New Item Listed – Baby/Child Bamboo Cotton Crocheted Summer Hat!

I have listed a new item – woohoo!

Baby Hat
It is made with a gorgeous bamboo cotton yarn that has some amazing benefits! Bamboo is eco-friendly as it requires no chemicals and very little water to grow, and it is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It also absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than other plants and releases more oxygen. Bamboo cotton keeps you cool as well as absorbing moisture away from your body. It is also great for allergy-prone and sensitive skin, and is anti-fungal and antibacterial! It is breathable and doesn’t retain odors, meaning less washing! With 100% natural fibers it is a great choice for your little one.

Baby Hat
Flowers
It has a really cute triangle design and comes with one big flower and one small one in any colour! There are 11 flower colour combinations to choose from:
Pinks and purples –

Greens, white and yellow –

Blues –

You can message me if there isn’t a colour listed and I will try to find a matching yarn for you! Or, if you want a different accessory altogether, say a dinosaur or heart, just message me!

Here’s a close up of the scalloped edge

For the custom fit: Measure all around your child’s head in a full circle across the forehead. If this is for a gift or you can’t measure for any reason, add the age into the message when buying instead and I will base it on averages. However this is not a guaranteed size and I would recommend measuring for a good fit.

You can buy it from my Etsy shop for £8.50, and I ship worldwide

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you like my newest item!

Happy Easter! (And A Crocheted Easter Surprise Egg!)

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you’re all having a lovely and relaxing Sunday ^_^ I’ve been for a little walk with my partner and I’m now relaxing, watching movies and eating chocolate!

I’m home!

Thank you all for your well wishes, I am now home from hospital and slowly recovering. The tumours have been removed and my liver should be beginning to grow back! There was a slight complication and I lost a lot of blood resulting in 7 pints having to be given back to me through a blood transfusion. I was on Intensive care but recovered well, and would have been moved to the high dependency unit and then the ward after a few days but neither had beds available for the whole 2 weeks I was in!

My scar is very big and looks like I’ve been attacked by a shark! Thankfully I don’t mind scars much, and it does look kind of cool ;) It goes from my breast bone and curves down and round to my waist and towards my back – like I said, big!

I didn’t actually manage to get any crochet done while in. For the first week I wasn’t well enough, then I was waiting to go onto the ward before asking for it to be brought in and as I said, I never got onto a ward so never got any crochet done!
Here’s a picture of my progress from before hospital:

I will be continuing to make it as I recover and will show you my progress!

Crochet Mice!

Recently my mum asked me to make her a little brown mouse from the nursery rhyme ‘Little Mousey Brown’ 

Little crocheted brown mouse
I posted a few pictures on facebook from patterns I’d found on Ravelry for her to choose from, and she decided she wanted a little purple one too from a different pattern! 3 other friends wanted one too so I now have a little family of mice to make!! (Apparently a group of mice is called a family, I never knew that!)
I’ve just finished the purple one and I’ve made a little lime green one too, but don’t have pictures yet. I’ll show you some pictures soon!
Here’s the link to the pattern for this one :)
