Earlier this year I completed a very special one-off project: making a wedding dress for my lovely friend Lauren.
It was a lot of fun to work with Lauren to develop her initial idea and make it real. I felt very proud on the big day!
When I told people I was making a wedding dress, they assumed it would be knitted. But no! I can sew too! Although - as you'll see - it was inevitable that some crochet would pop up in the trims...
Congratulations Lauren and Joe! And thank you, Lauren, for being such an incredibly laid-back bride!
I thought I would share the fun from a few recent workshops. First up was a crochet lesson in a tent, which formed part of the hen party celebrations for Lisa, organised by her sister Claire. None of the group had crocheted before, but in the two hour lesson they managed to produce enough pieces to create a stunning – and certainly unique – cushion cover panel!
