Paper Bows

Debs sent me a link to some lovely wee paper bows and challenged me to make them.  And so I did!  They're actually incredibly easy to do, and the tutorial, although in Chinese, is simple enough to follow from the photos.

What a great finishing touch to all our crafty gifts, aye?! Link to the tutorial can be found here.

Rainbow Spiderweb Blanket

Having been inspired by Tori's Spiderman blanket, I decided to have a go at trying the pattern out for myself. It's comes together very quickly, and is a much easier pattern for a beginner to follow than it looks like!

And so, my boys' Rainbow Spiderweb Blankets!

Crocheted using Deramores Stylecraft Special DK, which is a lovely soft acrylic - the colours (red to purple) are Matador, Jaffa, Sunshine, Green, Turquise, Wisteria.  Oh, and white!
