Raccoon cocoon

Everyone seems to be making robes at the moment. When I was in Toronto at Christmas I popped into The Workroom on my last day and couldn’t bear not to get a significant meterage of Rae Ritchie’s beautiful flannel fabrics – I opted for Moon Phases and Foxtail Forest, which features owls, foxes, rabbits, squirrels and of course, raccoons.

So here’s my robe. I adapted it severely from a free pattern in my mum’s Prima magazine, because after buying the fabric I couldn’t afford to buy a pattern.

This robe is so cosy. I may never take it off. And of course, it has pockets.

Christmas 2016 (part 1)

So now that it’s March 2017 I should probably have already posted about all the crafting that kept me occupied up to Christmas. Last year I did individual posts for each item (!). This year it’s too high a hurdle for me, as evidenced by my already infrequent blogging.

En bref, Christmas 2016:

  • 1 duffel bag
  • 2 baable hats
  • 8 zip pouches
  • 1 fleecy bonnet
  • 1 fleecy raccoon gilet
  • 2 eye patches
  • 2 scrunchies
  • 1 knitted scarf
  • 1 lavender sachet
  • 1 tote bag
