Fairy Shoes in a Jar

I decided to place some fairy shoes inside a jar instead of framing them. I laid them on some man made moss with sequins and small flowers.
A different pair with coiled wire laces.

I placed a butterfly made of card on top of the jars to finish them off.

Another two "Julia" Tops by Make me Something

Another version of the Make Me Something "Julia " top but this time made with sweatshirt fabric  and with the round neckline.

I liked  the style so much that I made yet another one in a bright pink boucle knitted fabric.

Sweatshirt Top by "Make Me Something"

This is a new tunic top I have made from a great pattern by " Make Me Something" called the "Julia Top". The ant covered soft lined sweatshirt fabric was perfect for the design, though I had to widen the sleeves slightly to accommodate the thickness of the fabric.

The shape is loose and boxy and this is the cowl neck version of the pattern.

Knitted Shawl "Fortingall"

I knitted this shawl at the end of last winter from a pattern called "Fortingall" by Louisa Harding.

The wool used was Amitola Grande which was variegated and very soft to the touch.

Detail of the bottom edge.
The pattern was taken from Louisa Harding's book "Aberfeldy".
