This week started with a certain "young" mans birthday so a cake was called for. Those of you that have read this blog a few times over the last 8 months will know that a certain family member can make all sorts of flashy birthday cakes - not this one! I made this with my own fair hands - butter icing and white maltesers, you can't get much better than that!
Obviously he was older than 1 but the number of candles required would have been a fire hazard.....
I then spent the week finishing off the sunglasses cases I've been working on. They were made using a pattern in the current issue of Craftseller magazine, although I've tweaked them slightly.
I have lined them with plain cotton fabric I had lying around because I thought that the arms of glasses could get caught in the wool that is carried behind the sunglasses shapes, and instead of crocheting a loop I have sewn in a ribbon loop, hiding the fastening behind the lining. This is a great stash buster project and I have a couple more items for my craft stall! If I have time, I will try and make some more - somebody has pointed out that I tend to use bright, primary colours, so perhaps I ought to use some paler, pastel yarn next time.
Join me over at Handmade Mondayhttp://handmadeharbour.blogspot.co.uk/ to see what everybody has been up to this past week. Then off to bed early for me as I have an early start getting Number 1 Son off to school for his French trip!
