I just can't think of anything to do
Make a dress or bag
Get the hot glue gun out
Maybe I have too much choice, but what have you made recently that you have enjoyed

I made some jeans for DS aged 8. With Harry Potter themed stitching on the pockets.

Ooh that sounds exciting I bet 8YO was thrilled how did you do HP stitching?

Sewed some leggings using a commercial pattern but altered them to accommodate my bump. Practically living in them.
Also learnt to crochet and making a baby blanket, very proud

Crocheted a spaceman for a gift - it's the first thing I've made without a pattern and so pleased with how it turned out (although there was an awful lot of undoing and starting over)

My new range of herbal wiccan amulet pendants.

I can't make them fast enough- sold 80 this week alone!

That spaceman is fabulous and thank you for the PM Bonzo I really would love to see them.

My woven lap blanket and upcycled mini drawers using my Nanna's old costume jewellery for handles.

My Frida Kahlo skirt, made today! It's a bit tight around the arse (I didn't use a pattern) but I'm pleased.

Nearly finished my Persian tiles crochet blanket ( using the eastern jewels colour way).

SusieFlo Sat 28-Apr-18 21:37:36

These projects are gorgeous! I really love the Frida skirt and the Persian tiles blanket is the nicest crochet blanket I've ever seen.

incywincybitofa Sat 28-Apr-18 23:57:07

That is an awesome blanket.

I've turned a Billy bookcase into a 3 story doll house for dds birthday next week.

She is obsessed with barbie sized dolls and they will all fit. Still to ad a few details/decorations.its been fun.

@FabalaTheGreenGirl where did you get that amazing fabric!?

ScreamingValenta Sun 29-Apr-18 00:50:06

That skirt is fabulous.

FabalaTheGreenGirl Sun 29-Apr-18 08:43:40

The fabric is from ebay and it's by Alexander Henry (there may still be some left if you're quick). Wolf and Badger sell a skirt in this exact fabric for £159 so I'm even more chuffed, As this one was £15 for a metre of fabric!

FabalaTheGreenGirl Sun 29-Apr-18 08:43:57

Thanks folks smile

Top Frida skirt!! Nice job

hugoagogo Sun 29-Apr-18 08:48:50

That spaceman is amazing!
I have made an infinity scarf from some cute octopus print jersey sadly as soon as I put it on I look exactly like my dm shock so i probably won't wear it much.

It's not quite finished yet but I'll post some pics soon.

If you google "billy bookcase dollhouse" this is what started me off.

I'm using the Ikea doll furniture.
