I did it … just. I suddenly realised on Saturday that although I had done crafty things for me I hadn’t actually made anything for me. I had spun yarn but made that into things for others and I had worked on my owl and flower granny blanket but I didn’t finish it!
I did not want to fail the challenge so as I needed another pen pot that became my ‘Me’ make. I found an empty jar to cover and made this!
I wanted to make up my own pattern and decided to go with spots. It took a bit longer than I anticipated to work it out and get it right but once I did it was really quick and I love the results.
For the children’s stocking present this month I decided to make coasters.
For Josh I chose to make this snail coaster adapting this snail motif pattern.
And for Abi it was the owl I made out of the first lot of yarn I spun. I just
I added buttons to the eyes and needle felted the beak. It is big enough for the bottom half of the owl to take a mug.
I now just have to decide what to make next month!
I joined thistlebear for the challenge to make one thing a month back in January. Here is her post for this month.
