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!

Sorry I'm a bit behind on sharing my Piggy MCAL updates, the last few days have been pretty bad for me so I'm even behind on the MCAL as I've not been able to do any crochet. I am hoping to catch up today though and I'm even hoping to have my piggy complete by the end of the evening as well :-D.

Anyway here is Clue 4 which is the body, and I'm making the solid coloured piggy. I've included photos of all the clues I've done so far and I even held the parts together to start seeing how my piggy will look. I can't wait to finish! #piggymcal #melissascrochetpatterns #mcal #mysterycrochetalong #cal #crochetwip #crochet #crochetpiggy #crochetpig #amigurumi #amigurumipig #amigurumipiggy #threebearsyarn #cotton #cottonyarn #themermaidspursehandmade #handdyedyarn #veganyarn #craftastherapy #crochetaddict #crochetersofig #crochetersofinstagram

Sorry I am sharing this with you so late but I have been really looking forward to sharing these with you :-). My friend Donna @clutterbug89 and I decided to do a yarn swap together and this is the stunning parcel of treats she got me!!! I love everything so much ♥ it's a box of heaven and I cannot wait to make some beautiful things with these lovely yarns. I honestly adore everything but if I had to pick my top 3 they would be the BB8 magnet, the purple banana yarn and the hand dyed yarn from Little Boo Yarns. Thank you again so much Donna for spoiling me, this box of treats made me very happy and still does now as I look at these photos! 》》》PLEASE SWIPE TO SEE ALL THE PHOTOS 》》》 I have tried to tag the businesses/companies I could find/knew but apologies if I've forgotten any and you see something from you that isn't tagged. Just tell me and I'll happily add you :-). Well I think that's all ♥ later I'll pop back and add some of these photos without being in a collage so you can see them better. If you see anything you want to know more about just ask and if I can help I will. Oh and tomorrow I'll share photos of the box of treats I put together for her :-) I loved doing it and was so happy when I heard how much she loved hers as well! #happymail #yarndelivery #yarnswap #yarn #veganyarn #yarnaddict #yarnlove #handdyedyarn #themermaidspursehandmade #littlebooyarns #louisehortondesigns #bananayarn #yarnsyarnsyarns #stylecraftyarn #stylecraftsundaedk #alizecottongold #thestitchinghour #handmadebuttons #handmadestitchmarker #bb8 #bb8droid #crochetpattern #crochetpigpattern #akindmamabakery #veganbrowniemix #vegantreats #clutterbug89

The cushion of safety square from Helen Shrimpton's Heart of friendship is so soft. Loved the effect of the puff stitches. :) #heartoffriendship #crochet #haken #ganchillo #ssdk #stylecraftspecialdk #pippincrochetclub #themermaidspursehandmade #crochetersofinstagram #crocheting #

Puffins are a distinct sight here in the North East of England. They have black and white feathers and a stunning orange and yellow beak. But, they actually shed their colourful beaks in winter! This colorway is a tribute to a truly unique... And noisy bird. #puffin #orange #handdyed #handdyedyarn #inspiredbythesea #themermaidspursehandmade #northeastengland #indiedyer #birdlover #farneislands #croquetisland

A mermaid's purse is another name for a shark egg casing. Sharks have been my favorite animals since the age of 5. So when I started my own business I knew exactly what it should be named. This colour way is hand dyed to reproduce the dark blue background and white spots of whale shark. #themermaidspursehandmade #shark #whaleshark #sockyarn #4ply #dyersofinstagram #handdyedyarn #inspiredbythesea

It's no secret...I love cotton. It's great for babies, those with skin allergies and vegans. It's machine washable and super durable. I was so happy when #threebearsyarn kindly allowed me to play with dyeing their yarn! "Plankton" is inspired by the tiny little animals and plants that float at the surface of the ocean. #yarnporn #dyersofinstagram #cotton #themermaidspursehandmade #buybritish
