Pretty Little Things – Monthly Mini-Craft Publication

Have you seen the latest monthly publication from Scheepjes?

It’s called Pretty Little Things, or Klein Maar Fijn in Dutch, and it’s released every month with three designs which are accessible to everyone, with a crochet, knit and sewing pattern in each one.

The Most recent is called Beach and I have a pattern to share!

My design is called Toes in the Sandals, and they’re super cute, a pair of stylish sandals that you can wear at the beach or out and about because they’re so comfy!

The sandals are made using a single ball each of Scheepjes Maxi Sweet Treat, in two (or just one if you prefer) of your favourite colours. You’ll also need a pair of foam soles, which are easy to come by, I’ll share the stockist links below.

I’ve also used a fun crochet technique which prevents the straps from stretching out, which in shoes, unlike your most comfy jeans, is not what you want, right?

There are two other designs featured in the publication, one is a knit beach cover-up (or stylish top!) called Blue Skies Top, using Cotton 8 from Pat Strong:

The third design is the lovely Below The Reef Bag from Ingrid Peters, a colourful beginner-friendly sewing project for crafters looking to create a fun bag to for all summer essentials.

It also has undersea embroidery which is so much fun to do!

Get the Yarn!

Ok, so the soles can be picked up in a few different places.

If you’re in the Netherlands, go to de Brei Boerderij and choose your favourite colour.

Elsewhere, your best bet is Amazon.

To get the publication and the yarn, visit any of your favourite Scheepjes stockists, almost everyone stocks it because it’s such a fantastic yarn. I use it for embroidery as well as crochet, I love it!

Also, in NL, check out Caro’s Atelier* – my local yarn store.
For the rest of the world, Wool Warehouse* is shipping everywhere again, so they can get it to you.

You can also get a digital copy of the pattern via Ravelry.

In this lovely Dutch weather, it’s the perfect time to be getting your beach on, enjoy!
