Sewing for Pleasure Show 2015


We have had a fantastic weekend at the Sewing For Pleasure show at the Birmingham NEC. I love having a stand at this show but it takes a lot of preparation and organisation. I always forget to pack something...this year it was my step stool.

It was lovely to see so many returning costumers from previous years shows and hearing about their completed projects from my patterns.  If you have made any of my patterns I would love to see a photo and if you don't mind put up on my pinterest site.  

Getting unpacked....

Stand D22, I was pleased with how colourful the stand was this year....

Wool kits were a very big seller this year.

Thank you,

Seasons Dolls


We are having very busy month at Ali Crafts Designs.  Lots of new patterns have been added to my Etsy and Ravelry store.  Please take a look around. I would love to hear from anyone who has made any of my patterns.

All four seasons dolls are now finished and patterns online.  These dolls are simple to make. Each has her own little bag and a larger matching child sized bag.

I love getting projects finished and I have also just completed a Love Heart Granny square blanket.

This blanket is simple to make with a few little challenges for beginners. Its deal for someone looking to learn something a bit more challenging than a plain granny square.

We had a super crochet workshop last Friday and my students really enjoyed working on the Bright Blanket pattern. It really works well in different colours.  Here is some of their lovely work..

Happy crocheting,
