Half fabric, half knit

I didn't plan on it, but 2014 is turning out to be the year for finishing UFO's (UnFinished Objects). I cheated a bit with this one, because it was supposed to be a square pillow made out off little squares (8 knit and 8 purl). It turned out being a rectangular pillow with a back out of fabric instead of a knitted one. I ordered the fabric some time ago from Spoonflower, a company which makes it possible for people to design and sell their own fabric. The colours go well together, so I really like the end result.

Creatief met kurk

Last year I saw a picture on the internet of cute little christmas trees made out of wine corks. It turned out lots of people around me were collecting their corks, some even for years, because they didn't want to throw them out. When they heard I wanted to make something out of them they kindly donated their collection to me. I had so many corks that I tried some other shapes as well.

Happy Valentine's day!
