Crochet Lego tissue box cover

I don’t think its possible to ever have too much Lego around – ok apart from when its on the floor and gets stepped on…Luckily with this there will be no sharp edges to harm your feet and it will brighten up your plain tissue boxes.

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:

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.

IMG_1098IMG_1090img_0374-2

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.
