Good evening and welcome to our #WeekendWrapUp. With no less than 15 of our makers adding to their shops this week, it’s another cracker!

So settle in, make a brew, grab a biscuit or two, and check our picks from this week’s additions.

I’m sure that you’re all aware that we love a handmade baby blanket here at Made By Mums, and this week we have two beautiful new creations to show to you.

If looking at all the lovely crocheted items has inspired you to pick up a hook yourself, this week maker The Crochet By Molina has added a crochet kit for making some coasters. 4 small balls of yarn, a crochet hook, and instructions are all included in the price of £13.50 (and UK postage). Instructions will be emailed to you directly once you place an order.

And they aren’t just for the knitters and crocheters out there, these organisers can be used to keep track of threads for cross stitches, embroidery, tapestry wools, and ribbons. At the moment she is just catching up on some admin, but she’ll be opening back up for orders shortly – so keep an eye on her shop!
