Some fab knitted item made by Sally V please comment.
i have been busy what with my charity knitting for latch but not to get bored i have given it a go with making wreaths and this is what i have come up with they will all be donated to the local charity shop so they can sell them
The yarn wreath i made is made from a styrofoam wreath and green yarn and you wrap it around the wreath it is with two shades of green the felt flowers were made from a circle of felt folded in half then met the two ends together and glue with a glue gun if possible thou fabric glue is okay.The centers were made from felt the letter is chipboard painted and attracted with wire floral ribbon.
The fabric wreath is wrapped with fabric and adorned with green and white fabric flowers and felt shamrocks which can be bought in this shape or made yourself i bought them already made from hobbycraft
The its a boy wreath is made out of fabric and then chipboard letters painted and glittered but you can buy them already done and they are with glittered flowers .The flowered wreath was made with a styrofoam wreath and dry flowers glued around it with a ribbon attracted.
we are all having such a blast on a wednesday night over our wool and needles we seem to forgetting to count our stitches and our rows and chatting more and more hence the name stitch n chat. Everyone is getting on like a house on fire and sharing projects and wool and ideas, we have made new friends and hopefully some more all the way, this week we are going to the craft show in cardiff and then december we have two things lined up,we are on our night out on december the 1st for a curry, and then on the 5th december we are taking all our projects and delivering them onto the childrens cancer ward.
these are a selection of dolls clothes knitted they are so cute but we dont know who to give them to yet.
