Just a quick post to show a set of accessories I’ve made for the bedroom.
Firstly there’s a cover for a table I painted to protect it from getting scratched by the TV and DVD player sat on it. I made it from granny hexagons which I based on this pattern from Polka Dot Cottage, and used the join as you go technique.
Next I made a set of nesting bowls from a pattern by Tracey Todhunter in the Autumn 2013 issue of Love Crochet magazine.
I then adapted the base part of the pattern to make a pair of coasters. Here’s the whole set:
And here’s a selection of them in action on my bedside table…
The yarn is King Cole Bamboo cotton, which I just love as it has such a lovely feel and finish when made up.
This was a quick project just to add a few flashes of colour to the room in a useful way. I still have plenty of yarn left. I wonder what else I could make to match?
