Now I’ve got a bit of a thing for crocheted baskets! I love them! I love having them around my house and I love making them.
I was delighted therefore to have the recent opportunity to design some little bathroom baskets for Issue 109 of LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine (on sale now) and I came up with these little bubble baskets.
Use them in the bathroom, bedroom – anywhere really to store little bits and bobs. You can make them in any colour to match your own home decor with a little pop of contrasting colour – really love the versatility of these.
I also made another design for Issue 109 which is just super fun – though I’m not anything will quite beat last years Easter project of the Bunny Bow tie (still love that!).
For this years issue I made some Mummy and Me bunny headbands! Cute right?!
My two girls just loved these! Hopping around everywhere pretending to be rabbits!
They would be great for dressing up on Easter Sunday (or just as a fancy dress accessory) and if you add some craft pipe cleaners to the inner ears you could make them position-able!
There are lots of fab patterns in this month’s edition; I really love Madonna the Cow by Sarah-Jane Hicks (it’s a cow…called Madonna!!) and the Baby Bear Comforter by Sarah Louise Read is just so cute!
There are 43 exclusive patterns in this months edition and you get your yarn and 3.5mm hook and 3.5mm knitting needles included with your 68 page magazine.
LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine is available in major supermarkets and newsagents across the UK.
If you hook up either the Bathroom Baskets or the Easter Dress up headbands I hope you’ll share your photos with me on social media (facebook, twitter or instagram) or as a project on Ravelry – I love to see what you make!
Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
