Hello - this is my first time posting in this area. I am just starting to get back into crafting and I am feeling very unsure about what sort of things to make/ try. I have a blanket to make for a baby which will be fine but after then I need to make some seat pads etc
Some of you sound very talented and I would love to know what your favourite thing was to make and if you have a photo of it? I am really excited to get cracking but waiting for pay day to stock up on my resources but am gagging to get started!!!
It worked out cheaper than paying for someone else to make it, I believe it ended up being around £200 pounds in total. The silk was on offer which was fantastic! It took me about 6 months to make, but I was working around my back problems, so could only sew for small amounts of time. DH put the very last stitch into it
Excellent value and so much nicer to have it exactly how you wanted. Well done. I wonder what every one else's major achievement has been...of course I will have to start a thread on what the worst thing is they made
The best things are the cushions we knelt on in church on our wedding day to commemorate my husband's late parents (a surprise for my husband), my wedding headlight and bag, and the two portraits of family that I made recently, in beads I'll try and get pictures up later on.
mine is'nt quite as exciting but It hink my best makes have been the toys I have crocheted for the DC. There are some pics on my profile i think. They are much loved and I think they will be a treasured keepsake from childhood if they last long enough
Nickelbabe your dress is gorgeous!! Wish I had had the guts to make my wedding dress. However I did sell it on afterwards which made me feel better.
I have been making applique cushions for my friend's babies recently. But most proud of the cushions I made for my Mum and my Aunts out of my Grandpas Cotton Handkerchiefs and applique bits from my Granny's massive stash (3 large chests of drawers full of material and bits plus tins and boxes etc).
Have not taken any pictures but Poppy Treffry has been my biggest inspiration and this book is fab!
