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:

Got to keep a close eye on these mischievous little monsters (crochet storage basket monsters!)

The Christmas countdown is on (how can it only be a week away!!) and I am so pleased I have got these little monsters finished – the last week before Christmas always seems to go by so quickly so I am glad to have got these finished so early on as I still have a load more makes to get finished before Tuesday!

Making these has definitely made me smile – think I may need to do a another pattern for some more of these!

This flamingo cushion will always stand out from the crowd!

I’ve had the idea for a flamingo cushion for a while now and when I received some Essential Trends fat quarters in pink by The Craft Cotton Company I knew they would be perfect for making one with.

It was great fun putting this cushion together and I have kept him sat on my craft desk as it makes me smile whenever I look at it – I will have to make some to go in some other rooms!

The tutorial to make your own is available over on The Craft Cotton Company blog :

Take a journey out into space with a space themed wall hanging

When I first saw the Star Gazer fat quarter set by The Craft Cotton Company I knew straight away what to make with it – an appliqué wall hanging, the fabric colours and patterns were perfect.

I opted to have a space rocket travelling through a star filled space surrounded by planets and stars and am really pleased with how it’s turned out.

Two little crochet monsters have quietly snuck out my craft bag

I have had the Edwards Imaginarium by Kerry Lord for a while now and have finally got round to making some of the fantastic creations from it, it took me ages to decide which to pick for my makes as I like so many of the different options it was hard to pick!  As there were just so many I liked I decided to make two (for now!).

For the first I decided to use a Arran wool which would give me a slightly bigger monster than if i had used DK which I normally use for these.  This monster uses the combination H:18, A:3, and F:5.

For the second I opted for a variegated chunky wool which I have had for a while now and have been waiting for the right project for it.  This monster uses the combination H:20, A:9, and F19 (I didn’t cut the loops as i liked how it looked).

 

Cant wait to make a few more of these!!
