Dress up your egg!

I've been busy with the knitting needles!  
I've created Ninja-style egg cosies...

 ...Ski-mask cosies...
 ...frilly fried egg cosies...
 ...and warm winter wraps...
...all to dress up a boiled egg!

Tatty Rag Horseshoe

I've been making more tatty rag hearts and I wanted to try something a little bit different so I went for a horseshoe.

Made with four different materials in a pink colourway : 

plain white, plain pink, pink gingham and pink floral. 

It is finished with pink satin ribbon bows and hanger and a 'Handmade by Tamara Jayne' heart tag.

White Love Bunting

This bunting is made using white handmade paper.  
I love the texture of the paper and the way it won't be cut neatly!
The letters are also cut from the same paper and all edges are smudged with dusky pink ink. 
The buttons on the outer flags are vintage pale pink. 
The string is white craft thread finished with a clear bead and pink and white gingham ribbon knot. 
 I made this for the City Crafter Challenge Blog 38
