When Marie Segares of Underground Crafter invited my to join her Christmas in July Make Along, I knew immediately it would give me a chance to have a bit of out of season fun! So when I saw there was a pet category, I knew that here was my chance to go a little off piste and make something for my sister’s adorable dog, Ando.Keep Reading
Back in November, I set myself the challenge of releasing a Free Festive Pattern every Friday in the run up to Christmas. Well, by my calculations, I have one more to go! Seeing as today is exactly one week until Christmas, I decided to bring it forward a few days to make today Free Festive Monday instead. Mostly because I wanted to build in some making time for you.
The Festive AF Crochet Christmas Wreath – An experiment in letting go of perfection and channelling the sh*t out of Christmas spirit!

It was sometime in my 20s when my housemate at the time first introduced me to Vegetable Fuckloads. The perfect solution to those days when my body rejected anymore junk food, pasta or bread (the staples of the student life). It basically involved a wok and all the vegetables available, irrespective of what they were or whether they complemented each other, a bit of oil and some spices. To this day, whenever I feel the need for a health kick (and the desire to feel a bit of virtue) I go for Vegetable Fuckloads.
This was the precise attitude with which I approached the Festive As Fuck Wreath. It’s basically Christmas fuckloads.

It’s the Friday after Thanksgiving. The hight street calls it Black Friday, makers are reclaiming it as Indy Friday, but I’m sticking with Festive Friday and today only you can get 10% off everything in my Etsy store using the code FESTIVE at the checkout. Below you can also see the 4th in my series of Free Festive Friday patterns.
To this day, I have vivid recollections of making paper chains to decorate the house at Christmas. Cutting up bits of coloured paper, throwing some glitter at it with dried out pritt-stick but being proud, nonetheless, of the end result!keep reading
