Summer Bunting

Even though summer in Australia doesn’t start until December, I thought I’d make the final of Sarah’s seasonal buntings.

I wanted to really capture the beach in the colours, which I think I did pretty well.

You can see it in the living room above the fireplace, looking snazzy.

All four seasons: spring to winter from the top.

All together, they’re quite the armful, aren’t they? The pattern I used came from a wonderful little book called Let’s Go Camping by Kate Bruning, it’s probably the crochet book I’ve used the most!

I’m planning a suuuper-long bunting next, with the Hogwarts houses’ colours to hang across Diagon Alley, which will look wonderfully festival-ish!

Anyways, see ya!

The Return of the Blogger

Hello again! I’m back from hiatus, with a completed crochet wreath to show you all.

IMG_2303_1

I actually started this prior to the hiatus, and only had one or two more flowers to make before it was finished. I was finally able to make the last flowers this weekend.

IMG_2305_1

I scavenged the flower patterns from a variety of Mollie Makes magazines, and used different colours to the ones used in the patterns.

Completely by chance, it turned out very warm-coloured, so I added a pair of blue flowers in for a cool colour.

It hangs on my new bedroom door, along with the flower garland. As my first wreath project, I’m really happy with it! I can’t wait to get started on the second one, which will be a Christmassy one.

Anyways, see ya!

A Short Hiatus

As you can probably see by the picture, my family and I are moving house very soon. This does mean that I won’t be blogging for a few weeks, as all my crafting things are packed away in boxes, ready for the move. I’ll probably still be hanging around, answering comments when I can, but there will be a hiatus on posts until everything is set up at the new house.

Thank you in advance for your patience, and I look forward to returning in full force!

See ya!

Sweet Key Chains

I finished this little key chain this morning, and I do think it’s very sweet. (Hehe! I had to.)

It’s on one of those horrible split rings that break your nails when you try to open them, however this one wasn’t that bad, probably because it’s new.

IMG_2254_1

It was a freebie with my latest Mollie Makes magazine, and when I saw it, I had to make it because it was so cheery.

Spot the real Custard Cream/s!

If you took off the loop and ring part, it could almost be a biscuit cushion for Sarah! Though perhaps a floor cushion, as it may be a little large for a couch. The kit was designed by Nikki McWilliams, who does a lot of other biscuits and cookies in a similar fashion.

Anyways, see ya!

Night Triumphant

I love churning these little badges out, they’re so quick and satisfying to make. This one is also inspired by a Sarah J Maas series.

I wanted a different coloured background, so I painted this corner of the fabric before tracing the design onto it. If you look carefully, you can see the pencil marks for the design.

IMG_2224_1

Finished and cut out, but not stuck down yet.

IMG_2240_1

And finished! The design is the insignia for the Night Court from Sarah J Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

IMG_2241_1

Because of the blue background, I used blue felt on the back instead of white.

Right in the middle, with an assortment of other blue bookish things I had in my room. (Disclaimer: The Ship of the Dead is not my copy, it belongs to a friend who generously lent it to me to read.)

The badge sits next to the ToG one, as I don’t own the ACoTaR books at the moment. They’re from books by the same author, so I figure it’s close enough.

Anyways, see ya!
