In my creative space


today is the finished baby blanket. It was a learning experience crocheting my first blanket choosing colours and keeping up the dedication to finishing a project bigger than I've attempted in a while. Next time I'll plan a bit more when choosing the colours but other than one little mistake which I hope doesn't get found I really enjoyed seeing the blanket grow and take shape. To finish the edge I used this tutorial to pretty it up.


I'm trying to make most of the presents I give to friends children but there will be some bought too. So I can give them handmade, I'm trying to be proactive and start now by making a couple a week. Last week I made these two brooches using an idea I saw last week out at the shops. I used this tutorial for the flower and made one in each of the girls favourite colours for Christmas.

For my inspiration stop by Kirsty's.
