I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas... November 12, 2017 10:08
Although here at London Craft Club HQ we love crafting all year round (I mean, who doesn't?!) there's something about the colder weather that's been creeping in that makes us want to craft constantly. But not just any crafts - we are pulling out all the 'cold weather crafts.' Those projects that you can snuggle up with on the sofa with a huge mug of tea while watching Elf. (Yeah, we have started watching Christmas movies already, someone should really stage an intervention.)
Despite it not being the most Christmassy colour ever, we've definitely noticed a colour scheme running through our current projects. Except we liked pink before it became the 'millennial pink' colour of choice.
Nothing says warm and cosy like a spot of knitting. Sonia knitted up these Bjork-inspired fluffy pink mohair wrist warmers recently and we are totally smitten with how soft and snuggly they are!
And if knitting is a bit outside your comfort zone then why not give arm knitting a go? It's much easier than regular knitting and a hundred times faster too! In fact, it's so quick that you can whip up a scarf in two hours, so perfect for when relatives turn up unannounced and you have nothing to give them. Our Arm Knitting Workshop has you covered.
Christmas is the season for PARTIES. Whether it's the work party, a family get together, dinner and drinks with your friends, everyone's social calendars seem full to bursting at this time of year. And if you're in need of new accessories without breaking the bank then fear not, our Box Clutch Workshop will save the day! Not only will you make your own bespoke party clutch bag, but you'll be able to use your new found skills to make more bags after the workshop - one to go with every outfit maybe?
And of course no Christmas celebration is complete without a Christmas tree, and no tree is complete without DECORATIONS. While you can buy some lovely ones in the shops, there is nothing as special and meaningful as a handmade decoration. Our Heirloom Tree Decoration Workshop will show you how to make your own luxury hand-stitched ornament that would make a thoughtful gift, or a beautiful addition to your own tree. What do you think about pink for Christmas? Do you love quirky new colours or good old red and green?
