Default Needle roll & peg bag

Today I made a peg bag. And a roll for my knitting needles and crochet hooks etc... well it's an improvement on a plastic bag and at least everything is in one place. Did take me a while to suss out how to make all the compartments, and I did make a blooper but worked round it. There are also pockets behind the bottom section, and I still need to buy some ribbon to tie it.

Default The Hat

Made this cool hat, looks like my sister-in-law is going to get it. As it turned out a bit on the small side for me... have to make another one this time bigger...lol

Managed the 2nd one in a fraction of the time, helps when you know how to get round the fiddly bits!

Default Pan lid to feeder/bath

Made a feeder from pan lid which will double as a birdbath in summer. Will have to get some light chain to make it more secure though.
Also made a bottle feeder out of a bottle , stick and coat hanger.

Default 50cd Spindle case to plant pot.

I took the case of a 50 spindle cd set and used as a plant pot. Then covered with fabric. Although you could paint or use cool wallpaper too.

Love the place mats and pin cushion. You can't have too many pincushions when crafting! Well done.

Thanks Unapam! Well I'm beginning to realise that Pin cushions are too handy, I wonder how I managed without one for so many years. The wrist strap pincushion is looking very appealing all of a sudden... might make one yet!
The placemats were a bit of a challenge for me, mainly the corners! But now that I've made them once it'll be easier next time round. I also just finished coasters to match.

Loved the cushion you made with the padded heart... forgot to tell you that on your post, body in one place mind in another!!

Made a few key fobs, the one below is for my bike lock and fits on the wrist so I won't lose it. Also used an old milk bottle as a watering can, simply make a few holes near the top and whala!

I finished socks for the other half and had 24g left so I made a small crocheted Amigurumi toy. hand-stitched the eyes and put a fabric nose on. It's stuffed with shredded fabric scraps. Not wasting any of it...lol

Also our door kept hitting the wall and was leaving a mark on the paint, it was only a matter of time before a hole appeared. So I rolled up a fabric scrap, covered it with another scrap and blanket stitched the seams. Now I've got a bung which prevents the door handle hitting the wall.

Default hat

Hi
Your hat is fantastic.
Did you need something to stiffen it?
Did you get a pattern.
