Home Sweet Home - Crafting Stuff!

I've had a slight dose of the crafty bug these holidays! There's so many ideas racing around in my head I either forget what I want to do, or don't get time.

The first thing was this pretty choice waterproof drawstring bag for a little man who turned 7. The idea was for him to use it for swimming or football and be able to wash it if needed. I wanted to make an animal but my fabric selection was very limited so I kinda made up a monster/dinosaur thing! 

I tried out making something 'proper' by using the Tunisian Crochet technique which turned out pretty rad. I found it hard to get one end straight, the stitches were like magic and kept multiplying or decreasing unknowingly! So these made up arm warmers are actually really warm and I think adding some embellishments will go down a treat! 

I then used the left over wool so make a quick slouchy beanie! It only took about 2 hours, fits perfectly and I think it looks pretty darn choice! 

Now, I've just bought six balls of some gorgeous wool, but cannot for the life of me remember what I was going to make. So if anyone's got any ideas about something crochetable on 27 hours worth of flying, holla!
