WIP: plum snood

 

I told you I’d have to get some more of that gorgeous colour from my yarn pack! 

Now this isn’t quite the same colour, but it’s pretty close and I’m happy to say that I’m actually making this cowl for myself! 

I can’t wait for it to be a bit bigger so I can wear it to work to brighten up my mornings 🙂

The pattern for this cowl can be found here.

Felt owls

My Mum bought me this lovely little set to make my own felt owls.

It was all pre-cut, so there were pieces of felt, some floral fabric, the thread, the stuffing and the buttons for eyes.

So, I got to work and blanket stitched the body parts together.

Then, throughout several lunch breaks I made the wings, the eyes and stitched on the beak. Today I put it all together using the fabri-tac glue I got in my Crafty Creative box 1 (which has been insanely helpful just like Kayleigh told me it would be, without me even realising).

 

And here is the finished owl, I think he’s going to sit on my desk at work from Tuesday onwards 🙂

Crochet or very simple knit cardigan

I would love to make myself a cardigan, a big chunky thing to keep me warm in the winter, or at least autumn. I would prefer to use a free pattern, but a pattern under say.. £3 would probably be okay (I don’t want it to be too expensive in case I a) don’t finish it or b) go horrendously wrong). Does anyone have any ideas?
