September in a Nutshell


Gosh I can’t believe how long it is since I last blogged!!! Almost a month!  Well things have been pretty hectic and as my broken fingers are not mended I have been trying to catch up with all things crochet.  So I released a pattern this month, my ‘Midnight Bloom’ Handbag.  My very first handbag and made with zpagetti t-shirt yarn so two firsts.  I had great fun designing this one!

As featured in Too Yarn Cute Crochet e-Magazine this bag is the perfect fashion accessory for an evening out or a stroll in the park! Designed in black for a stylish result but why not mix and match your colours to suit any mood or outfit!

You can make this versatile bag either by using Zpagetti yarn (as shown), with homemade up cycled t-shirt yarn or with bulky or super bulky yarn for different effects. As it’s made in ‘bulky’ yarn its super quick to make -perfect for that last minute gift! Instructions are also included for the stylish motifs for that personal touch.  The pattern is now available from my stores on both Ravelry and Craftsy.

This month I also finished off a special gift for my mum and Dad’s 40th Wedding Anniversary.  It took me ages to find the perfect heart and then I remembered a pattern designed by Heritage Heartcraft called ‘Build-a-heart’ which was exactly what I was looking for.  The graphic design and framing were done for me by the fabulous Keepsakes by Rebecca if you’ve not checked out the things she does yet make sure you get yourself over there now!

Have a month of happy hooking!
