Carved leaf pendants

Here are some newer versions of the wooden leaf pendants I blogged about a little while ago.
It’s been a very very very long time since I’ve posted, and I’m sorry! I’ll really try to post more now that I’m free from school for about 18 months! Longest summer holiday ever. I’m so happy to not be going back anytime soon, even though I’ll miss it. Also, I was in Portugal for ten days, so I couldn’t exactly post when I was there, seeing as I was in a house/tent in a rural mountain valley with no internet. It was lovely.
I’m making a lot of these, with maybe the intention of setting up an Etsy to sell them? I just don’t know if anyone would be interested. Would any of you guys be interested? They probably wouldn’t be over โ‚ฌ15 so not exactly bank breaking. The backs can also have a custom design on them ๐Ÿ™‚
Here’s some I’ve made lately (back and front).

Woolen Cloak

I got myself some nice felted woolen cloth at the Battle of Clontarf reanactment thingy that came to Dublin last weekend. It was pretty awesome, if I may say so myself, although I was more interested in the traditional crafts that were being shown in the viking village. And so I made myself a cloak, despite the fact I only had 1×1.5 m2 of cloth. I had to do a patchwork hood with the cloth I’d cut off the edges while I was rounding them and the neckline when I cut it out. I attempted to make a pettern but it came out a bit… funky, cause I don’t remember any measurements I made. I remember how to do it but I don’t remember why, if you get my gist. I also made a little swirled wire clasp which actually works pretty well! I hand sewed everything. I can’t wait to use it in the woods! It’ll be good camouflage.
Here’s some photos:

Crochet Hats

I still look forward to the day when I will finally be able to spell chrochet croshet crotchet crowshet croquet crochet right the first time round (okay I’m not actually that bad)
Anyway here are some hats I crocheted a few days ago! I did a funny stitch on the blue one and on the green/purple one I did a stitch underneath the large circle I made and crocheted downwards from that. I can’t really explain it, as I just learned to crochet and I don’t know any of the proper terms or stitches yet!
Here’s some rare photographs of my hats, my messy room and my face, all of which are hardly ever seen in public.
