That'll Do Pig

Posted on: 03/02/2011

Images from the manga cut up and pasted on a piggy bank for my boyfriend's 25th birthday =)

Having come across decopatch papers (where you cut them up and paste them on then coat them again with paste), I decided to adapt the technique and use images from manga books to do the same thing. Now I need to make one for myself!


Just Bead It!

Posted on: 03/02/2011

By far the most instant craft ever!

Who would’ve thought that beads that you just arrange, then iron, would be so fun!!!! Currently waiting to make this into a magnet =)

Knitted Sackboy

One of my favourite things I’ve knitted. Based on Sackboy from Little Big Planet. Who would’ve thought that tabloid newspapers would be a good source for knitting patterns!

Cross stitched with a glow in the dark outline

My first VERY frustrating cross-stitch. Hindered by poor threads, and glow in the dark thread which is exceedingly annoying, but pleased with the end result!

Knitted with a kit my Gran gave me

My Gran gave me a knitting kit and this was the lovely result =) Decided to add the heart on a whim but I think it really finishes it nicely.

The Momiji Doll I based it on

The hat I made based on it

I was really happy with how this hat turned out. I have strange ambitions to knit every Momiji hat out there!
