My Facebook Page

Apologies for the large paragraph below, this has come directly from my Facebook page and it’s not something I can remove. If you look below this you will then see my Facebook Page Posts, so feel free to skip the first part to see these. This is via a special application which is why I have little control but I know it will be a useful feature for some of my viewers.

Please note it will only show the first few posts from my Facebook Page, so to see more please click the title below this saying “Bedcrafter” and it will take you to Facebook, it is public viewable so you don’t need to have an account.


I have started this page so I can share what I create with my friends and family, and anyone else who is interested. I love to craft and love all types of crafting, although sadly due to illness I am restricted with what I can do. I love to crochet and I find this one of the more manageable crafts for me. When my health allows I love card making and paper crafts ๐Ÿ™‚ although I do find this takes a larger toll on my body. The inspiration behind the name bedcrafter, is because I have to craft from my bed due to being severely long term ill. I have been bed bound for many years now and the only way to craft is in bed. This is why I choose the name bedcrafter, as this is what I am. I hope to share all the things I make with you but also tips and tricks I have found a long the way. I have found several things that have been helpful when crafting from my bed, I'd like to be able to share this with others in the hope that this might help them if they are in the same boat. This page, my website and my other social networking sites are all a way of me sharing my crafting with you and other craft related things I'd like to share with you. I hope you enjoy what I share and maybe you even pick up on a few tips you didn't know before! Please bare in mind that I am very ill so I might not always be as active as I would like to be. I am hoping with the wonders of technology that I will be able to stay fairly active despite not being very well but know that if there is a period of quietness its just because I am struggling. Thank you!

As promised another update now the spikes have been sewn on โ˜บ. Doesn't he look great?

These are just quickly taken photos and I'll get some much better ones tomorrow, I just wanted to quickly update you tonight now I was finished. Well almost ๐Ÿ˜!

Tomorrow I'll be working on some pink hair for him and then he'll be truly complete, the hair is an add on of my own so he looks similar to the Original Pete's Dragon which is what I was aiming for (colours matched as closely as possible within yarn brand).

Pattern is called Yoki the Dragon by @diyfluffies and yarn is @threebearsyarn Affection 100% Cotton, aran weight. #crochet #crochetwip #crochetdragon #amigurumi #amigurumidragon #diyfluffies #threebearsyarn #cotton #cottonyarn #veganyarn #craftastherapy #crochetersofig #crochetersofinstagram

Today was Bambi on ice the sequel. The first couple of kilometres it was just a sheet of ice. I didn't fall and i didn't fracture anything so that's a win in my book. I then managed to head towards town where finally the roads pavement where clear. I stopped by the Cathedral for buddy the elf's photo session. 5k in total but half of it more like ice skating. #elfandsafetyproject2017 #runthewinterstreak #runner #islandrunning #islandrunner #adventurerunner #trailrunning #veganrunner #running #runnersofinstagram #runnersofig #traildog #traildogmyka #runningwithdogs #labrador #labradorretriever #blacklab #dogsofinstagram #juliusk9 #juliusk9idc #photoadaychallenge #bedcrafter #veganyarn #threebearsyarn #heartandsewuk #amigurumielf #crochetelf #orkney #orkneyislands

Sorry my update is a little later than planned but look ๐Ÿ˜ the Dragon is nearly finished!!!

I am just about to see the spikes in place โ˜บ and then technically the pattern written by @diyfluffies is finished. I'll be adding one more feature before he is finished for me, well for the lady I am making him for. For those that remember my previous posts I am making this Dragon to look like the Original Pete's Dragon, so for that he needs pink hair too.

I'll be sure to share more photos once I have sewn the spikes in place and then of course when I have added his hair. Won't belong now till he heads off to his new home โ˜บ he has taken much longer than planned due to my bad health but I hope he'll be loved and enjoyed!

*Yarn is from @threebearsyarn and I've been using Affection 100% Cotton in aran weight. I've already mentioned the pattern designer further up above if you want to know that too. #crochet #crochetwip #crochetdragon #amigurumi #amigurumidragon #diyfluffies #threebearsyarn #cotton #cottonyarn #veganyarn #craftastherapy #crochetersofig #crochetersofinstagram

Now onto the last of the baby hat designs I made โ˜บ well the last ones I have to share as I can't remember what order I made them in!

This pattern is called Arctic Flurry Hat by Kerry Jayne Designs and I made size 0-3 months in two different colours. I think they look great, what do you think? It was my first time making this pattern and I really enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜ in fact I have an adult one in mind I hope to make this winter.

I made these hats using Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky in Seafoam Blue and Candyfloss Pink along with James C. Brett Flutterby yarn. If you'd like more details here are links to my Ravelry Projects; Seafoam Blue and Candyfloss Pink ๐Ÿ’œ.

I loved making these baby hats using patterns by Kerry Jayne Designs. If you've not tried them already I can highly recommend them!

Time for me to say good bye now and I hope you've enjoyed these posts. I'll be back in the next few days with an update on the Dragon.

Sorry I forgot to finish sharing the baby hats with you yesterday, I ended up forgetting I hadn't done them all yet. Oops ๐Ÿ˜Š so I'm back this evening to show you the last two hat designs starting with this one.

These hats are the Eskimo Kisses Hat by Kerry Jayne Designs ๐Ÿ’œ and you might even recognise the design as it was a pattern I tested for Kerry a few weeks back โ˜บ. I loved making the baby hat versions as they are just so cute, don't you think?

So I made these hats in size 0-3 months using Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky in Candyfloss Pink and Seafoam Blue along with James C. Brett Flutterby yarn. They are so soft and snuggly and are lovely hats no matter the age (even I want one!).

If you'd like to see more on these hats here are my project links on Ravelry; Seafoam Blue and Candyfloss Pink โ˜บ.

I'll be back later to share the next hat pattern which is also the last. I hope you've enjoyed seeing them, I think these patterns are super cute in the baby sizes โค.
