March 18 What’s in The Box?
Spring is sprung!!! And that’s what’s in this box! A whole load of Spring! This is our very own hipster lamb, Donovan. He’s revving up for festival season and we’re hoping to see photos of him lying around outside tents all over the world. But first you need to give him life! He was designed by Alison from Kornflake Stew, who I’ve had my eye on for ages! She manages to inject such character into her creations!
Donovan is made with Yarn and Colours and ByClaire using:
50g Claire Cotton in White 001
10g Mini Must Have in Deep Cerise
10g Mini Must Have in Light Pink
10g Mini Must Have in Pistachio
We’ve included as much stuffing as possible and if you’d like to make Donovan even firmer you can add a little more. I hope you don’t mind that we choose Yarn over stuffing when it comes to space in the box.
There is a soft handled crochet hook in 2.5mm, a bodkin
Lovely Emily from Middlemist Makes has made us some cute little felt hair clips! I adore these and actually use them as brooches as well on my jumpers!
Tile Productions have created your cute little Bumble Bee Brooch! Living just outside Manchester I’m especially fond of this little fella! Our girls Nicola Rowlands and Beth at Koruclay have given us a gorgeous postcard, reminding us all to Be Nice and the cutest little Mama Ladybird stitch marker!
