The pattern I decided to have a go at was from a website called Topsy Turvy which gave me an awesome pattern for crocheted wrap around boots. I played around with the pattern and made a few different pair of booties. The pattern is for a pair of boots to fit a size 4, around 9-12 months.
This is a very similar design to the pattern off of the Topsy Turvy website, though I did reduce the row after the sole to make the sole more defined.
With these boots I used thinner Calico thread, and had to adjust the design so that it fits a new born. The website does give a link to size one boots but I made these at the spare of the moment so couldn't get to a computer to see the how to, so just improvised.
And lastly I had a go at a more 'fluffy' effect with a loop stitch after I looked up the loop stitch YouTube.
None of the boots have buttons attached yet as I still need to make a trip to the market, but I plan on going in the next few days, and making a few more, so I can post fully completed pictures pretty soon.
Also the last few days I was looking through various crochet pictures on Instagram and was inspired to make a blankets of flowers - individual crocheted flowers all sewn together.
Without thinking I began to make 5 point flowers. After making about 16 flowers it dawned on me that the pentagon design is not the best to put together as a repeated pattern. If I was going to make it into a blanket, it would look more like a lacy throw. Here is a picture of the flowers I currently have put together in how they would be sewn together.
So now I'm not too sure what to do with them? Continue to make the blanket/throw with this colours plus another 3 different colours, or to save these flowers for another project and start again making 6 point flowers? Decisions, decisions.......Any advice anyone?
Well as usual, I still have hundreds of different projects flying round my head, and also I think now is the time to really start thinking about Christmas (only 13 and a half weeks!)
So until my next post, happy crafting <3
