Random key rings that I made :)

hello folks.....
hope ya all keeping well :)
just thought I'd share some more of my creations with ya....
a selection of Key rings :)

Most of the above I still have if anyone wants to buy any lol

These above & below were for my family :)

These flower key rings above were made for some special friends :)

This key ring above went with a large Matryoshka doll
that I crocheted for a friend's Grand-daughter :)

This key ring above went with a large Sea horse
that I crocheted for a friend :)

The flower key ring above woz made for a friend but I decided I didn't like it for a 'daisy' (which the pattern said it woz lol) so found a better pattern which is shown above lol

Do you like Caravaning??? LOL

my younger Sister & her Hubby are always away in the Caravan or their 'Wobblebox' as they happily call it HAHAHA
Recently my Sister came across a cushion on Google & asked if I could do some thing similar... so I Googled & actually found the pattern for the cushion she'd shown me lol.... clever huh??? ;) hehehe
Anyway..... this is what I created (it's far from perfect & a couple of things I did differently to the pattern but my Sister loved it anyway LOL

then I went on & found another pattern & created this (it's just a small stuffed toy caravan lol)

& I found a pattern for one of these too LOL (sorry it's not the best picture am afraid lol)

Amazing what ya can find when ya Google innit??? LOL

Thanx for taking time to check out my creations :)

a friend of mine in the States said she wanted a couple of Minions for a friend of hers who is getting married.... so this is what I created for her

What dya think??? they're all darned cute right??? LOL

A few more bits :)

I never knew I could follow a pattern lol

Below are a couple of outfits I did using crochet (I didn't follow any pattern for these.. I just did them off the top of my head lol) for two of my great-nieces... Kadey & Kyra :)

Below are some crocheted baby cardigan's I did for my latest great-niece... Evie:)

Here's what I've been up to ;) LOL

hey blogger friends
just thought I'd share some bit's with you that are not 'card' related lol
I re-found my love of knitting & crochet last year & have done quite alot of bits since lol
If ya wanna check out all my bits....then pleez feel free to check out my Pinterest page
(click the link in the sidebar or the button above)
Anyway.... as Easter is soon to be upon us... I recently found (on FB in a sewing/kitting group I follow lol) a kitting pattern (not free btw lol) for an Easter Owl & below is the first one I made for my daughter (I deviated from the pattern slightly for my own desired look lol)
but this is what I ended up with :)

then someone on FB (in sewing/kitting group) posted a Minion they'd created based on the owl pattern & of course I just had to have a go myself & below is the first Easter Minion I did for my daughter's b/f :)

I don't think the eggs are still in either of them now but boy have I had fun making more Owls & Minions for other people... I will post more maybe tomorrow ;) hehehe

Thanx for stopping by... much appeciated :D
