Taa daa: Crochet Embroidery Hygge shawl/wrap

It's a wrap!  Yep, corny pun but I've been waiting to use it ever since I started this wrap!  I finished it spot on time, within the last week of the CAL too, so I'm pretty impressed with myself as it's the first time that I've actually finised a CAL within the time frame!

fold & go

A cute little bowl that folds flat for easy use.
I only made the small size but isn't it just the cutest thing!
I plan to make some bigger with waxed fabric (or vinyl) because they'll be perfect for picnics!

Also, they are super easy to make and don't take much fabric or time, so go ahead and make a couple for yourself too!  Get the pattern here.

...it's bigger on the inside...

So what do you do when you discover your six year old, who is in grade 1, is the only kid in his class without a pencil case (because he never told you he needed one)??  You make him one of course!

a bunny dress for my Laney

I'm super proud to show you one of the dresses that made recently and with Easter so close, I though it was the perfect time for it!

Thinking craft, what are you doing?

What to do now, what to do in a hour and what should I do in the afternoon?
I have to admit, I'm always thinking craft.
Do I have a knitting project ready to go for the car? Do I have a 'no-think' crochet project to work along this 'think a lot' crochet project?
This is my current grab & work pile but it's not all of my current wips (works in progress) that I have at the moment.

Double Zip Gear Bag

A very proud show & tell for you because I'm super chuffed with this bag that I just finished!
Would you believe that it was so easy to make? Yes, it looks hard but the pattern was so well written that I breezed through making it!

Laney's little bag

 
We often have bad cases of FOMO in our house, you know .. Fear Of Missing Out .. so when Joe got a new bag for school, I had to make sure Laney had something just as special.

All the pretty yarn


A quick post to show you that I received my (very pretty) yarn pack today for the Hygge CAL (more info here).
The yarn is so squishy and scrummy.  I got the yarn from here and it only took 2 weeks from the UK to Tasmania Australia
.. meanwhile, I'm still awaiting a parcel that I ordered 2.5 weeks ago from Perth, Western Australia!!

Wide Open Backpack

Ever stood in one space day after day wishing there was a better solution to what you were watching, I have. Every school day, I stood there and patiently waited whilst Joe struggled to shove his stuff into his (store bought) school back pack as the openings were never wide enough for his 5 year old self to cope with. So this year, when it came to buy Joe a new backpack, I wanted something that opened up big & wide and this is what he ended up with and yes, I made it!
