MADE it... {04}

This week I was inspired by Leonie of Kiwi at Heart.  She made a few awesomely cute handles for crochet hooks.

I didn't make these the same.  Her hook-handles, I must admit, look way cooler.  These handles are made with an oven-bake clay called Sculpey.  I think it's kind of like FIMO clay.

The clay comes in little packets in a whole range of different colours.  I used only a quarter of one of the 3 small packets I bought - I thought I'd need heaps!  But, it turns out I didn't really need much at all.

I had to put my initials on one.

I hope you're having a creative week.  If you have and if you've blogged about it, why not share a link to your post in the comments below?

Take care, and enjoy the rest of the weekend.  I'm off to finish sewing a retro handbag, made from a genuine retro deck chair cover...



  1. they look awesome! I love the stripy one. I had thought about trying that too...when the kids are back at school! lol.

    1. Thank you :)
      I made one long skinny white thing and wound it around the blue, then rolled it flat.
      After it was baked, the white had turned into a 'dirty-see-through-ish' white, it's hard to tell in the photos. I was a bit sad about that, haha.


I love comments :)
