Crochet is so popular at the moment. It just seems to be getting bigger and bigger. We talked about our own experiences a couple of weeks ago. This very inspiring book is tempting us to get our hooks out with all the joyful little projects it contains.
There are small projects to make in a weekend like these mug cosies
and little trinket boxes
and cute pincushions.
We are a bit obsessed with the possibilities for re-cycling jam jars at the moment and these covers are great.
This beaded jug cover is fantastically nostalgic and an easy way to get yourself into using beads in your crochet.
You can even create your own artwork. Quick and easy crochet flowers on a colourful crocheted background would be so quick to make for your home or as a gift.
There are so many ideas you can use for making soft furnishings for your home if you have a little more time to invest.
This tablecloth looks amazing.
Or how about a chic lampshade.
There are plenty of cushions and a throw too.
This striped tea cosy is so simple to make with no shaping involved.
This book is choc full of things to do and you can make some useful items for when you’re on the move such as this wave patterned tote bag a very roomy looking shoulder bag
and this Laptop cover which has interlaced strips and no shaping so should be easy enough to achieve with very little experience.
If you’re looking for fund raising ideas how about making up some of the small projects in the vibrant colours to add to your summer fete stall? These jewellery ideas and pretty bunting would work a treat.
All of the projects in this book are crocheted in Sirdar 4ply Cotton which comes in a range of vibrant colours and is 100% mercerised cotton with a gorgeous sheen.
