Day 4 Doodle cloth

This is done exactly as per instructions but looks nothing like the picture of the end result. I shall have to do some investigating as to why!

Day 1 Doodle cloth

Blank! Feeling inspired but a little daunted at my first one. Going to try to do a little every day. I might end up posting a few days at a time as I get forgetful.

First bespoke ornament

DD has a home for the first time this Christmas so it was time to get crafting some unique things for her. This is the name of her little Welsh home. It has names on the other side. Its ceramic done with Sharpie & glitter varnish.

Started feeding the cake

All made and ready to pickle in booze!

Loyalty card taming

Saw this on another blog but they had a fancy hole punch. This was achieved with a bradawl and a little work. Check on the back you are avoiding barcodes, magnetic strips etc. The keyring needs to be a slim one if you are making the holes yourself or you'll damage the cards too much. My purse is so much slimmer now.

Crocheted cord

After reading this today, I thought I'd have a go. Mine looks a bit different (no idea why!) but it does look like it'll tangle less.

Repurposed nightie

I needed a new short slip and the ones in the shop were horrrible material & dowdy colours. So hey presto after a hack away at a charity shop buy (£1 and there's some material left) here it is. All flippy and pretty if it shows occasionally.
