Time to flutter away with a butterfly drawstring bag….

I recently made a tutorial for The Craft Cotton Company to make a drawstring butterfly bag using their lovely Greyson fat quarter set. 

This tutorial is available over on their blog along with lots of other great projects:

Patchwork door stop sewing tutorial 

I recently put together a tutorial to make a sort stop for The Craft Cotton Company using their lovely Just Bake fat quarter set. 

I was fighting a loosing battle against the wind and trying to keep a door open today until I remembered I had recently made this – problem solved! It also reminded me I hadn’t got around to uploading it on here so I suppose I can’t complain about the wind too much! 
The tutorial is available on their blog to make your very own:

The hooded blanket makes are continuing with this very happy mallard duck.  

There are now also two sizes in the pattern  for all the hooded blankets.

Scrambling or my Craft bag in the search of some honey is a bear – a snuggly crochet hooded bear blanket 

I’m gradually working my way through putting together all the animal blanket parts in my Craft bag and the next animal out is a bear.

Woofing and wagging its tail out of the crochet bag is a dog hooded blanket with pattern 

The hooded blanket theme is continuing here, soon as I think I’ve made them all a few more ideas pop into my head!, I do have a few other projects on the sidelines that will be making there way on here soon but I just wanted to get a few more of these blankets finished first!

Following on from the crochet hooded mouse blanket is a crafty cat.

I thought about putting a cat blanket together not long after starting on my mouse one, and i have now managed to get all the pieces finished off and attached.  I love the eye detail on this blanket, I really wanted them to stand out and using the bright green colour definitely achieved that.

 

The pattern is available over on my Etsy shop along with the mouse, frog, pig, puffin, and other animal blankets.

Perfect for a little competition – a fun bean bag target game….it’s time to get practising! 

Completely forgot to upload the link to this tutorial last year after gifting it to a friend and not being able to put it up on here until they had received it. Finally dawned on me I had forgotten after playing a game with them at the weekend. Think I need to make another one so I can get practising – I didn’t do well at all! 

This target game will provide hours of fun for all the family, and it can also be easily taken out and about with you as it all fits into a handy drawstring bag. The tutorial can be found over on the craft cotton company blog along with lots of other great tutorials:

Sneaking in another cross stitch cushion amongst all the crochet blankets! 


Crochet blankets have been taking over a bit recently so I haven’t had much time to work on my other projects, I finally managed to squeeze in a week of cross stitching and have managed to get this cushion finished and ready for gifting. 
I love this cross stitch pattern from 365 Cross Stitch Designs, volume 5 2016 and think it’s worked out really well on the green background I was wanting to use. The fabric is some I had in my stash from Ikea. I’ve got my eye on a few more cross stitch patterns from this issue too so it hopefully won’t be long until a few more cross stitch projects pop up! 
Now it’s time to get back to the crochet blankets – I have so many ideas for them I can’t see me stopping anytime soon!
