|12 things, 12 months... just|
Looking at the 12 things that I made as part of the challenge this year, I do feel a little deflated. How could I have only just managed to pull it off? Well you have to remember these weren't the only things I made in 2015.
Don't forget my Fluff and Fuzz mini challenge in the middle of the year while I waited for Sophie's second open heart surgery. There were also 3 birthday parties and birthday cakes to make, slippers for dads in hospital on Fathers Day, beanies for premature babies, items for my handmade business and more!
|Just some of the other things I made in 2015|
For the actual challenge, below I have made a list in order of completion (from what I can remember, I've not checked thoroughly!) See the individual posts for the whole story, and links to the original inspiration;
Crochet Cake - This kit was a Christmas gift. Being a novice, I had some troubles with this one, however I made it. It's still technically in one piece, but has been 'well loved'
|I like my cake with less fluff|
Crochet Pear - I liked making this one but haven't attempted another and don't know if I could!
|Original from Mollie Makes / My Pink Pear|
Easter Egg Cosies - I loved making these. They were quick, easy, and a lot of fun. I would make them again.
|It'll be Easter again soon|
Love Heart Piñata - The piñata was a hit (pun intended), not as pretty as the original inspiration but mine was for a birthday party not a fancy wedding.
|I heart Piñatas|
Royal Icing Cookies - I was a bit disappointed with how these turned out. I'm not really interested in trying again and will leave this to the experts.
|They still tasted yum|
Tea Bags - Weren't as easy as they looked, however the kids still love playing with them.
|A spot of tea|
Girls Cardigan - I enjoyed making this one, it took quite a while but i was pretty impressed when it all came together and looked like a cardigan. It's so soft and my daughter loves wearing it, bonus.
Child's Apron - I was scared of this one, however it turned out almost perfect!
|My first sewing project for 2015|
Christmas Tree Skirt - I didn't really complete this the way I had wanted, it also turned out quite large. At least I did it. I may make some alterations for next Christmas.
|Tis the season|
Card Table Tent - From Bat Cave to 'Imagination Cave'! I love that the kids can make whatever they want of this.
|Use your imagination|
Three Bears House - Without a doubt, this turned out to be my favourite. I loved being able to create my own fairytale house and I will most certainly make another one day. I just need to wait for inspiration to strike.
Bolero - I made it, enough said. Mine looks horrible when comparing it with the original. I will wear it though.
|Perhaps a flower would help...|
Right now, I feel free! Free that I can make whatever I want, free to make anything and everything. Now where will I start...
