Sawdust – Kinda.

There is sawdust in an arena, even one of this size.

However, it’s not in the form you’d usually find it.

There’s a simple chain across the entrance, and the sides cover photography of everyone, from our largest members…..

…to our smallest.

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, so I reckon it looks fabulous. I had the idea of putting the roof over it to prevent the ‘sawdust’ getting dusty, so now it kinda looks like one of those dome arenas, which is so cool!

Anyways, see ya!

Hats Away

I also recently crocheted Sarah a sun hat.

The bit that’s on her head is all double crochet (single crochet in America) and the brim is treble crochet (double crochet in America).

It was really windy outside, and the hat nearly blew off!

Sarah decided to hold onto the hat for this last picture. 🙂 This is the last of the summer stuff, so now we should really be getting into autumn crafts now. About time, too, seeing as it’s currently April.

Anyways, see ya!

Soft TARDIS, Warm TARDIS

‘Little pair of slippers! Happy TARDIS, Sleepy TARDIS, curl up in a ball.’ (With them on.)

(Taken by my Grandpa – thank you!)

Yes! I made myself a pair of TARDIS slippers! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while and I’m so happy I did.

I sewed black fake leather onto the sole, to match the background of the Police Box sign.

They’re so comfy, and I can walk around in them super quietly and scare people. This winter’s going to be fun…. But you really should make yourself a pair of slippers. Crochet ones are exceptionally comfy, even more than store-bought ones. No matter what the tag says. 😀

See ya!

Carry On

I can remember making this bag – I did it all the morning we left for the beach.

IMG_9104_1

I made it with hot glue, which may be partly why it was so quick to whip up.

IMG_9106_1

It’s quite large too – all these clothes were in it, with room to spare.

IMG_9107_1

As you can see, it’s quite roomy inside, where you can also see the milk bottle caps that give it it’s structure.

And it also folds up relatively small for easy transportation. It’s almost like a large duffel bag, but in a much nicer print than most duffel bags these days.

See ya!

Beachwear

I also made this kimono shawl to take to the beach.

IMG_9096_1

Big, bold florals do suit the beach lifestyle, don’t you think?

IMG_9097_1

I made it from an old shirt that was too small for me.

IMG_9098_1

I used some lace ribbon for the edging, and I think it finishes it off really nicely.

IMG_9100_1

Sarah was actually standing on one foot for this picture. Defying gravity like a pro!

IMG_9103_1

The way it flares out at the bottom almost makes it look like a cape, or an epic trench coat. Maybe that’s what I should make next, a trench coat……

See ya!
