Lots Of Love Crochet Wall Hanging

I was a bit worried I wouldn’t get this finished in time for Friday but after putting all other projects to one side and making sure I focused on getting this one finished I have managed to get it completed with a couple of days to go.

I hadn’t thought about adding the heart details with the tassels but when I had finished it I wanted to put on a little bit more heart detail and decided a few hearts at the bottom would add that extra detail.

The pattern for this is available over on my Etsy and Ravelry shops:

A little wall of hearts for Valentine’s Day with a heart wall hanging

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner it’s time to start bringing out all the hearts!, and this year I’ve put together a new decoration to create a little wall of hearts.

I put together this heart themed wall hanging using fabric from The Craft Cotton Company and the tutorial to make one is now available over on their blog:

Great way to use up leftover fabric scraps – Highland cow applique picture

IMG_8296

Now this make has been gifted I can now share it without spoiling any surprises! I wasn’t too sure how this make would turn out as I started with a very rough sketch of a highland cow sat on some fields and from that free-hand cut out different shapes of fabric and sewed them onto a fabric background to build up the picture.  Half way through I was starting to doubt whether I had completely messed it up but I stuck with it and am really glad I did.

Fabrics are all from The Craft Cotton Company.

Now I have success with this one its time to have a go at a few others I have in mind!.

Crochet Dachshund Table Mats

I’ve had a lot of requests for dog themed patterns and following on from my wall hangings I decided to do a pattern for some table mats – I opted again to use a dachshund pattern though I’ have got different dog pattern in mind for the next one!

Pattern is available over on my Etsy and Ravelry shop and is available in two different sizes.

Getting sporty with a crochet football blanket

I really enjoy corner to corner crochet and thought it was about time I got a few more corner to corner projects completed. First on my list was a football themed blanket. I wanted to add a bit more texture on the blanket so decided to make the footballs textured so they really stand out. To finish it off I added a white border so it would look like the white lines around the edge of a football pitch.

The pattern for this is available over on my Etsy and Ravelry shops:

There can never be too much love – add even more with a love cushion

 

IMG_8265

I think we could all do with a bit more love around and this cushion adds just that little bit more to a room.  Its would also be a perfect gift for Valentines day which is sneaking up on us.

I received some fabric from The Craft Cotton Company and the light greys and pinks were perfect as I wanted the colours to be quite subtle and didn’t want anything too pink – which is unusual for me as I am a fan of very bright colours!

The tutorial to make this is available over on The Craft Cotton Company’s blog along with lots of other great makes.

Finally Starting To Make Progress With Christmas Makes! Cross Stitch Treat Pockets Are Finally Ready!

I’ve had a craft bag full of half finished Christmas makes for what seems like forever – it’s been gradually getting fuller over the last few months and I haven’t actually managed to get much finished as I keep starting more presents!

Finally I have managed to get a make finished and ready to be wrapped up for gifting this Christmas. These treat pockets are made with a cross stitch front detail pocket using a pattern from Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine and fabric from The Craft Cotton Company.

Now I need to get cracking on finishing the rest of the things in the craft bag – it’s going to be a close one!
