Do you ever look at a craft project and put it off for no reason? I’ve been stuck in a bit of a rut lately and am finding it so difficult to pick up any craft projects. Last night I finally took the latest Mollie Makes cover gift, a crochet charms bracelet kit, out of its packet.
Now everyone knows I can’t crochet so I feel a little sad when I see beautiful crochet projects everywhere. However, part of the fun of being creative is re-imagining things so I took the contents and made them a different way.
The Mollie Makes crochet charms bracelet kit from issue 57 contained a plastic crochet hook, 3 colours of yarn, and a couple of brass and glass charms.
Instead of making 3 crochet bracelets I knotted the three lengths together and used a knitting doll to make one long piece. I attached the three charms along the finished length and knotted it around my wrist.
The finished bracelet took about an hour and I made it whilst watching the last episode of Season 2 of The 100 – anyone else watched that programme? It was my guilty pleasure (until I watched all the episodes last night) so if you have any recommendations on what to watch next let me know 🙂
Every month I challenge myself to make the Mollie Makes cover gift (rather than hide them away in a drawer!). Here are my previous makes:
