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!
