I’ve got to say I’m more than a bit pleased with the polka dot leather bag and matching pouch I made last week. It’s going to make a nice gift for someone special – but first I thought I’d share my process, including a pattern with step by step instructions.
If you have around £7 and a little bit of knitting know how you’ll be able to make yourself a super easy, comfy, toasty beanie with a big fluffy pre-made pom-pom attached. This fluff ball twigged a memory about a much loved folding plush from days gone by.
I’m a lucky duck with a brand new hand knitted red jumper. Made just for me.
I once spent a fair amount of time knitting petal shaped appliques. It was fun playing around with increasing and then decreasing stitches over and over. Now when I open up a cushion out pop knitted bits crawling over each other trying to escape incarceration.
When I decided to invest in a vintage Bernina sewing machine I did a bit of research and found out that a machine kept in good nick is quite sort after. To ensure she’s kept stitching and sewing well into the future it’s essential to clean and maintain the internals regularly.
I wrote last week about picking up long lost projects and developing them further using new skills. So in that spirit I’m going to take my crochet applique and make a gif, a fabric repeat pattern, and a chickie print baby grow.
