Hand knit felt placemat

Hand knitted felt placemat. I knitted this with genuine real wool yarn, then machine washed in hot water, which felted the wool. Be sure to do a test piece first if you are unsure if your yarn is feltable. Any pure wool should felt. Check the washing instructions and if it says hand wash only in cold water, chances are it will felt in hot water. Panda make a range of special felt able yarns. It pays to get yarns from the same lot number if possible.

POLAROID CROCHET CRAFT

Crochet is such a versatile craft you can crochet a blanket a tea cosie or even a tree cosie.

I spotted this great yarn bomb tree cosie when I was taking a stroll through Port Adelaide. The vintage buttons look fantastic with the bright yarn and textured tree bark. I also picked up some great vintage crochet blankets from Port Adelaide Vinnies thrift store and they look great in my house as wall hangings and throw rugs.

I love decorating with yarn and felt toys and this little toy is something that I hand stitched when I was on holiday in a caravan and now it’s stuck to the front front door.

I love crafting on my holidays because I find it so relaxing. I sewed this little felt toy while I was on a family holiday at christmas. The buttons make great eyes although they are probably not safe for children under three but since I’m in my thirties I think I can manage not to swallow the buttons.
