Wednesday macramé 

Hello lovely readers!

So for my birthday, back in September, I got a succulent and I’m afraid I haven’t been the best at taking care of it. I think I almost drowned it a few times because I kept it inside and overwatered it. Today, I decided to finally do something about it and to put my succulent outside. But I couldn’t just put the pretty glass pot it’s in on the flood, could I? 

Quick, I needed YouTube!

And I found it! A tutorial on how to make macramé.    

 
I hope my little succulent will be happier now! 

On another note, do you remember when I was telling you about dying my own fabric for cross stitching?

Well I’ve done it. I tried a few things from my kitchen, and let me tell you broccoli (for green) and cloves (for brown) do not work at all. Tumeric on the other hand worked great and I now have a piece of bright yellow fabric to cross stitch my full Thumbelina design on 😊 
 Have you tried dying fabric and what did you use for your colours? I’d love to do some more dying for different projects and I’m always looking for advice!

Crochet baskets 

I was browsing through MollieMakes and found this cute basket pattern which seemed perfect to store my not-yet-used yarn. It only took me a few hours to make and it helped tidy my craft area/living room a lot!


The white one was made with macramé off-white cotton (harder to work than yarn but it gives the basket a better structure)

and the brown one with chocolate chunky yarn. I used a 10mm crochet hook for both.

Do you have nice crafted things to help you tidy things up at home?
