Look what I made… from a Wonderful book!

I’ve been writing (and reading) blog posts for around 6 months now and I’m really enjoying the sharing of ideas and inspiration from around the world. Isn’t it amazing that we can make something which we share via our blogs and people from far flung destinations can see, comment and be inspired within minutes of posting- amazing!

And something I wouldn’t have known about if it wasn’t for other bloggers sharing is the WONDERFUL book ‘Let’s Go Camping! Crochet your own adventure’ by Kate Bruning

I heard about this book from two other bloggers and I’m sure many of you will have discovered it too by now:

Crochet Camping In Miniature!

I ordered my copy and have decided to give it to my daughter for Christmas but when commenting on Sewchet’s blog post I came up with the idea to crochet a little sample from the book to give with the book. Seeing a little ready made piece will hopefully compel my daughter to get making!

So here it is…

Isn’t it gorgeous?! Such a sweet little sailing boat which was super quick to make. I’m sure she’ll be delighted and can get crocheting the rest of her camping adventure at Christmas time…

The book has fabulous patterns to create a whole ‘Swallows and Amazons’ camping scene. Throughout the book the author uses Playmobil figures to model the tents, boats, caravan and even a canal boat. But I thought my daughter’s Sylvanian’s could do a good job too!

Stormy, wet and windy weather has arrived on our shores today so it was challenging taking these photos without the little boat blowing away!

I can highly recommend this book 🙂

Happy Crocheting Everyone…

  1. Wow that’s so adorable! Think I might have to have a little look on Amazon for this book. I’d love to make stuff like this instead of predictable blankets, although I could keep making those for years to come yet! X
