Madeit update

Madeit update

  I thought it about time I updated our Madeit store with some oldies but goodies. We are all about encouraging creativity here at Ditto Crafts and where better to start than with our little ones. So often these days you go out and see kids staring at a screen at...
My small project bag

My small project bag

I finally got to make myself a proper crochet project bag for the train. It’s been on my to do list for ages! I picked an online tutorial as my base, find it here. I’ve been hoarding this owl fabric for a couple of years, just waiting for the perfect...
My Boteh Scarf

My Boteh Scarf

This scarf has spent a long time in the “finished but need to block” pile. I have a few of those. I have now gotten over my fear of blocking – wetting and pinning out a finished crochet/knitted piece to give it better form. All of the thoughts run...
Up cycled Dress to Bag

Up cycled Dress to Bag

When a friend called and asked me if I could make her a bag from a dress she brought, I thought mmm, yes. She brought this cute, handmade number and fell in love with the fabric. It’s a beautiful linen with dear on it. Not a bad score for $6. So I got on...

New Travel Pass Holders

New Travel Pass Holders

I have finally been able to make a pile of new New Travel Pass Holders. These will be slowly added in our Madeit store in the coming week. Some are already in there. These are the very last 2 I can make in this London fabric. I have used the very last of this fabric....
New Lettuce Cactus

New Lettuce Cactus

I was playing around with some yarn the other day. Not sure what I was intending on making. But this is the result. The Lettuce Cactus was born! I’m going to play around with a few different yarns and pot colours. But I think I’m pretty happy with the...
