In a crochet making frenzy
Well it’s been far too long since my last craft blog post and I really must apologise. I have been very busy making and planning and doing hands on stuff rather than documenting. It’s now time to document and show you what I’ve been doing.
Since my very successful debut crochet stall on Xmas Eve in Brixton market, I’ve had lots of very useful feedback as well as selling lots of produce that I needed to replace. The best sellers were the fairies, dogs, finger puppets and baby slippers.
So it’s a fond farewell to:
Oh I just love fairies. And crochet. And crochet fairies. Sigh.
Did I forget to mention that I love dogs too? And crochet? And crochet dogs?
I mean, just how could you not fall in love with those puppies? Those lovely woofy crochet creatures all went to very loving homes. They’re all properly house trained and won’t cost you anything in upkeep. You could take them to the park if you wish ( you can leave the pooper scooper at home!)
The crochet baby slippers really made an impact and you can see why. They’re just sooo cute.
There were a few hats that were sold too, all in all it was a very successful debut stall. The feedback I got was that I needed to make more items for baby boys and for small babies. So I’ve been busy with that in the forefront of my head.
So this is the result.
Told you I'd been busy!
That is a box of shoes and a toy or two… I’ve since made hats to go with it.
The shoes are worth showing individually. So here they are:

Crochet crochet crochet crochet… I love crochet. There’s more to come, oh yes, much more.
That’s enough for now. The next post will be about hats.
Please pop over to my shop Crochetbrightandbeautiful to have a look at( and purchase at really good prices) my latest creations.
You are guaranteed to be buying a very original gift for your baby or toddler ( or young at heart) made with heaps of care and love and totally unique. No piece I make is ever the same. ( Call it a low boredom threshold).
I don’t know about you, but I sense a change in the air. Are you feeling it too? I’m sensing people’s growing disinterest in the corporate label mass production thing and a growing appreciation for the human touch and the hand made.
I’m loving it… * whistles*
