April Made It – Tango Tunic, Cute Cardi, Chick ‘n Bunny, a WOW before/after and a sweet Ladybird or two…

I must be getting OLD

Where have the days gone where I could go out on a 12 hour Hen Party marathon, dance the night away and bounce out of bed the next morning!??? I am only too happy I turned down most of the shots/cocktails/drinks that came my way but sadly still managed to crawl my way through Sunday feeling like a truck ran me over. We had a fun filled day however, starting with a life drawing art class (heehee…yes, this was FUN FUN FUN), followed by a Cuban dinner with the boys, a few pre wedding games, a little dancing, some fab’80’s music and pool playing (yeah, random I know!)

With 5 sleeps to go, we are all frantically getting all the final preps in place for the wedding on Saturday…..and I should be practising my speech which I haven’t even written yet. Eeeeeeek!!!!

Luckily for me, I always seem to wait for the last second to get things done so with all things being equal, I should be able to pull something out the bag in the next 5 days……oh jeepers, I hope so!!!

So, as usual, I’m delighted to show off the latest Made It entries to you –  I’m sure that this next batch will inspire you as much as it has me- I LOVE LOVE LOVE that the Season-themed entries are coming in too!

First up we have not one, but TWO entries from Laura of Cute As A Button!

Cute Cardigan by Cute As A Button

How delicious is this?!!! I can just imagine the little girl who is going to be gifted with this sweet cardi, spinning around and showing off her new pressie with utter glee in her face! The adorable little flowers just make it, don’t ya think!. The pattern looks amazing, so simple and so effective.

And from the producer of Timmy and Tamara, meet Chick and Bunny! Even though Laura doesn’t have kiddies of her own, she is Super Mom in my books…these little creatures were just whipped out of ….oh, barely nothing…just some yarn and fingers! Laura, this would have taken me EONS!!!!!!!!! Envious.com heehee

(ps, even though Chicky and Bunny have huge personalities, this pic would only upload in tiny!!!)

Tango Tunic by MustHaveNow

This beautiful Doris Chan inspired crocheted tunic is STUNNING and looks fab on you Heidi! The colours are gorgeous and the stitching is so delicate – this is definitely a garment for all seasons, so you nailed the theme on the head too!! I did some snooping and found some more of Heidi’s wonderful projects on Ravely, have a little looky 🙂

My heart melted when I saw this fantastic before & after from Laura of My House In Africa!!!

Chair Love by My House in Africa

This wrought iron rocking chair is now the “go-to” place for peace and quite…and a spot of knitting of course! There’s always something beautiful about busting the budget and buying something special…it seems to mean that much more. I love that Laura opted for a burst of bright and wonderful colour – I can picture it rocking gently, under a blue sky…. on the “verandah”!!!!

Is Laura the sub-theme of the April Made It?!!!

Ugly Bug Ball by Knitpurl83

Our 3rd LAURA…this time, from Knitpurl83!!!

Ugly Bug Ball would have been the last three words I would have used to describe these Lovely Lady BIrds!!!! And to top it off, they are “season” themed coasters too! Laura’s son is the inspiration behind these cutie-pies awwww….but it doesn’t stop here, Laura has lots more fun projects on the go….just to make us all feel like total failures heehee!!! Go and check them out here for links to the pattern xxx

Well, that’s all for tonight! Hope you enjoy browsing these great blogs as much as I have 🙂

 Oh, and don’t worry…I am working on a very super cool PRIZE for the winner this month, so keep a lookout, I will post a pic in the next day or two!

  1. Aw, thanks for such a lovely write up-you make me blush! Laura’s clearly a great name to have 🙂 And I especially love that patchwork chair-it’s just amazing!! Have a great time at the wedding 🙂

  2. Ooooo so exciting to see my work in other people’s mentions. Oh and for the record it’s more than a doris chan inspired top-it’s her exact design. Although it looks very different than on the model (don’t they always)
    My favourite is the chair! I’m about to start to cover cushions for a loveseat, this is a great inspiration. Good luck with wedding preps!

  3. Hi Maryanne, the Bride to be is very beautiful, and I like you all Idea of her look for the occasion.Thanks for sharing the pics of the Entries Participants. They’re all so well crafted. When is the last day of entering? I do have A project in progress. Be Blessed, Mtetar

  4. So many more lovely projects! I really should get a move on with mine (I keep getting distracted by other projects.. and forgetting to photograph any of them!)
