I've been 'laid low' for a few days, but feeling much better today, so thought I'd
boast tell you about the things I made before the weekend.
I finished the crocheted heart -
I made myself a new peg bag, to replace the very tatty thing I'd made years ago
And, I made the pretty, though faintly ridiculous, underpinnings from the kit that Gina encouraged me to buy on Friday.
I have to say, the pattern looked massive - even in the smallest size - and I obviously didn't go for the smallest size.
I found the instructions a little bit unclear in some places, but just decided to use my initiative and got them finished. I think I may have stretched the elastic a bit too much, because I had to pin them out for this photo
because, when left to their own devices, they look like this -
But, believe it or not, they do fit!
I'm really not sure whether I'll ever wear them, but I loved making them and they make me smile. Go on, get yourself a kit, you know you want to. If you're not an experienced stitcher, you could always go along to The Creative Sanctuary and make them in a workshop
You can see Gina's HERE - her version looks much less 'crinkled up', but then she IS my teacher, and a professional stitcher, and she probably didn't stretch the elastic as much as I did.
Or there again, maybe she needed hers to be just that little bit wider than mine?
