Make a fake fur collar!! Fluffy love!

Hello and a very HaPpY cHriStMaS!!!!

This is a short post but one that may just solve your absolute last minute Christmas present dilemma!!! Oh yeh, read on…..

Thank you to the lovely Tilly Walnes, @tillybuttons for giving us this•*•*•free pattern•*•*• for her easy peasy fake (fur) collar….

Here is Tilly’s gorgeous collar….

And here is my version….


This was for my lovely friend Sarah…and she loved it!!!!

Here she is wearing it….


Cute heh?

I didn’t go with the slinky lining and instead used some left over red cotton gingham from my stash as my friend loves the stuff! The pattern uses a hook and eye to close it but I went with some gorgeous polka dot red ribbon! Very Christmassy!



This was a super easy pattern to follow with Tilly’s fab picture tutorial to follow…warning: there’s a whole lotta fluff!!
So if you’re looking for a last minute present to make, give it a go!!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 🎄

Simple crochet wrist cuff :: flower button

What a truly glorious day it has been today here in sunny Sussex…..

In between making the most of the weather and getting the washing drying outside, yes outside! wey hey! I took some time to take in the peace and quiet of my much loved Fridays (day off) to sit in my lounge and enjoy a cuppa sitting in the sunbeams….


Whilst sitting, it is impossible for me not to pick up the crochet bag and start a little chain or two and before I know it I’ve crocheted a small rectangle….then I add some edging, then a loop, followed by adding this sweet flower button….a wrist cuff!!


I’m not sure it it’s a little plain….or too much like a Wimbledon sweat band!! I thought about adding a crochet flower (got some lovely roses I’ve crocheted) or some pompoms as I have two very cute small pompom makers…but not sure yet…what do you think??

ImageI was a bit disappointed with the colours in the pic…the green was a really lovely pea green that just won’t come out as that colour in this photo…hmm…about time I got round to finding the lead for my proper camera rather than using my phone…it’s just not quite the same!

Still, I’m quite pleased with how it came out. I could do one with a picot edge or other slightly more artistic edging. It could be more narrow too…the possibilities are endless…

It’s a great starter pattern for someone new to crochet, I just made it up as I went along and I might try and put it down as a beginner tutorial…..
