Granny Square DS Case

Oh Granny squares, how I love you! You may have guessed that from previous post here , but to be honest I do believe you can never have enough granny squares in your house! One day I will get round to making a double bed sized throw but in the mean time I'll stick to the smaller projects like this Granny Square DS Case!

(Now the edges look all wibbly in these photos but I'm staring at it next to me and they are not! crazy..)

Now my Ds is all snuggly thanks to this Granny square case! yay!

This is worked from the granny square flap down.

Bread that looks like bread!

I have tried many times to make bread but have failed each time, either ending up with a brick or something that is tasteless. Well not anymore! Ok it I cheated and used a packet mix but I still had to knead it and everything...

Fine its a cheat but it was gorgeous! My house smells like freshly baked bread, I had a lovely lunch and it worked out at 25p per loaf! (If you're in the UK and dont mind buying short dated food take a look at Approved Food)

Pointless post but I'm so chuffed it worked lol

Little boy's Crochet Waistcoat

A bit of a confession here, I made this a while ago and took so long to take pictures and write the pattern up it no longer fits him which is why there are no action shots. Classic me. Anyway this is a free pattern for a very simple waistcoat. At the moment only available in size 3-6 months however I'm going to make a slightly altered version but with arms in a bigger size so will update when I have finished it!

Chick pea blondies??

O.M.G while browsing Pinterest I saw a recipe for healthy cookie dough dip - (havent tried it yet but deffo will) anyway, while browsing the site I saw a recipe for healthy blondies made with chickpeas! Now I always have a can of chickpeas in the cupboard so had to make them of course

They are meant to be baked in a bar but in an attempt to control portions as I'm losing weight (nearly 1 stone down! 7 pounds to go woo!) I made them in mini cake tins - I also did not have any cases in so I had to settle for squares of foil... anyway they may not look pretty but they taste amazing!

So if you like the sound of them check out Chocolate Covered Katie!

Crochet baby sandals

I have searched high and low for some soft baby sandals in the shops but the only ones I can find are made from hard material! Why would you put hard sandals on a 5 month old baby I dont know but there you go.

Anyway, I decided to make my own! Very easy and quick to make and due to the high ankle strap, they actually stay on!!!

(look how cute his little toes look!)
