Been making lots of gifts over the last few weeks which is always fun but requires long no-crafting periods in between to let my hands recover! My favourite make was a fairy dress for my granddaughter. I found a pattern from DaisyChainGirl for the crochet bodice and the skirt part although with the skirt you don’t really need a pattern and can add material in whatever way you want! I used a double strand fold over not a knot.
I chose red and green for a Christmas theme!
Finished fairy dress

I’m planning to make some more in different colours for each season!
I finally finished it! My first crocheted fairy tea cosy!
My first one!
It’s taken quite a while as I had to adapt the pattern for my Tea Pot and crocheting all the adornments and sewing them on took longer than crocheting the base cover! I’m keeping this as an ornament for me and going to start some more smaller ones as presents for … you know…(whispers quietly) Christmas!!
The pattern for this was originally found here but fortunately now part of it has been translated and stored in the files of one of my Facebook crochet groups. The other way I managed was by opening up the Russian web page in google chrome as it automatically asks you if you would like the page translating. It’s not perfect but it is a good help if you are an experienced crocheter
I’m still making my Sophie too!
Crocheting in the garden!
and working on a fairy dress for my Grandaughter’s first birthday – it’s not sewn up yet as I need to have a fitting session – not easy with a wriggly nearly-one-year-old!
Charlotte’s fairy dress WiP!
So once the dress is finished just the cake to design! Think it might just be a fairy house! Pictures will follow after the party in 2 weeks!
