#CreativeKickstart July


#CreativeKickstart is a hashtag to share what we've been making and being inspired by each month, created by my merfriend Cuttlefishlove. I kept up with it for a few months last year but then lost track. This year I want to post a photo for each month. I think it will be really interesting to look back at the end of the year and see my creative journey!

In the photo for June I have included:

Mermaid-y fabrics: Most of July was taken up with working on things for March of the Mermaids, especially my costume. Although they didn't make it into my final costume, I learned how to make shell shaped bra cups, and I used lots of scale print, sparkly and sequinned fabrics.

Crochet: My other crafty obsession during July was crocheting. I learned how to make granny hexagons and decided to make enough of them to make a blanket. I made them while waiting for trains, on trains and buses, at home while watching Netflix...I'm hooked (pun intended).
