Kye and I have been busy with a few nature crafts for Autumn. We found the inspiration for these crafts in a lovely book called Earthwise by Carol Petrash. This is a wonderful book divided up into the different seasons with lovely projects for each season. We used some pine cones, acorns and felt for the cone people and for the Autumn leaf picture, we used some paint, pretty handmade paper and a toothbrush with an oak leaf as our template. He is thoroughly enjoying our Autumn crafting and is so exited to discover what he will be busy with each day.
These are the sweet slippers that I mentioned in yesterday’s post. My mom has been knitting slippers for everyone in our family, they are truly divine! I have never worn such cozy slippers in my life and even our older teenage daughters adore wearing them too! We have adapted a slipper pattern found in the book called The Children’s Year. Each pair my mom makes for us is such a special gift.
What seasonal crafting have you been busy with?
PS I have added a free tutorial over on Ravelry, it’s a tutorial on how to stuff and finish off your knitted animal patterns, if you would like to download it go here.
