Show your (craft)work

Incorporating hobbies, computer games, Verm's Interesting Links and anything else you can think of excluding football and other spectator sports because these belong in the Sport section, but allowing sports you play yourself with your own body as that counts as a pastime.

The light Garland!

I’ve been at a craft cafe today and I made two ‘moon catchers’ with a view to photographing and popping online for orders.

I sold both within minutes of making so I’ve only got crappy pictures I managed to take there :))

So the girls wanted to get a family friend 3 year old ‘a raspberry cos she loves them’. The Jellycat one was out of our budget but I found this crochet pattern instead. Her brother is getting the rabbit in a sleeping bag.

I struggled with the face of the doll. I promise all previous attempts were even worse than this one. :lol:

Those moon catchers are beautiful, Kleio. Will you make more?

I love your crochet, wendy. Well, maybe not the doll so much! The bunny’s face is very sweet though.

I’ve spent the evening cutting out felt shapes ready to assemble them, it’s a kit to make the Twelve days of Christmas (except there are thirteen items). I think they might be finished next Christmas…

Everybody’s crafting is lovely!

I went to an art class this evening and we did Lino cutting and mono printing. I got blue on my yellow when I was walking back. :lg:

Yes definitely, they're a lot of fun to make.

The raspberry is excellent - those stitches take ages!

Your Lino printing is so crisp Cerise!

I absolutely love Lino printing and particularly like the robin. They’re all good, though.

I’ve made a pear decoration, I bought the kit last year (Twelve days of Christmas) as I figured they’re small and quick, I’ve done nothing really in the way of embroidery before. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by just how many there are to do! There are thirteen because there’s a partridge and a pear for the first day. I would really like to finish them even if it takes me all through December.

I also cobbled together a manger while on a conference call yesterday, but I’m pleased given so little thought went into it! I will make a felt Jesus to go in it and have some hay for bedding.

The pear is so cute!

These reusable face scrubbies are dead quick and easy.

I got up this morning and did some mending and finishing. I also made a draught excluder stuffed with P’s old T-shirt’s and an ironing board cover minus the slime-ruined bit. :mrgreen:

The penguin top is for me, and I made my penguin-mad sister an infinity scarf with leftover fabric.

The girls have got a dress and tunic (Elvis and Sproglette respectively) in the gingerbread house fabric, with a dress for our friends’ little girl as part of her Christmas present.

I really enjoyed my mosaic workshop, the instructor was again excellent and went off on a lovely rant about Boris Johnson at one point.

This is what I made (difficult to photograph due to either being in shadow or horribly reflective, so I might take a daytime one also).

Blimey.some seriously professional crafts going on.
I was there yesterday, Hippy and made a ring. I had such a lovely day. Hard to get a decent photograph as well. These are from the tutors Instagram

Wow! The mosaic and the ring are fab.

Will you use the mosaic as an inset in tiles or something else, Hippy?

Thanks Wendy.

I would love to but it's quite expensive for the day. It was sort of a treat for me and a friend to do together. She wants to make her partner a wedding ring but the next two sessions (Feb and march 22) are fully booked.

I would love to find somewhere cheaper. They do a more reasonable 6 week course so I might consider that after my dress making course.

Having look at the price of tools, I can see why courses are also expensive!

I picked up a lino print kit at the weekend but am saving it (and the two I bought online afterwards from the same retailer*) for the Christmas holidays, I think.

*cosy craft club - a monthly subscription that is a different craft each week. I'm tempated to sign up next year but for now picked up a brush lettering kit and a block printing kit at reduced prices.
