Crochet a Pumpkin Pie!

This funny little thing dropped into my inbox via – it’s a PIE!

The original is at 

It’s by Alison Hoffman who is a bit of a crochet madwoman – she crocheted David Tennant and the Tardis, among other things! There is PLENTY of inspiration on her blog! She even made a Justin Timberlake doll and GAVE IT TO HIM IN PERSON!

*Note to self: make dolls of Brad Pitt, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Welling and Brandon Routh. And also Chris Pine. And Chiwetel Ejifor.

The funniest and most inspirational factoid about this crochet pie is that she filled it with scented stuffing, so it smells like pumpkin pie too!

Stitch translations: where it asks for a hdc, crochet a UK HTR. Where it asks for a sc, crochet a UK DC.

Girlie pattern time!

The most edible bag you’ll ever come across is to be found at OURHOUSE. Not our house! OURHOUSE! It’s a cupcake bag, small enough to be a purse too, with a drawstring finish. You can, of course, make it in whatever cupcake colours you like and adorn it with the sprinkles (beads) of your choice!

It’s quick, easy and all in UK dc so you should be able to whip one up in no time!

These would be cute gifts and favours!

Visit OURHOUSE for the pattern!

Apple cosies pattern

Found this at the Guardian’s website – I didn’t know they were into this sort of  thing! The Loud Daughter is into apples at the moment, which I’m obviously encouraging, but they can get a bit bruised in her school bag (it’s too small and trendy for a lunchbox and she’s “not at junior school any more, you know”).

So I found this pattern. How cute are these cosies?! They’re even non-heinous enough for a teenager. Win!

It’s in UK terms already, another win, plus I’m sure they won’t mind if you put other fruit in them :>

Pattern here.

Little Pumpkins by Vicki Brown

This talented designer appears in magazines. My daughter, the Tall One,  particularly likes her tops and has compiled a “Mum, can you make me this?” list!

Today we’re looking at her Little Pumpkins patterns, already in UK terms, on her blog.

These are pretty easy and quick. You could use different colours to crochet other fruits, but I love pumpkins!
