A chair, a dress and a snippet of news

Stayed up late last night to finally finish yarn bombing my little wooden chair. I'm quite pleased with the way it has turned out.

It's now found its own place, brightening up a space in my crochet museum in my living room.

 It's been too warm and humid for much crocheting, and with my granddaughters 6th birthday next month, at the weekend I made her a dress from this cute fabric printed with princesses.

Her main present is going to be a doll, so with the left over fabric I have made this little dress and knickers. I do hope they fit.

I've also been working on some crochet pieces to go into The Museum of Lakeland Life and Industry, Abbot Hall, Kendal for display during Kendal Wool Gathering in October. More about that in a future post.

  1. I LOVE the chair, the perfect finish it looks amazing. The fabric for the dresses is stunning, your Grandaughter will look adorable.

    1. I had fun making them. My granddaughter loves the clothes I sew and the knitting her great grandmother makes for her. I know that she will change her views as she gets older, they all do. When I saw that fabric I just knew I had to make something with it. I have a little bit left so I think a bit of patchwork may be its destination.

  2. Love the chair. I have always wanted to yarn bomb something. It is on my to do list. I might yarn bomb my hubby hehe. Love the princess matching outfits. I so wish I could sew, I struggled lining a rectangle shopping bag I very nearly glued it .Haha
    Have a lovely weekend
