My eldest asked me yesterday if I could make some real cake.
When I've finished the swiss roll pencil case, I said...
It was good practice for crocheted flat circles, now I've got the hang of them. The jam is a swirl of chain stitches, and the middle bit is just a knitted rectangle. I only had a small zip, so it doesn't go all the way along - still, enough room for pencils and pens.
My original plan was to sew this crocheted strawberry onto the zip pull, but it looked a bit odd, so went for a crocheted flower instead.
And because the colour of the yarn used for the last cupcake box reminded me of carrot cake, I made this one with some seriously fluorescent orange wool.
Time I think for a cake break...unless anyone has any other sweet ideas?..
