Anjelica Howe Art

I’ve spent the last few weeks making this granny square cushion using a template from ‘The Crochet Book’ by Cath Kidston, which comes in a lovely decorative tin. In this tin you are provided with a ‘how to crochet’ booklet, a 4mm hook and a selection of yarn, plus the actual template for the cushion.
The squares were relatively easy and fun to make, although I had to consult YouTube before starting as the written pattern was slightly confusing,
This is the tutorial that I used.
I did end up running out of the provided yarn before the back of the cushion was complete, which did peeve me off a wee bit, but I did manage to complete it using some scraps of different coloured yarn. I also found the yarn to be quite flimsy and would break/fray easily which was worrisome at times. Overall, I am pleased with how it’s turned out as I’ve never made anything this ‘complex’ before.
HERE is the link to the kit if anyone would like to give it go themselves.

Hi everyone, just a quick reminder that my Making Comics workshop on the 9th of August at MK Arts Centre still needs a few more bookings to make it happen. As an extra incentive, all of their summer workshops are now discounted, so if you’re interested in spending a day with me learning how to make comics, go and book now!

My super talented friend Jade Sarson is hosting a comics workshop in Milton Keynes. This is definitely worth checking out if you’re interested in making comics!

I’ve just spent the past couple of weeks sewing this Jigglypuff cross stitch. I wanted to try my hand at something a bit more complex and I’m very happy with how its turned out!
The pattern I used was from this Deviantart user Makibird-Stitching.


Ahhh thank you so much for reblogging this! Your pattern was so easy to follow and made the project very enjoyable to do :) I would recommend them to anyone interested in cross stitch!

I wanted to try making really simple and cute whilst attempting to develop my own ‘style’.
