1 skein project!! 😮 Crop top Crochet

Welcome back guys 😄

Spring has sprung. The weather has got a lot warmer. Summer is on the way! ☉

I love making clothing items and decided to give a crop top a go for my upcoming summer holiday it will look so cute over a bikini.

Literally took me one day to make and only using 1 skein of 50 g yarn. To me that’s pretty awesome! I will be on the look out for more 1 skein projects to share with you all.

Check out the pattern below 👇

Ceramic painting

Hi guys 🖐

I had wanted to try painting ceramics. As you can see I decided to give it a go. I had played around with the idea of using brushes and paint, but with the detail I wanted I didn’t feel I would of had enough control over the paintbrush.

I then discovered the magical world of paint markers! I will leave a link below of the markers I purchased. They are great quality and very reasonably priced.

I wanted to either paint my own mug or a set of tea and sugar pots. Of course I made both 😂

I doodled little objects on each pot and wrote a quote on each one. The mug is inspired by the pixar movie up! I love how they turned out and they are pride of place on my kitchen counter.

Sealant then needs to be applied to protect the paint. I used mod podge dishwasher safe. So when they need washed I will have no problems with paint pealing off or cracking. This is an amazing product and would highly recommend purchasing to seal any of your ceramic art. Link below to the product.

Happy crafting my lovelies.

I look forward to more ceramic painting in the near future 😘

Crochet jumper

Hi guys 🖐

Wanted to share a crochet project I completed quite some time ago my first piece of clothing I made.

I can’t recall a pattern being used I think I was watching YouTube videos on crocheting jumpers and i measured to fit.

Give it a go watch a few videos for an idea on how many chains to start with and where to position the arms.

Just a little inspiration 😘

Liam the leprechaun -crochet

Happy St Patrick’s day ☘

This is Liam the leprechaun. Loved every minute of crocheting this little guy. He is on showcase all year through not just for St Patricks day in my house, he is way too cute to hide away.

The detail in this amigurumi project was crazy, which why i think he turned out so amazing. There was a lot of thought and effort put into this pattern. I adjusted the pattern slightly to suit my own style you can work it up whatever way you like also.

As you can see below he has been on his adventures in the beautiful Irish countryside. Up to mischief and searching for rainbows 🌈

Mandala Deer painting

Welcome back! 🖐

*Disclaimer* You could literally come across anything on this blog haha.

Crafts I love it all 😍❤

I was a very lucky girl at Christmas this year. Santa brought me an easal along with some blank canvases.

My goal is to fill my walls in my home with my own art. So let’s get the ball rolling!

I have started with a deer head. Sketched the outline and filled it with mandala style doodles, and of course used every colour acrylic paint I could get my hands on. The madder the better I say! 😂

Really pleased with the outcome. Check it out below ⬇

I hope this gives you all the inspiration to get the pencils out and for the creative juices to flow.

Now to decide where to hang this beauty. I will be uploading my drawings/paintings as I go along. So please hit follow to never miss an upload.

Have fun my lovelies xx
