Bathroom Makeover Part 1

A couple of weeks ago I was very daring and I bought a single crochet hook and a ball of yarn.  Hours of online research later (mainly Pinterest!), I have taught myself to crochet and have made items that I am already super pleased with!  The first was the hat that appeared in my #sundaysevens blog post.

The next thing I had my eye on was some crochet bunting.  The tutorial/pattern was very basic and I was a little dubious that it wouldn’t be very good.  However, it was easy to follow and produced some lovely little triangles that could be turned into bunting.

Our apartment is rented and furnished through the housing company that is linked with the company that Adam works for.  It is lovely, modern and simple; just the right size for us but the colour schemes are not ‘us’.  We like little pops of colour!  Yes, there are different colours around the apartment but they are mainly on the cream and brown spectrum.  This makes me a little sad.  So a few little projects popped into my head and here I am giving our apartment a little makeover!

Starting with the bathroom!

Sewing Selflessly

A few days agoI came across a blog by Jess at the Sometimes Sewist, which has inspired me to have a little think about the other things I could be making!

So:

I, Natalie, of Threads & Bobbins, pledge this Sew Selfless September to make at least 3 items for people other than myself!

There we go!  I’ve made my pledge and my first post will be on tomorrow once I’ve finished it 🙂  I like everything handmade, and handmade gifts made by me are even better!
