Crochet Blueberries

I have been (very slowly!) building up a collection of crochet play fruit for my children.

My latest offerings are two little blueberries!

I used this pattern/tutorial - but I did sc instead of hdc (US terms) in the final round so that the sticky-up bits (technical term!) weren't quite so sticky-up!

crochet fruit and veg

Above you can see them with the rest of the fruit and veg I have crocheted.  I think they look great together!

You can see details on the other items at the links below:




Now to decide on the next fruit or veg item to make!  It might take me a year!

Makebox Velvet Needle-Felted Mushroom Decorations

My first make of 2024 are these gorgeous velvet mushrooms from a Makebox kit.  (I can't actually see the kit on their website anymore - I've had it about a year.)

First of all you needle felt the mushroom shape - as you can see below:

Then you cover it with a circle of sumptuous stretch velvety material!

The kit said to add french knots on the top in white embroidery thread - but I decided to sew beads that I already had to the top, which I'm really pleased with!

I have since threaded some cotton through the top to hang these, as they are designed to be decorations for the Christmas tree.  For now, however, they are hanging in my craft-room looking delightful!

I'm so pleased with them - I really love them!

Creation Consolidation - 2023!

I'm finally getting round to doing my usual post, collating my makes from the year before!  As is becoming a bit of a theme in recent years, I didn't make that much... but here we go!

More creations than last year - so fingers crossed I can improve on that again this year!  Interesting that the vast majority of things I've made have been Christmas related - the festive season must make my creative juices flow!

If you are interested, here are my consolidation posts from previous years:

I didn't do a round-up for years before that, but you can see other finished items at the below links:

Here's to a crafty 2024!
