Anne Bonny – Pirate Queen of Nassau

I’m sorry i’ve been absent! I have finished university and am starting to adjust to the real world of jobs and adulthood. It’s hard when you have no idea what you want to do, but I won’t go into that!

Last year I became a HUGE fan of Black Sails and the character Anne Bonny. I love her strength and independence, her love for Jack and Max, her fighting skills and her way with words 😉

So it was inevitable that I would crochet my favourite character. It took a few tries as i’m not used to jackets, should I make them removable or are they attached to the body? I finally created something i’m really proud of and I hope you like it too.

It’s currently on my store CrochetWithPride.etsy.com , and I can’t wait to add the rest of the Black Sails characters!

LGBT Keyring – Ready for Pride!

Today I booked my train tickets for Brighton Pride! I’m really excited, but as I’m not flamboyant or brave enough to dress bold or colourful, I thought I’d settle for something smaller.

I used a smaller hook than normal and played around a little with the pattern. Miss Pride could act as a keyring, but I like her as a handbag accessory. 

  
Today I’ve ordered some keychains so I will soon be able to make good quality keyrings. At the moment I’ve used this chain from a handbag, so future creations will have better quality ones. 

The wool is so soft and light, I love it! The colours are amazing too, I finished this rather late and so took a photo as soon as I could. In the light she is so much more impressive! 

Will attach this to my handbag tomorrow and see how it looks! It’s small, but I hope it gets noticed at Pride. She’s too cute not to!
