Hello all

I am currently making a camera case for my new camera. I am winging the pattern and it’s easy to imagine what you want, but when the time comes to making the image into an actual object….that is not so easy.

I made it!!! Not too shabby.

Chunky Legwarmers

Good Morning

I made these warm and cozy thick legwarmers.

What you will need: 12mm knitting needles, 10mm crochet hook, and Chunky XL Blue Label wool, and a large eyed darning needle.

Cast on 28sts. Knit in stocking stitch 35 rows. Cast off in pattern.

Once you have sewn up the side seam, crochet 3 rounds along the top and bottom of each legwarmer. Sc around. The next 2 rounds, sc in back loops only. Finish off.


Homemade Toothpaste

I made my own toothpaste.

It is very easy to make and so quick.


1/2 cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons baking soda

2 little packets of stevia powder

15-20 drops of  clove, cinnamon or/and peppermint essential oil.

Mix all the ingredients together, if you coconut oil is melted, then stir occasionally until it has hardened or the essential oils will fall to the bottom.


Kleenex Pouch

Hello All

I have had the flu/cold since last week and as one’s nose tends to run while they are sick, I had to carry a packet of tissues with me wherever I went. SO I had this idea to make a pouch for the packet of tissues.

Below I have posted a link to the pattern. I typed it up in Microsoft Word, so to view it, you will need to have the program or something similar.

I hope you like it…

Let me know in the comments how you found the pattern.

Kleenex pouch

No more tangles

Hello all

I have been so busy with work, that I haven’t written in a long time.

This is my latest project, not crochet related, but rainbow loom created.


I was becoming tired of every time I needed to use my earphones, they were tangled. So I covered them with rainbow loom bands. And it has really worked.



These cute and bright pegs are a perfect gift for children. They can use them to close their favourite packet of chips. These can be used to hang up sticky reminders on notice boards. There is so many options for these cuties.

All the equipment needed to make these are as follows:

Wooden pegs

Foam boards




And last but not least…..imagination!!!

Batman Pixel Blanket


This was a birthday present for my father. As I was busy with the blanket, I wondered if it was a little too young for a 40 something man, but it wasn’t. I had only 3 months in which to make it in and I was amazed at how I managed that. I guess when you have limited time, one can do the impossible with a little motivation.

I made over 1530 solid granny squares to complete this blanket and finished size is suitable for a 3/4 bed.

Sew and crochet blanket


These are the fabric squares that I am attempting to join together with crochet. I have done blanket stitch around the squares. I am not sure if I should piece and pack them together so they fit like a puzzle, or should I make them all the same size and then sew them together. I am stuck. Any suggestions?
