My favourite kind of washing on the line :) look out for some new colorways in the shop including one inspired by the amazing mood boards at the Pippin Crochet Club. Oh and in case you noticed I've let my garden go wild to help bee populations. They love the heather :) #indiedyer #wool #cotton #dyersofinstagram #themermaidspursehandmade #smallbusinessowner #letitgrow #pippincrochetclub #moodboards #

I often get asked about the origin of my business name. Since I love sharks and mermaids "The Mermaid's Purse" was a perfect fit. "An egg case or egg capsule, colloquially known as a mermaid's purse or devil's purse, is a casing that surrounds the fertilized eggs of some sharks, skates, and chimaeras. They are made of collagen protein strands." #themermaidspursehandmade #smallbusinessowner #inspiredbythesea #sharks #mermaid #britishseaside #bluereefaquariumtynemouth

I love doing custom colorways! They give me a chance to play around with new colour combinations. I do custom colours in yarn cakes, hanks and mini skiens. I can also make custom kits for any KAL or CALs #themermaidspursehandmade #dyersofinstagram #indiedyer #rainbow #cal #kal #newyarn #customyarn #sockyarn #cotton #alpaca

Yesterday afternoon I was finally able to do a photoshoot of my Piggy I did for @melissascrochetpatterns MCAL. Sorry it took so long as I meant to post them that evening and I forgot so here I am now :-). I hope you like the photos of my finished piggy ♥. I've done a photo collage and then if you swipe you'll see some individual photos so you get to see bigger photos.

I used a free pattern for this mystery crochet along by @melissascrochetpatterns and for tje yarn I was able to combine my favourite cotton yarn and my love of hand dyed yarn. This yarn is hand dyed by @themermaidspursehandmade and the colourway is Urchin. The yarn base is @threebearsyarn Affection 100% Cotton, aran weight. For more details check out my ravelry project here https://www.ravel.me/bedcrafter/pm

Again sorry for taking so long to share finished photos of my Piggy. To follow will be a quick video I took too :-). #piggymcal #melissascrochetpatterns #mcal #mysterycrochetalong #cal #amigurumi #amigurumipiggy #amigurumipig #crochet #crochetpiggy #crochetpig #themermaidspursehandmade #handdyedyarn #threebearsyarn #cotton #cottonyarn #veganyarn #ravelryproject #craftastherapy #crochetaddict #crochetersofig #crochetersofinstagram

I have been meaning to post this for days so I apologise for showing you so late. I have been so ill lately and today I'm really not doing well :-( and the heat really isn't helping!

I finished my Piggy MCAL late Monday night and this is the quick photo I took that night to show it finished :-). I've been meaning to do a proper photo shoot since but I'm behind due to having a bad week. I'm hoping to do one tomorrow though so I should be back with more very soon :-D. I hope you like seeing this photo to give you a glimpse into how my piggy looks finished.
In case you'd like to know the pattern is by @melissascrochetpatterns and the yarn I've used is hand dyed by @themermaidspursehandmade on my favourite yarn base, @threebearsyarn Affection 100% Cotton aran weight. I got to use my favourite yarn for amigurumi and combine it with my love of hand dyed ♥. I love this colourway, it's called Urchin and I even have some left over!
