May 18, 2015

Up cycled teddy becomes Paddington….

May 6, 2015

Little Miss almost 9 is Paddington Bear mad…so I thought why not up-cycle an old teddy into an adorable Paddington Bear toy.

This bear is not quite finished, he just needs his little brown tag “Please look after this Bear”…yet to come….

MMMMmmmm I like it…I think many more upcycled teddys to be made into Paddington’s in the near future….

Meema Mermaid….

May 4, 2015

Sometimes I really surprise myself!  I made this cute Meema Mermaid crochet look alike doll as a thank you gift for someone beautiful….swimming off to be delivered next week.  I did not use a pattern, but will make a few and see if I can write a pattern as I go for the future.

I am now whipping up a number of tails w togs as these will be perfect to cover up all those unclothed barbies lying around the house!

Retro Blanket Caravan Bling…

May 4, 2015

I made this retro afghan granny square blanket for a gorgeous little caravan attending the Beach Hop 2015 Whangamata NZ.  It took quite a few weeks and turned out fabulous.  I am very pleased with it.

I really like that the size progressed better for fit to a Queen Bed size by starting with a rectangle in the middle rather than a simple square.  I love these blankets as they can be done over time with just a little bit of crochet in my handbag at any time, then just a lot of crochet or sewing together to complete the look.
