No not a zombie tale, even though that seems to be the coloring of my foot at the moment. Whilst this is a great deal better than it has been, no longer yellow, green, black, red and everything in between, you can see the impact where I have clearly torn the tendon up the side of my ankle. I can at least sort of walk on it and I am at least able to shower again (baths do not get you clean imho) I am going to get some braces for support so that when I am riding it at least is -safer-.. Note to self.. PAY MORE ATTENTION TO WHERE YOU ARE WALKING..
As to other things I have been up to here is a little bit of a taste (it was very hard trying to get photos while unable to move into a better angle.. These will hopefully be up in Etsy by the end of the weekend along with some little kits I am putting together for something non-blythe related..
These have all been piling up in my stash, the market bags have been a great relaxer and I have others that are made in various thread including some antique cream and white that I bought online, also I have made some in newer threads which are Lizbeth size 80 in various variegated and solid colors which are lovely. These are very simple to make so if you are interested and have the items required the pattern is simply as follows;
1:6th Scale Market Bag
Crochet hook 0.75mm
Thread Lizbeth 80 or DMC 60
Small safety pin to use to mark the start of each round ( put this in after you have made the first stitch of each new round)
sc 6 in first chain
2 sc in each sc of previous row
sc 1, 2 sc in next st to end
sc 2, 2 sc in next st to end
Repeat this adding in an extra stitch for each new row until you get to the desired size (I usually choose between 6 and 10 stitches)
ch 5, skip 2, sc in next st around until you are at the last chain, ch 3, dc into sc of previous round,
repeat this for 4-6 rows
3ch, 3 hdc or dc in each ch space around
sc around for 4-6 rounds
sl st to join ch 1 turn, sc in the next 3-4 stitches, ch1 turn
sc in each st 3-4, ch 1 turn (repeat this for the desired handle length)
Fasten off, sew handle to opposite side of the bag and weave in the tail..
Voila super cute useful bag for blythe or other fashion doll.
Have a fantastic evening and be sure to let me know if you make one, as always I would love to see it so leave a comment showing where you have it posted and I will be sure to peek..
