Butterfly brooches

At last I have some butterfly brooches to show you all - these are very similar butterflies to the ones I make for my butterfly garlands, they are slightly larger though and have little crochet antenna.

These two little butterflies will be fluttering off to new homes for Christmas but I'm hoping to make up a few more for my shop soon.

New yarns to play with

The sale at my local toddler group went so well that I've had to buy in some more yarn to work with!

I'm really glad that I made so many hair clips last week as they sold brilliantly... I think a few of them will definitely be ending up being put into Christmas stockings next month :-)

I will be selling crochet bits at a couple more charity events soon so I've got lots to do with making some more stock - and once I have a few more crochet bits made I'll add some extra items to the shop for any online buyers who want to stock up for Christmas...

Hair clip mania

This Friday I'll be doing another sale at my local toddler group so I've been working hard making some extra stock.

Because I love the new butterfly hair clips I made recently I thought I would work up some more in different colours and I adore how they have turned out!

I've now got a lovely box full of pretty butterfly & flower hair clips and I'm sure they'll sell well as I can see them being perfect stocking fillers :-)

Butterfly hair clips

Just finished working up a couple of pairs of butterfly hair clips.

First off we have a lovely lilac & heather colour combination - they slightly vintage and old fashioned.

I've adjust the pattern that I used for my butterfly garland to make a smaller size and added on antenna. Due to the sturdiness of the yarn these butterflies hold their shape really well so shouldn't curl up while being worn.

Next up I've done the butterflies in purple and hot pink. These are much brighter and would really suit some pretty denim dungarees I think :-) 

Which colours would you choose?

Now I'm off to make a few more pairs - then after taking a few more photos I can list these in the shop.
