Bags, hearts and boobs

I've been crocheting like a mad person over the last couple of days making things for a couple of upcoming craft fairs.

Things are made a million times easier by haing a lovely simple pattern to follow. Such as....
This fantastic pattern by Tangled Happy. The boutique bag is totally gawwwwjus and quick to make. So far I've made three to sell, and have at least 4 more colour combos to make.

I've also been working on making some Christmas tree decorations. I've made a few of these hearts using the pattern by heloisev
These are the ones I've done already. Again such a simple pattern and so so fast to make
I've also been making things to celebrate and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Like for example these pink ribbon mug cozies

I've made an album on my Facebook page where by everything in there has 20% off until 31st of October

Ummmm I thinks thats everything for now...I've made so much over the last few days, for the most up to date stuffs check out my Facebook page.... With a Cherry on Top
