I also sent something else with it but had to keep it under £2 which was quite difficult:
Crocheted flower book marks
Hello Mango taught me how to make the flower which is her own design & then I worked a chain & then secured a bead onto the chain with a few double crochets. The parcel was well received & she had to convinced her two year old son that the books marks were for Mummy! If they weren't so unsuitable for such a little tot I'd make him one just to keep the peace.
DD & her friend were with me when I wrapped up both the book & book marks & the pleading just went on & on & on & on....
so I made these the night before we went on holiday (as you do!):
Cream cotton with a black glass bead for DD
Purple cotton with a glass heart bead for DD
Brown cotton with a yellow wooden bead for DD's friend
Lilac cotton with a purple glass bead for DD's friend
Orange cotton with a Fair Trade Wire bead from Africa for my friend who happens to the other childs mother
and finally one for me:
Brown cotton with a cream wooden bead
A few more have been made since these photos were taken but I didn't want anymore photos. Just imagine different coloured cotton yarns with pretty beads & you've got it.
