ScrapHappy October 2022

After the success of the decorated bollards over the summer, it seemed a good idea to ring the changes and make some for autumn.

These two are not entirely scrappy, as I did have to use some new yarn for the little witch, but her hair, stuffing and the buttons on her hat and wand and for her eyes are all scraps. All the rest is either from my scrap collection or is other people’s unwanted (unloved) yarn.

I think these are my most photographed creations ever… do look out for them on social media and let me know if they crop up.

I’ve been inspired to write this (and future) ScrapHappy posts by Kate,  Tall Tales from Chiconia. On the fifteenth of every month lots of folk often publish a ScrapHappy post, do check them out:

Kate,  Gun, Eva,  Sue, Lynda, Birthe, Turid, Susan, Cathy, Tracy, Jill, JanMoira, SandraChrisAlys, ClaireJeanJon, DawnJuleGwen, Sunny, Kjerstin, Sue LVera, NanetteAnn, Dawn 2, Carol, Preeti, DebbieroseNóilin and Viv

If you fancy joining, contact Kate and she’ll add you to the list. It would be lovely to see more non-sewing posts, but any use of scraps is welcome.

    Hi there Jan,

    The bollards are looking fabulous. I think you may have set yourself a Forth Road Bridge task – everyone will now be waiting for the next reveal!

    Take care Nia x

  2. Those bollards are looking pretty good, and definitely eye-catching. Plus, the crochet will keep them nice and cosy in the coming winter…

  5. Bollard cosies! How amusing – the little witch is charming, even if slightly flaunting the rules (but what else would you expect from a witch)?!

  7. one time here, when there was a fibre and wool festival on, it was held in a town where there were a lot of bollards – a community incentive was formed an every one had a beanie created. Of course, many beanies disappeared quickly…but they weren’t really a fit for an adults’ head, more a doll!

    Those are fantastic Jan. I had seen the gourds but not the witch who is very cute. I hope the bollards bring people into the shop as well as causing amusemnet and a photo opportunity.
