The Pea Green Boat

Hello and Welcome to the Pea Green Boat

I created this blog to showcase my creative work. I love to make things whether it be through drawing and painting, baking, sewing, crochet and a number of other ways. I do alot of crochet at the moment.

I started the Pea Green Boat in October 2013, I have attended lots of craft fairs and sold through my facebook page. To make it easier to purchase the items I make I have now set up my etsy shop (link bellow)

I am a self-confessed massive nerd. So be prepared for creative geekery and I also love animals, if that’s your thing you’re in the right place.

Here are some links to my other pages:

Always Building…

YAY!

I love Lego, I’ve been making awesome custom minifigure jewellery for my etsy shop for a few months, here’s a small selection for what you can find on the shop! I have been looking for something I can sell during the summer months for a while. So when people stop wanting scarves, hats and gloves I still have something to offer!

As with most things I create it’s really hard not to just keep these all for myself. I am not the selfish type, but they are all just so cute!!!

 

As always, if you would like to purchase any of these you can find them on Etsy. Keyrings and Necklaces are £8 + Postage and earrings are £12 + Postage. You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. I post most frequently on Twitter and Instagram at the moment, so they are probably the best place to go for updates!!

Crochet Baubles for Geeks!

Hi Guys and Girls,

I’m sorry for the lack of content recently! I have still been busy crafting, but I have been a little slack on the blog front!

Over the last week I have been busy making Christmas Decorations for The Pea Green Boat Shop! I am still planning to make a few more sets if I get chance so if you would like to see what I am up to you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I’m really excited to see The Force Awakens! So naturally the first bauble set I made were these Star Wars inspired ones.

I then made Star Trek TOS Uniform baubles, Then Star Trek TNG, Pokemon and finally Porwepuff Girls (just for randomness)

 

Thanks for reading!!

If I don’t post before have an awesome Christmas!

 

Best Wishes,

Amy,

Epic Blanket Progress!

I’ve been quite busy…

over the last few weeks crocheting my little heart out making all these wonderful Star Wars Squares. If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you probably knew that already!

Some of you my have seen my previous blog post with a picture of the design for half of the Epic blanket. I’ll be honest, I haven’t actually finished designing the squares yet. I think I have 15 or so still to design and 28 pieces to crochet! A little bit of me feels like I’m crazy for taking on such a huge project, it is definitely a labour of love!

I am undecided whether to keep or sell the completed piece. A lot of people have been asking whether I will be selling it on completion or not. The intention was always to keep it for myself but for the right price I would sell it.

I am hoping to make a crochet pattern for this at some point too. So stay tuned for that! Although there is a lot to work through so I may break it down into smaller sections for the patterns.

I’m really loving making this blanket and I can’t wait to share more with you soon.

Best Wishes,

Amy,

New to the shop this week!

When I was complaining about the lack of colour in my yarn collection at the moment my friend Sara suggested that I used up some of my grey yarn on a Totoro project.

I already have an idea for a matching hat to go with these gloves so keep an eye out for that too!

I really like the felt features on this project. I think I will use more felt on my creations in the future.

If you would like to buy these gloves or anything else you may have seen on my blog please visit my Etsy Shop. You can also find me on Facebook, twitter and instagram for more updates.

Best wishes,

Amy

My Stash is running low!!

I’m sure many of you crochet addicts out there will understand that awful feeling when you are about to run out of yarn.

I’ve really been trying to use up what I have recently. I haven’t bought any new yarn in at least 3 months! Over the last week I’ve been complaining that my stash is running low on vital colours and soon I will be left with only grey and cream (so boring I just can’t even think about that right now) I’m really struggling today and I could do with some support, please tell me what I can make out of all the grey and cream yarn that I have…

I ran out of black an yellow today and all I want to make are little bumblebees.

Please send help… and supplies

I’m a little bit in love with this one I have to say. I tend to like most of the things I make but occasionally I really have to stop myself from keeping stuff just for me!

I first thought of making this when I was designing the wolverine hat. After making that the other day I decided I had to get on with this design too. It was a little dark a grey today so the photos aren’t the best. The colour is most accurate in the top picture.

Hopefully I’ll get some better photos for this and the Wolverine hat soon, I’ll update them on the shop when I do.

As usual you can find this hat in my Etsy Shop

If you would like more regular updates you can find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Best Wishes,

Amy
