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.

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.

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.

Check out the pattern @ https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/liam-the-leprechaun

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

Crochet Poncho

Welcome back guys!

Thought i would share a little bit of inspiration with you all.

I have always wanted to make my own poncho. Finally got around to giving it a go. I have been loving the mustard and black colour combinations that have been big this year in the high street stores.

You can use any colour combination you like. Just choose your favourite colours and go for it.

Please see above my finished project. I am in love with it and cannot wait to get wearing it!
