Teeny Tiny Crochet Bedding Tutorial

Hello! Welcome to my cutest project yet 🙂 don’t these little bunnies look ever so snuggly in their Granny Square beds?!

I love a quick project that works up fast and uses up little odd balls of yarn. Alternatively this might be a great introduction to crochet for you! I would recommend Bella Coco, Happy Berry Crochet and Coastal Crochet tutorials to learn new stitches, and grow your confidence. All of these ladies explain things so well, and you can pause, rewind and actually concentrate in peace and quiet in your own time, what a bonus!

This is what you’ll need to make your very own set of Crochet bedding that is perfect for little hands and also Sylvanian Families, Happy Land, playmobile, or other small toy friends to enjoy.

ABBREVIATIONS

CH- chain

HTR – half treble

Jewellery

Handmade jewellery 


 For the longest time I can remember, I absolutely love making jewellery. Right from making paper beads at brownies, creating button jewellery with my friends to constantly making jewellery with my mum… I adore seeing how much joy can come from creating something you can wear.

Some of my necklaces are for sale locally at Stafford Cottage in Minchinhampton or online at my etsy shop. 

I like the freedom of mixing colours to match an exact item, like this beautiful print from @lilyandmeclothing. That spring /summer colour palette is so pretty. I love the pops of yellow and turquoise! And these beautiful Adini summer prints …with colours like these, it’s easy to get inspired!  

Hand mixing that purple was so much fun! I had blackberry stained hands for a good while! I love the subtle tone changes you can create when mixing colours yourself. There are no limits! 

This was a new design trial – I’ve lived in it so far 🙂 

This was a recent Commission – to match a floral print skirt for a wedding. 

I relish the challenge of matching colours to make a bespoke piece. I’m always happy to chat through an idea – drop me an email! 

You can find my ready to ship jewellery here – I hope you have a wonderful day!
