Crochet: Brooch
Crochet: Purse
Crochet: Brooch
I used kidsilk haze and DMC cotton together to give a firmer brooch flower. The centres were felt pieces I bought, or a felt ball, sometimes cut in half to expose the multi-coloured inside.
Knitting: Sachet
I wrote this pattern after struggling with a rather vague one I had bought.
Crochet: Hanging Ornament
This little bag, a variation on my standard tree bag pattern, is designed to hold just one Ferrero Rocher chocolate and hang on the Christmas tree!
Crochet: Sachet
One Ferrero Rocher chocolate fits perfectly in one of these tree bags. You may find other sweet treats that fit equally well!
Crochet: Bracelet
I have also used this technique to make straps for a shoulder bag in DK yarn, without the beads.

Crochet: Purse
The pattern for an impromptu bag I made for my little granddaughter.

Crochet: Drawstring Bag
I use this purse for my loose change, but it would be equally good for a bride to hold her lipstick and comb in or to hold sugared almonds as christening favours.
Crochet: Pin Cushion
If you want brown eggs try dyeing the finished work (before stuffing) in strong tea. I tried coffee but the colour was not as strong.
Crochet: Cloche Hat
I created this pattern for my head - which is not very big - so you may need to add some rows!
