Bag with yo yo's on

I have made this this afternoon ready to give my daughter when she comes home from school, its made with calico fabric and then lined inside with Laura Ashley lemon colour inside, it has four fabric yo yo's sewn on the front of the bag.Luv them yo yo's, made a batch of cards with mini ones on, just one sewn on to some calico with a green stem going down and then stuck to the front of the card.

i can do it...

... i can crochet, well just the basic stitches but i feel a granny blanket is soon to be started.
This is a dish cloth made using white cotton dishcloth yarn.


Here is my first felt soft toy and im going to give him away, thats if anyone wants him lol, or if anyone reads this.So just add your comment...
I will leave it until Friday and then draw the winner.

knitte frog

Here she is...........

This is her sitting down...
and laying down flat. Really enjoyed knitting this, there is a whole family of them to do, this one is the girl and she should have had a pink skirt on, but i only had the lemon in cotton wool and as the green is cotton i had to use the same for the skirt. I think she came out quite cute, my daughter will love her and a neighbour has already asked me to make one for her grandaughter, so of the get clicking.

Today i tried my hand at amigurumi, i can't crochet so this is my first time at making one of these, i bought the pattern from a very helpful seller on ebay under the name of simpleartsplanet, not only are her patterns so cheap and sent straight to your email she also sent me very clear instructions of how to crochet. So here is my first go.

Hi, just posting a pic of something i made tonight, not got much done today as i have been on the school trip to tycross zoo. So heres the pics and if anyone would like the pattern email me and i'll let you know where it is.

The first pic is of the bag itself which is a bag with pockets on the front, the second pic is how the mags will fit inside.

Before and after pics, i bought this blue frame with the horrible print at just a pound, the frame is lovely wood, so thought hey that would paint up nice, and it did.Painted it brown first and then a couple of coats of white, sanded it in places to give it the distressed look and here it is. My big plans for the pics is to yake a black and white pic of eachof the three kids seperate and then cut the pics in hearts and the title is going to say "made with love" on torn paper. Will post more pics when finished.

Also painting up some rolling pins as gifts for the teachers as leaving gifts. Anyone want one i am going to be selling them. I have one in my kitchen saying "Sarah's Kitchen" and everyone loves it and wants one.
