I made this basket a few months ago at an open crafts night at the Kollabora headquarters in Soho, but I just got around to placing it in my apartment. It’s the perfect holder for the roving wool that I’ve been working with lately.
To make: use thick yarn and single crochet a never-ending spiral.
Lately I’ve been on a new kick– needle felting. It’s so much fun. These creatures were time intensive, but well worth the effort.
Friendship bracelets are back!
I’ve spent hours of my childhood making friendship bracelets… and now hours of my adult life knotting away. But this time I’ve added a twist– crimped ribbon ends and a toggle clasp connected by a few jump rings. I consider this bracelet to be part of the next generation of friendship bracelets.

I inherited a great vintage suitcase a few months ago and decided to make it into a mini dresser for winter hats and scarves. I had extra sofa legs on hand, so all I needed were some nuts and washers. Check out the final product!
Okay, full disclosure: The original intention for this suitcase was for it to be a cat bed. Sadly, it was not accepted and became a mini dresser.
For your Friday enjoyment!

I came across a simple baby sun hat pattern while looking through the Purl Bee’s website and decided to make one for Sylas, my friend’s adorable newborn baby. Unfortunately, Sylas’ head is about the same size as the glass that’s holding up the hat in my photo, so it might be a few months before he can rock it.
