Fur Flap Booties

I have completed one beautiful little fur flap baby bootie from Newborn Knots. These booties are just so cute that I couldn’t resist having a go at them.

I used doubled up light pink dk and a thin chunky white, with a fluffy (what I call snow) yarn for the fur flap. The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn and a 3.75mm hook. I used the above yarn with a 3.5mm hook and went with the 6-12 month size (as the pattern comes with 3 different sizes).

Carnival Reversible Cushion

Here’s an update on the scraps of yarn challenge cushion I have been making. I have completed all the individual blocks…

image

…and started to stitch them together for the front and back…

image

…with one panel completed as the back, just the rounds for the border need doing here to make the piece bigger…

image

…as suggested, I used whip stitch to stitch each together. Not the best photo in the world but you get the gist. From here the front needs to be stitched together and borders adding and finally the two bits fastened to one another (hopefully with a cushion inside, if I can find one).

Scraps of Yarn

I have took up another couple of projects to bust through my stash. It have decided to start the Scraps of Yarn Challenges created by the lovely being over at Creative Crochet. I have started with the reversible cushion and have completed part 1 of the four parts to this particular pattern.

image

As its a stash buster, its multicoloured however I have pretty much match the colours with the shown pictures in the pattern except for the brighter purple around the edge of the largest square. Its all dk using a 4mm hook.

Part 5 Doily MCAL

I have now caught up and have completed part 5 of the Doily MCAL that is being hosted on Facebook by CALs by BG Designs.

image

It’s now a giant 28.5″ across using black dk and a 4mm hook, instead of the 1.25mm hook and crochet thread. There are still some rounds to come so it will get even bigger and then there is the canvas backing to add…..exciting times 🙂

Part 5 Wonder CAL

Just for round to doing part 5 of the Wonder CAL Blanket 2016. Just using the two colours chosen originally. 5mm hook and dk yarn, it now sits at 10.5″ in ‘height’.

This little gem is going to be super warm, soft and wintery when its done and just in time for Christmas.

Doily MCAL

So there was another pattern I came across……yes, I started it. It’s the Doily MCAL and can be found on ‘CALs by BG Designs’ over on Facebook. It is obvious that it will be a doily and its a vamped up version, modern, deco , wallart piece so I can’t wait to see what it will look like.

Here is mine so far…

image

Joined yesterday and just finished now. I decided to use some yarn I already had and I wanted a bigger version, so this is black dk and a 4mm hook. Its about 18″ across at the moment. It was suggested to use crochet thread and a 1.5mm (or there abouts) hook. I like to go big when doing projects hahaha. I pinned it out so the stitches can be seen clearer until its finished and backed onto canvas.

Mother’s Day

So, for weeks now I have been working on a gift for my mother for mother’s day. I decided on a centre piece for her living room wall and this is what I came up with…

image

image

It is a series of doily chart patterns found on the images section of Google. So a massive shout out to all those talented people that can write patterns and charts for others to use. Thank you! It stands at 39.5″ x 23.5″ in size and it became mixed media when I had to fill spaces (which was before I finished all the doilies hahaha).

There is beading, crochet, paper flowers, gem stones and I was very much tempted to cover the thing in glitter….everyone loves glitter, especially the mess it makes xD…

It’s not the best lighting but I had to take pictures. The colours work with my mums colour scheme, with the wood in her room and the silver/chrome work through the use of the gems. Its a mixture of cotton thread and cur change (very thin) dk and a range of hook sizes…….

….so now this is done and dusted and in time for mother’s day (finishing in the day still counts haha). Onto the next project.
