Handmade fruit cage

Hi fellow gardeners 🖐

Check out our handmade cage to protect the strawberries and blueberry plants. I am overjoyed and proud of how it turned out. Made from branches that we had cut from an overgrown tree in our garden. We hope this will keep the birds at bay from pecking at the flowers and fruits.

Harry Potter Amigurumi crochet series

Welcome back crafters 🖐

Wanted to show you my latest makes. My niece is a massive Harry Potter fan (myself included 😂). Her birthday was fast approaching so I had decided to look up a pattern for Harry to wip up quickly as I had a month to master it.

I searched the Web and finally came across – daisyandstorm.com where I found the whole Harry Potter crochet series.

I started with Harry –

I made his glasses out of electrical cable, striped the plastic off and bent the copper wire with pliers. Twisting it to form the shape of the glasses. His wand was made from wood carved to make a small wand.

She absolutely loved the gift, her appreciation and love for Harry made me want to make another one of the characters to add to her collection.

Christmas was fast approaching and I wanted to wip up another character in time. I decided Hermione would be next –

I was happy with how she turned out and my niece was very impressed 🤗 I will continue in this series crocheting the remaining characters. I am thinking Dumbledoor will be my next project.

I will be posting an update as I go along with this series, so follow my blog to receive an email notification of when I upload 😀👍

Keep crafting! ❤
