2020 Creatiev Challenge & 9 projects to keep you busy

April 2020 Creative Challenge – Sewing / Knitting / Crochet

I must admit that I am way more comfortable when it comes to knitting and sewing than crochet. (Thought that I should maybe try this 12 day beginner crochet course) I have tried my hands at crochet before but is is just something that I really struggle with. When I joined the creative challenge way back in 2015 I completed a small hand knitted scatter cushion! I did the knitting and my mom kindly sewed it together for me.

I would really like to try making some COVID protection DIY masks by See Kate Sew this month.

I also have a few Mollie Makes DIY kits at home still. I love these kits as you can really spend an hour or two and get it done. I made this teeny tiny Lion the night before from issue 109.
