Wanna know why I love Instagram so much? Because of the awesome, talented, and beyond generous folk you meet on there. Like the amazing Sarah from Flo and Dot who, after I commented on a photo of hers on Instagram in which she showed off an insanely kitsch crocheted poodle cosy she had whipped up, asked if I would like a copy of the pattern to test for her!
Obviously I jumped at the chance - mainly because Sarah had designed the poodle cosy to fit her Meakin coffee pot, and not only do I own a Meakin coffee pot, but I have the exact same design as Sarah! It was obviously meant to be. Well, a few days on and I finished my very own poodle coffee pot cosy, thanks to a super clear and easy to follow pattern. The hardest part was deciding what colour to make - I went for this bright blue colour because it matched one of the colours in the design on my coffee pot. But really I want one in every colour possible!
Here he is with a vintage handmade poodle bottle cover I bought at a car boot sale a few years back - my next mission is to try and make a bottle cover so that when I give friends a bottle of booze it can have a crocheted poodle on it!
