Simple sewing

Still working though the stack of Mollie Makes mini project kits that I've amassed. This little dachshund stuffed toy was super simple - perfect for a poorly elbow.

Mollie makes crafting

As a start back into crochet I've been digging through the masses of Mollie Makes free projects that have been building up over the last couple of years. I found the kit for this little cherry brooch and I'm so glad I did as I loved making it.

Easter time

Because I'm not supposed to be using my arm yet I've been unable to make anything to celebrate Easter this year. So with Sam's school Easter bonnet parade coming up this week I dusted off the impressively tall marching hat style bonnet I made him last year - restuck the daffodil centres and cut a slit up the back so he could just about jam the whole thing on his head again.

Now I love this hat - I had great fun making it last year and I was so proud of how it turned out. Sam however does not share my feelings for it - it has to fit very tightly to prevent the whole thing slipping off as it is very weighty, so every time he wears it he complains bitterly of how much it hurts...

Best do something more head friendly next year because if I get this hat out again Sam may well call the Childline on me.
