Granny Seats...

I made these two seats (with some manly help)
for two very special people in town 
that have helped me out a huge amount this year...

Granny Seat...

They love recycling and helping the environment 
 so these were ideal for Christmas gifts...

Granny Seats...

The tops were crocheted in cotton and a bamboo-wool blend...
I really wish I had made one for home...
they are just too cute...


Inspiration:
Lots of old painted bits of timber from the bathroom renovation...
A stash of cotton and bamboo-wool just waiting for a project...
and pictures of the lovely amazing work of Ingrid from
who's stools I have admired for so long...

These sweet Granny seats are 
a "one off" present for two special ladies...
Sorry there are no orders on these...

They are beautiful. The crochet is just gorgeous and a perfect contrast to the recycled wood.
