A Bit of Crochet, a bit of sewing

I missed yesterday's post, my hubby needed the computer for work and I was out of steam with no hint of a bright idea to post. I won't get a chance to have too much computer time again tonight so I thought I had better get in quick and post a bit of what I've been up to lately.


My two girls are heading to a Masterchef birthday party tomorrow and the birthday girl is saving to buy herself an Ipod touch so I thought I would make her a little case to keep her new gadget in. It was super quick to make and a great tutorial to follow. I'll give her a bit of money as well in her card but thought I might make her some sweet bows and a couple of these crochet hair scrunchies. The bow was pretty quick to crochet and would also be a great Christmas present idea too I think!


On Sunday it's my sister-in-laws baby shower so I wanted to add a couple of little things to the blanket I crocheted. I firstly finished off the last of the journals I started back here. I then made a simple solid granny wash cloth using some Sugar and Cream cotton I bought from here. And since I had bought some pretty fabric a while ago to make her booties but haven't gotten around to it making them yet I decided to make a bib using the fabric. I first saw the bib pattern here and followed the link to The Perl Bee and sewed one up. I wish that I was more of a sewer when my two were little, handmade bibs are pretty sweet.

Have you got many plans for the weekend? I hope that you have some beautiful weather to enjoy and have lots of fun times.

See you tomorrow:)


P.S. I'm sorry for not popping by your lovely blogs lately but I will be sure to stop by this weekend:)

  4. What lovely and thoughtful gifts. I particularly love the bib - I'll have to check out that pattern. I'm just learning how to use a sewing machine so I'm looking for some small projects to get me started.

  5. Hi Catherine I totally agree with what you say about Bibs and am in the same boat wishing I sewed or was even aware of the gorgeous array of handmade original items available.
