My latest filet crochet portrait

Hello world,

I actually completed this in November 2012 but haven't posted it up until now. I decided for 2012 I would actually make the portrait that I created the pattern for when I wrote my tutorial on how to create a filet crochet pattern from a photo using Photoshop. And here's the finished product! I'll add it into the original post for the sake of completeness.

How was your xmas and New Year?

Quick, cheap and simple DIY usherette tray how-to

Hello world,

Today I decided to take a different approach to making a tutorial. My tutorials are usually very image-heavy and so I thought I'd try posting a tutorial as a Pinterest board and see how it comes out.

Check out the link below for my Usherette Tray for less than $10 tutorial! (AKA vendor tray or cigarette girl tray, also popularised by Trixie at the beginning of Rocky Horror) And please do tell me what you think of this new format.

If it works out, I will keep up the Pinterest format as it is much easier to do from my smartphone than building them on Blogger on my phone.

Hello world,

Just a quick note to share this wiggly crochet critter I've created for a friend's baby shower. Will make a handy companion for the plane trip too I think!
