Welcome to Handmade Monday, our link up for all things handmade. Crafts, decor ideas and recipes are all welcome here: if it’s handmade then we are happy for you to share it. This is a great place to find a few new creative ideas and inspiration too.
The weather has turned proper chilly here in the UK just now, autumn has arrived with a vengeance. Our cold, wet, windy weather is nothing compared to the hurricanes and flooding several other parts of the world though so we are thinking of everyone badly affected of course.
However I was very glad to be able to get out my scrappy yarn blanket wip. (find a glossary of crochet and knitting abbreviations here) I shared the finished baby blanket I had been making last week and my lap felt the difference immediately! So I dug out this scrappy C2C blanket that I’ve been working on, on and off, for a couple of years now. I started it with a giant magic yarn ball, but once that was all used up I just add leftovers as and when I have them
Now let’s take a look at the features from last week’s Handmade Monday. Click through on the photos to see the original posts.
Please remember if you want to pin any of these ideas please make sure you click through via the photo to the original project.
Ginny from Ginx Craft has made this gorgeous granny square cardigan for her daughter, isn’t it fabulous?
Steph Creates shared how to make this pretty painted canvas art with faux flowers. I think it turned out beautifully.
These Halloween shrinky earrings by Artsy Karma are so cute, inexpensive and easy to make too.
