It is funny sometimes the things that spark a crafty idea; this one came from seeing Wendy's gorgeous campervan bag, which got me thinking about our camper, Betty - and as I've been making quite a lot of woolly cake and the like, I thought I'd knit a Betty...
As with all my make-them-up-as-you-go-along projects, this looks totally different from the picture I had in my head.. For a start, the plan was to make it small enough so I could stuff it with lavender and dangle it from the rear view mirror - a bespoke/personalised van air freshener if you like; but it turned out bigger than expected, and would I think be a driving hazard...so I'm not sure!
Maybe a novelty lavender bag, or it could join the toy camper collection on the windowsill. OR perhaps I should stick with the original idea and put the mini Betty in Betty, just somewhere that doesn't block my view..
I don't think the knitted camper will be going into mass production...a bit on the fiddly side with all the detail, and I found it hard to get the shape right, but my newly acquired flat circle crochet skills came in handy for the wheels. Anyway it was fun to do, and what do you think? A dead ringer??..
