Little knitting, little sewing.

Last time, I posted the little green pears I had just finished up.  I decided I needed to make some little brown pears to go on some of the green dishes.  I used the same  free pattern from Natural Suburbia for these and I think they are just adorable.

Next up, I knit this little bracelet to showcase one of my buttons (I'm actually out of stock of buttons, so it's kinda strange that I knit this now, but there are more in the bisque kiln as we speak).
I find there are certain things that people at shows always ask "what do you do with this?"  So this time, I will have a few examples ready for them.  This is just a simple I-cord that I knit with 5 stitches until it was long enough to wrap around my arm 4 times, and then made a little loop on the end to string around the button.

And then these darling little strawberries!  I found them via Pinterest, but sadly there is no source for them.  There are no words, but the pictures pretty much tell you how to do it step by step.

They were meant for the berry bowls...

 ...but I have a sneaking suspicion that they may end up on these dessert plates.
My plan is to have a table set with three distinct place settings, and this would work very well for part of the dessert setting, don't you think?

And I finally got around to filling the candle pods with their candles.  My house smelled so good yesterday with the scent of beeswax lingering.

What are you crafting this week?

  1. ooooh, those strawberries are adorable. Most definitely the dessert plant. I love the i-cord bracelet. The button with is is beautiful.

  2. OMGosh Natalie - you have the most beautiful stuff. I just love it... ALL. :-)

    I don't remember if I said this last week, but I love your display accessories too... such a creative idea.
