THIS MONTH’S WINNER Susie France, from Brookfield, Qld for her Present Company project: “I loved your crafty Christmas entertaining ideas in the July 2015 issue (Vol 16 No 7). As I had my daughter-in-law’s family coming to visit for the first time from Columbia, we had to have Christmas in November! I used Sarah and Rachel Roxburgh’s ideas and slightly changed them to make a beautiful Christmas table. It looked amazing, so thank you very much. I am so proud of it that I wanted to share it with you.” Congratulations to Susie for her great effort.

a little cutie! MAKE MINE GEOMETRIC It may be small, but it’s perfectly formed! Patons’ crochet child’s cardigan is a network of triangles. It’s not only clever, it’s irresistibly sweet and quite simple to make in 4 ply Big Baby yarn. If you’d like to try your hand at this design, you’ll find the ‘Triangle Motif Cardi’ pattern in the Crochet Cuties book, available from your favourite craft outlet.

That is the question mark behind these tiny, utterly adorable pea coats. Their creator, Kelli Ward, of True Bias (www.truebias.com), originally made them as Xmas-tree decorations, but they are too cute to hide away for 11 months of the year. So, we suggest you make them as little house-decoration trinkets to get full mileage out of them. Kelli was good enough to share her tutorial with Homespun readers. MATERIALS: Square of felt; matching thread; sewing machine; scissors; sewing needle; black thread; black seed beads; fabric glue; scrap of lining fabric; copper wire; pliers. Step 1: Cut out felt shapes from the patterns on the Pattern Sheet, enlarged on a photocopier, if required. Step 2: With right sides together, sew shoulder seams, top of sleeve to armhole, and then sleeve and side seams, from wrist…

Soft yakka We all know that blokes love their sheds – and, for the most part, we females are happy to leave them to it. BUT even the girliest girl needs a basic tool kit for minor mends about the house. And in true Homespun form, we figure we can improve on the butch essentials with a little fabric and trim. Hence our pompom-trimmed jars and tool embellishments. Take jars, any jars, and encircle them in glued-on gingham, pompom and ribbon, then turn your attention to the hand tools, the handles of which get wrapped with leftover fabric – floral, of course! ID labels can be added to the cardboard circles on the ribboned lid tops. All done with a little household glue and a driving urge to pretty things up. Jackie…
