Scrap Happy April 2022

My Scrap offering this month is the second cover for a chair seat for Mrs Snail (see the link to Jan below) for her new shop. This one was knitted using a base colour of oatmeal with flashes of green, lilac and brown, stripes of a novelty purple yarn – think tinsel in red green and blue with lots of soft purple strands mixed in – and several small balls of other plummy colours.

Newly knitted
Attached to it’s backing (part of an ols curtain) and stapled to one of the chairs in the shop. On its left is the first one I did in crochet.

Scrap Happy is curated by Kate and Gun (links below) on the 15th of each month – a glorious collection of posts about making things from all kinds of scrap. Do have a look – inspiration may strike!

      That is my favourite so far too! But I like that style and I know not everyone does so to demonstrate that things made from scrap can be less exuberant and maybe even a bit posh I am making lots of different types.

      I Know Jan appreciates it and I really hope it shows cutomers what is possible.

    it looks very inviting and comfy to sit on. I’m sure it will inspire those who visit the shop.

      The fluffy yarn was a lucky find – goodness knows why I had it! Without it I think the cover would have been rather plain and boring.
