Booties

Having crocheted a pair of baby trainers for a friend I decided to see how popular they would be on my stall at my local market.

  
 I sold the pink and blue pair and had an order for a Minion pair which I have just completed. I’m thinking that I will be making more of these (once I’ve purchased more white yarn!)

  

Not Been Idle

Where does the time go to? It may be months since I last posted some photos but it doesn’t mean that I’ve not been busy!

I took advantage of some lovely dry weather that we had a couple of months ago here in the UK and have been busy painting and restyling my table at the markets and fairs.

  
I’ve also had a go at a bit of jewellery making and now have some stitch markers for sale as well as my knitted and crocheted items.

  
I will try to post a little more frequently in future 😳

Something New

Over the last few weeks I’ve been busy knitting, crocheting and sewing all sorts for my stall at the fairs and markets that I sell at.

Here are a few photos of what I’ve been making.

Keep Me Cool

Here in the UK the weather has been lovely and warm.

I decided to make myself a cool loose cotton top but couldn’t stop at one!

This was the first that I made with a Rowan fabric designed by Kaffe Fassett. I just used purchased bias binding to hem the neck and armholes. I had to put some darts at the back of the neck because I had adapted the pattern from a dress pattern and made this top a wee bit too wide!

This is the second that I made (slightly narrower so no need for any darts!) I decided to make my own bias binding for this one.

I bought the fabric from a quilting shop in the market town that my sister lives in (I stayed with her last week)

The third (yes 3!) one is made from fabric that I could not resist when I saw it at the market that I traded at last weekend!

I decided not only to make my own bias binding for this one but to also add a bit of decoration at the front.

The buttons I already had in my cupboard for part of my “yarny” creations.

Here’s hoping that I get the weather to wear them now😄
