Crochet Crafting

So it’s been a while since I last blogged but time seems to of run away with me again. I have been very busy though and have a few crafty makes to share!

Way back when I was a small girl, my grandparents used to take me camping. I decided in my young wisdom that I needed protecting from the cold nights and decided to make myself a blanket. I can’t remember who it was but I collared somebody into teaching me how to crochet. I started making a small blanket but didn’t seem to know when to stop so I crocheted and crocheted and crocheted until this was finished!

After I had finished this I just sort of went into my teenage years, crochet wasn’t cool and to be fair things amongst my friends haven’t really changed. You could say I lead two lives. Although they are now merging with an “I don’t care what you think attitude” to anyone that has a negative opinion on hat I am doing and hoping to achieve.

Anyway! I decided to dig out a hook (ok so I treated myself to a new one) and have another go at Crocheting. This was mainly due to the amazing elephant that Emma Lemonade had created for my son. So inspirational. So I started and decided that I would try a lovely little cosy home for my iphone. What do you think? Not bad for my first attempt!

Then I started to go full steam ahead, pulling out books and trying a few things and I accidentally (something else went wrong) made a flower which I thought could be made into a brooch. I had amazing feedback and these little beauties were born!

I have already sold 2 which I am so excited about and they were posted off today! I also have a purple and a green that I am going to try. I’m so happy with how these have come out that I am wearing mine with pride!

If any of you lovely people are interested in buying one either for yourselves or as a present they are priced at £4.50 each plus p&p. Please email me at lisarye@hotmail.co.uk if you would like one made for you 🙂

As always thank you for reading and have an amazing rest of your week!

  1. I’m really impressed with your blanket Lisa, was that your very first project? Wow!
    The flower brooches are lovely too. Is this the start of a new business venture?! x

    • Why thank you Beth! Yes the blanket was my first project and I was a bit like Forrest Gump I just kept going!

      I’m really enjoying crocheting so I will definitely include some bits in my Etsy shop 🙂

  2. Oh I totally know how you feel about leading two lives. Everyone around me always poked fun at the knitting and sewing and baking but since I changed my replies to “I’d like to see you make something better” everyone has since changed their tune and more often than not I now get asked for advice or help as many of those who made fun are now giving various types of crafting a go!

    Loving your flowers! So pretty. Well done with the crocheting. I’m looking forward to trying it this summer…I’ve heard it’s addictive! 😀 xx

    • It’s hard isn’t it. I sort of suppressed it for tears as it wasn’t “cool” but now I’ve got an “I’m too old to care” attitude! If they don’t like it so be it.

      Thank you for your kind comment about my flowers xx

  3. Your flowers are so pretty! They remind me of the pansies that will be flowering soon.

    You’re obviously a natural at crochet, I’m looking forward to seeing what else you make 🙂
