Crochet - Pebbles, Mushrooms and more
You'll learn how to make little cosy covers from pebbles, stones, rocks, and sweet mushrooms for some whimsy
These step-by-step videos will show you how I make my crochet covered stones (pebbles, rocks) and mushrooms to add to a scene of whimsical fantasy.
While being only semi-practical (they can be paper weights if you want), the crochet covered stones are something uniquely special to gift to friends, to people who need something lovely to hold onto (they're great for gifting to friends going through tough times; somehow they offer something to focus on and hold). Can be created out of found rocks and regular string/twine/yarn.
The mushrooms are a great way for you to move past need to follow patterns, and step into creating pieces of small sculptural work. They're fun and have little personalities all of their own. You'll learn crochet techniques that you can use for other projects as well.
I'll be adding more small and whimsical crochet over time (in 2 or so months) - I'm thinking something leafy, ferny or similar to add to a rock, mushroom scene.....
Hi, I’m an artist, author, creative maker & mentor. My ethos is about slowing down, creating intentionally & gently guiding Creatives on how to listen to your inner whisper.
I’m also a mother, lover of walking bare-feet in the forest & swimming naked in the ocean, textile crafter & creative teacher.
I share stories & heart-ful living, in a slow intentional manner. I’m truly happiest talking with my flowers in the garden, a light sprinkle of rain tumbling on the heads of my children who are gathering blooms beside me. And watching the way the light falls on the tall gum trees in our forest.
The complex aspect of me means that I love both the quiet of crafting & art-making alone, but also feel energised by spending time with other creatives sharing our time together, stitch by stitch, word by word.
Tea & cake, & lots of messy fabrics & tangled threads, along with gathered leaves, twigs, seedpods or bird nests play a big part of my life
