My Favourite Finds April 2015

I've found some gorgeous projects this month to share with you - let's get started!

These Paper Peonies from Ash and Crafts are just amazing. They are made of crepe paper, can you believe it?

Ashley has provided full step by step instructions with loads of photos if you fancy having a go.

Isn't this just lovely? I actually pinned this ages ago but saw someone else linking to it on facebook the other day and revisited Atty's amazing blog. If you crochet at all it is a fabulous blog to spend an hour or 3!
I need to work on keeping my crochet edges straight as they tend to wander if I'm not really careful so this would be a great project to practice. 

Bev at Flamingo Toes makes the most beautiful embroidery and appliqué loveliness and this hoop is no exception.
There is a very detailed tutorial too with loads of hints and tips to help you make something similar.

Made by Chrissie D is a fab blog that features mostly beautiful quilts and other sewing projects but this knitted tray really caught my eye.
Chrissie provides the pattern and full instructions (for free!) and uses a really chunky wool. I'm thinking it would probably work as a great stash buster project too and you could easily use 2, 3 or even 4 strands of wool to get a similar effect. 

There you have it, my favourite finds this month - what a lot of loveliness there is out there on the ol' world wide web!
