Seamwork Christina (Bonus variation)

I bought some gorgeous 100% cotton woven fabric from Coalville Fabrics that is in the style of a comic book strip with “pop” words that you would see in superhero comics. I thought it would be nice as a skirt but don’t often wear prints so was cautious. I decided to do an Instagram poll and turning it into a…

Pineapple T-shirt

The Made for Mermaids Avery is one of those patterns that was bought without a specific project in mind…I mean aren’t most crafty purchases like that? This summery fabric is from BST fabrics (not listed on their website) – I found this beauty hiding among the stretch fabrics – you may remember it from my Teenie Beanie post. This version…

Crochet Vagina

Hopefully you’ve read the above warning! I was talking with a friend who is a midwife about how upset people get over body parts such as breasts (there was an upsurge in angry Facebook posts a while back). Naturally, we decided it would be funny to crochet a mini vagina that could possibly be used as a keyring. I didn’t…

Cheeky Undies

I’ve seen some gorgeous underwear being made in sewing groups that I decided to try and make my own. When Made for Mermaids released their Victoria pattern, I bought it straight away. I got the galloon lace from eBay – I can’t find a link to the exact lace I used but the link will take you to the eBay…

Unicorn Basket

Remember that project I took apart in this post? I used the leftovers and a tiny bit more to make this cutie. The pattern is free! Yarn is Drops Paris (100% cotton, Aran weight) with the recommended hooks for the pattern. The flowers were harder to do than I thought they would be, I must admit! Think I’m going to…

Giraffe – Simplicity 2613

Morning everyone! I’m slowly getting photos sorted of the items I have made since we’re finally getting some good light with the sunshine. I made this for my friend and her new bundle of joy back in December. It’s the giraffe from Simplicity 2613. I used a yellow dot minky that I’ve had in my stash for years, blue safety…

Beauty Pads

I’ve been sorting through my WIPs, I definitely need to tackle that pile this year. I came across a WIP that I started with a specific intention but it’s no longer useful so pulled it apart to repurpose. The yarn is drops paris which is 100% cotton, Aran weight. It started life like the striped object you see in the…

Cross Stitch, Model Stitch

Gustavo

My first cross stitch finish of the year was a model stitch for Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks called Gustavo. DMC threads were used (1 over 1), not sure on what the exact fabric was but definitely aida.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas to all of those who celebrate it and I hope the coming New Year brings you good health and happiness!  Here’s a little stitch from a magazine! I am running out of storage for my crafting. I am adding too much stash and not spending much (if any) time using it. I have counted at least 15 started…

Christmas Stockings

I have had two Christmas stocking panels sitting in my stash for a good few years now. I had always put off making them as I had mistakenly thought quilting would be involved and it was not long after I had made a few quilted duffel bags. I was quilted out. It was so long ago, I can’t even find…
