Monthly make...

I'm in the monthly make hosted by the lovely Annie, of  "the felt fairy"

I made this pretty pink blanket for Alexa, it's keeping her beautiful dollies warm,

This dollie comes with her own "baby" in a sling, isn't she gorgeous??

As I love brooches I made a couple out of this "speckled" wool, to this one I added a lovely "seeds" button and fastened it to my cardigan

and I made another one for my winter coat but with a pretty blue striped button

it's a good way of using up ends of balls of wool and also lovely buttons.

Not much to show for a whole month I know, but I received this book on wednesday so hopefully next month I'll have some hand knitted/crochet  flowers to show you

Bye for now

Love Lucey xx

Take care and looking forward to your makes next month!

Lovely makes! I have that book too! I love it, used this Christmas to make little flowers for toppers on all my christmas presents. The instructions are clear and easy, although I've only attempted the easier designs so far as I'm quite new to crochet. :) x

Dolly is so lucky. Very pretty girly pink!
I have that book too, but I love it so much that I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all and haven't made a thing yet! Complications of being a serial crafter I guess! Looking forward to seeing what you choose to make.
