Hello! Are you ready for another dose of fabulous Made It entries? Thought so…
The following 5 entries are from one of our regular Made It challengers who is UBER creative, SUPER talented and a WHIZZ with yarn…not to mention a very entertaining writer too :)
Linen Crochet Sunhat by B*A*M Crafts
Looking ever so smug – and who can blame her! (you’ll have to click on the link to see what I mean ;) ) in her STUNNING blue crochet linen sunhat is Beth of B*A*M Crafts. Her hat is beautiful, the stitches look exotic and the linen looks amazingly soft – I’ve never actually used linen before, hmmm. Lucky for us there’s a link to a free, chart based pattern YEEEHA
Brian The Amigurumi Bear by B*A*M Crafts
When I first saw Brian (an excellent name for a bear!) the amigurumi bear, I was immediately taken in by his bright colours and big beautiful eyes, and once I read Beth’s post I learned that he was styled and inspired by her niece. I love the addition of his blue waistcoat and pink daisy – a very funky bear indeed
Warden Owls by B*A*M Crafts
And while we’re on amigurumi toys, here are two gorgeous air raid warden owls making their cameo appearance – also made by Beth
Tunisian Crochet Phone Pouch by B*A*M Crafts
Ahhhh, I love this technique. Here is a stunning Tunisian crochet phone pouch that was quickly made by Beth as a “pick-me-up” for herself while in a pit of despair with the sudden realisation that she had (at least) 15 WIP’S…..some of which are actually lost!
Lace Shawl by B*A*M Crafts
Just in case you thought that crochet was all Beth could do (pfffffft) here is her beautiful KNITTED lace shawl in such lovely colours. If you’ve never blocked anything before (putting my hand up) then click on the link for some seriously good advice – with pics!
Bunting by B*A*M Crafts
And if you have a heart beat, then you automatically LOVE bunting!! Here is Beth’s very own pattern for knitted bunting – click on the link for a whole lot more to woo you. Oh, and if you make some please be sure to share your pics on her facebook page. Go wild!

Pretty Bunny by Angella de Jager
Say hello to this sweet toy bunny, made by Angella de Jager, who is joining our gowing family of bunnies in this months challenge. Angella is an incredible artist who sews, crochets, paints, writes etc etc etc and whose work always inspires, invokes a smile and a lovely feeling of happiness. You can view some more of her work here. As for this very cute & quirky little bunny, she ticks all three boxes and more :)
The next three entries are from the wonderfully colourful and very talented Madeleine from Pretty Blue Bird Studio
Rose Heart Bunting by Pretty Blue Bird Studio
You see! We all LOVE bunting and this rose heart bunting captures that feeling perfectly. This particular bunting was custom made and is the crochet version of her client’s logo – how cool is that!
Floral Bunting by Pretty Blue Bird Studio
And another string of loveliness. Madeleine is a master with colour – mixing and matching so beautifully and her photos are magazine quality. This floral bunting is stunning and should be hanging in gardens everywhere. (Pssst, although The Inspiration is stunning, I prefer her version!!!)
Hand Knitted Socks by Pretty Blue Bird Studio
And wasn’t I just saying how clever she was with colour?! WOW, these hand knitted socks are bold, bright and beautiful. I love how they are slightly different too with a splashes of red at the top. Even though summer is approaching us in here in Cape Town, I’m pretty sure she’ll get away with wearing them all the time.
