As well as some previous crochet projects I had done, I would like to share with you some other projects of mine.
I latch hooked this Totoro for my partner over 2 years ago now! I love it and so does he! It took me forever, and if you think crocheting on public was troublesome, you have seen nothing until you have seen someone trying to make a rug on a bus! I spent so long making this and only managed to finish it in time for Christmas because my numpty of a partner managed to miss his last train home the day before Christmas eve!
I made this circle skirt shortly after the first ever Great British Sewing Bee. it was a bit of an undertaking and I struggled with hemlines, zips, and binding, but I am still proud of it. I don’t think I did a bad job!
Another skirt I made, this time with box pleats and an awesome bow on front. this skirt is much neater than my first attempt. I would highly recommend that if you are going to make yourself a box pleat skirt, you should buy a fabric with checks or squares, as this makes it easier to measure out. you should also plan your folds before you start.
This is an alteration I did. The dress on the left cost me £1 in a charity shop. I bought it for a costume I needed for a 50’s style revamp of the Merry Wives Of Windsor. I decided one day to get the scissors out and modify it and this is what I came up with. its not technically brilliant, but its pretty cute!
And Finally, the most functional and most frequently used of my past projects, this Tea Cosy. It took me forever as I had to stuff every diamond before I sewed them! But it does its job really well!
