Crafty update…

03 Jul 12

As I’ve been missing for a while I thought I’d do a quick post about a few bits I’ve been working on inbetween all the wedding stuff before I catch you up on what I’m currently working away on…

I started subscribing to Mollie Makes; it’s super cute and I love some of the ideas in there. I ordered one of the back issues so that I could get the free kit to make this keyring/bag charm. Think I might use my fabric and felt stash to make some in different colours…

I worked on a few baby items too, using the most awesome chasmere – merino blend in a silvery grey (a lot lighter than it looks in the photos). First was a baby blanket from one of the Stitch’n’Bitch books for a good friend of my boyfriends, and then I made a hat and scratch mitts for a girl at work…

The most recently finished project was my iPhone case. I love it, and I get a lot of compliments on it. I bought the case from Firebox and used my stash of embroidery floss to come up with a colourful pattern (you only get 3 colours with the case). I made the pattern up as I went along and tried to make sure I used even amounts of the colours. I had intended to unpick it and redo it when I got bored of the design, but it took so long to complete, so I may have to buy a second case instead!

I have done a little work on my Hug cushion, though I’m nearly done with the colour which means I’ll need to start filling all the white areas, but that seems incredibly tedious so it’ll probably sit in my craft basket for another 6 months. I should probably try and do a little each week…

So that’s just about it for now, I’m starting on a few other projects that I’ll update on soon, and have my eye on a whole bunch of other new projects!
