging to match the strap was added to the flap and a perfectly coloured button from a random button tub. Its lined with a square from an old shirt.
I enjoyed the photo shoot in a borrowed autumnal garden!
A heart to hang has travelled North...
this is my own design and comes out a slightly different shape with each yarn used.
The one above is cotton yarn with sewing thread.
These were DK red and laceweight white wool.
Christmas crochet is happening at a cracking pace...there are lots of designs and projects in the pipeline - all at various stages of in progressness!
There will also be some festive felt to share with you....
better get back to the making.
Wishing everyone a Happy Advent
and many moments of calm in the seasonal preparations!
