Cosy tops for tots….

June 8, 2015

The annual appeal to make warm cosy items for children living in poverty in New Zealand is on.  This year the cosy item is “Jumpers” size 18 months to 4 years.

I have recently completed 6 jumpers and dropped them into the local Knit World store to help with the annual target of 1000 jumpers…

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!
