My (utterly unseasonal) prototype - thoughts on any more?

Apologies for C-word connotations!
This one will be for Gdcs, but wondering whether to make more for their respective school fairs (pre school and primary) in late November. They always want raffle prizes, usually nothing expensive - would a couple of these be good, do you think?

It is lovely, a lot of work.

Baggs Mon 20-Apr-20 19:51:19

I think a couple of those would be very good 🙂

It's lovely.

I'd certainly buy one

Gorgeous! There are some really talented people on GN smile

That's really lovely and would be excellent for the Christmas Fair. There, I've used the C word!

Witzend Mon 20-Apr-20 20:36:55

Many thanks, everybody - I’ll get on with another. (Anything but housework!).

Really like that, beautifully done!

I'm sure they'd make very welcome raffle prizes - lovely.

Yes, I agree, they are lovely and should be very popular.

That’s lovely Witzend.

Very cute!

NannyJan53 Tue 21-Apr-20 07:13:58

You are very talented. I would buy one!

It is never to early to prepare smile

I would buy a couple of those. They are beautifully done.

Just in case anyone wants to know, the pattern for the actual wreath came from a downloadable pattern on the Lovecrafts website. I can send a link if anyone wants. It was amazingly easy, and I’m useless with complicated patterns.

However I didn’t care for the decorations on that one, so the snowmen are from the mini ones in Jean Greenhowe’s Christmas Special book. Also v easy, if a mite fiddly to sew up.

Love it.

Nortsat Wed 22-Apr-20 11:52:11

Beautiful... I’ll buy one too. (C-word emoji alert ...) 🎄

Gaunt47 Wed 22-Apr-20 11:57:55

Those wonderful little snowmen reminds me - does anyone know of a book with crochet patterns for similar items?
I have a neighbour who was a wonderful crocheter and thought it might be good to get her interested again.
She's shut in and has lost interest in everything sadly.

@Gaunt47, I should imagine that if you do a search for ‘Christmas crochet’ on e.g. the Lovecrafts website, plenty would come up - there are masses of patterns on there and so many people enjoy making C-word things.

Beautifully made Witzend, at present I am making a pair of boot cuffs! got some chunky wool so thought I would give it a go.

Witzend Wed 22-Apr-20 14:04:10

PS, Gaunt47, I just had a look at Lovecrafts, there’s plenty coming up, inc. a little snowman. Lots of patterns are downloadable and there are some free ones, too.

Oh that's lovely Witzend. I think they would go down a treat as raffle prizes etc. - wouldn't little children just love one of these!!!

Gaunt47 Wed 22-Apr-20 18:02:33

Witzend you are lovely, thanks for responding. I only do stitching, and didn't know where to look for crochet. blush
