HaPpY Friday my friends!
Please let me introduce you to my
~ Liberty of London butterfly hair grips ~
I just love the way it looks like a beautiful butterfly was fluttering past
and has just landed prettily on a little head
Goodness ~ I LOVE making these
Liberty fabric is SO deelicious
that whatever is made with it
it can't fail to be
I think these fluttery little hair grips make perfect stocking fillers
maybe even a Christmas cracker gift
to pop into an advent calendar
I have packaged them in twos
Yellow & Peach
Blue & Green
You can find them in both of my shops
with free UK postage!
I feel like I've had supersonic powers this week
ha ha I wish!
but I have finished Sweet B's Rainbow scarf
We are both thrilled with it
You can read about it's beginnings here if you fancy
It's been a joy to work on in the evenings
I still consider myself very much a crochet novice
so this was perfect for me
super simple and once I got going, no brain power was required
which is exactly what I need by the time evening arrives at the moment.
I have to thank the amazing Lucy
over at Attic24
her tutorials are always fail~safe
she is to crochet
what Delia is to cooking
and she's is so generous with her time and patterns
I used her Granny blanket tutorial
using a chain of 42
and I used Drops cotton merino
I tried a LOT of borders.
I unpicked a LOT of borders.
For a while I hated borders.
I considered no borders.
It's just that I had this idea in my head
A scarf all neatly edged with a lovely border that I would be proud of
I would not be beaten.
Then I thought "Lucy!"
I came across this beautiful shell edged bag
I wasn't sure if it would work on my scarf
but with some jiggling it did!
I think that's my favourite bit.
|This was most definitely NOT my favourite bit.|
I've now started another one
with a grey background this time
I can't say who it's for as it's a Christmas gift
I'll show you when I can.
Oh and I made a toadstool
Bye for now!
Wishing you a wonderful and crafty weekend
