Craft fare preparations continue.

One week left to go and I am making progress.

I’m actually quite nervous having never attended a craft fare in this capacity before. I’m usually the person perusing other peoples handmade goods.

The notion that people will be judging my work, whether it be positively or negatively makes me feel slightly nauseous.

I’m sure it will be fine. Who doesn’t like squishy bumblebees and jellyfish?

Happy Hippo Blanket

I made this blanket some time ago now, it’s a gift for my best friend’s little girl, however thanks to the pandemic it has not made it’s way to it’s new owner just yet!

The Blanket body is a pattern from one of my favourite crochet tutorial you tubers, Hooked by Robin, you can check out the video here if you would like to make your own!

The hippo was something Imade muself, though he’s not too complicated, just basic amigarumi shapes and then sewn to the blanket body.

He took me a few hours to make but I wasn’t a very confident crocheter at the time so I was very careful and slow, I needed him to be just perfect!

The yarn is all from Snufflebeanyarn and is the Scheepjes ‘Chunky Monkey’. It’s a super soft yarn, which is quite loosley spun but you soon get used to working with it.
