The Making Of A Mushroom- Let the Shroom-along begin!

I'm so insanely excited about this! Not only is this my first pattern release since joining the Scheepjes Bloggers Group but it's being ran as a "Mini Make Along". so it's going to be fully interactive and whole bucket load of fun!

I've popped some extra info below just to make this Shroom-Along run as magnificently as possible! Below you'll find info about stockist of the yarn, about sharing your makes on social media and of course the pattern (English and Dutch versions. Thanks to Carmen Jorissen for the Dutch translation)
I do hope you enjoy!!!!

Purchasing your yarn for the Shroom-Along:

Within the pattern you will find a complete list of the tools, yarn and hook that are required for the make along. That being said, the pattern is written in a way that is easily adaptable to the size of tin you are using, as well as the yarn you may decide to use.

The great thing about Scheepjes is the shades of yarn run across the yarn ranges. I used Scheepjes Cahlista for my shroom, but you could definitely make the pattern in another weight of yarn using the same colours (Catona maybe?). You could even mix the colours up a little, it's your shroom after all!

Just for a little help though, I've popped a list of stores below, inking directly to the page with the colours of Cahlista that I used. You will also notice that some stores are doing a colour pack, so you can purchase all of the necessary colours in one easy click.

Alternatively, you can also find a list of Scheepjes stockists here.

The Making Of A Mushroom- Ta-dah

Hello Lovelies!
I do hope you're all having a smashing weekend?
As you know over the past weeks I've been going mushroom mad!! Working this cute little toadstool tin caddy and preparing a pattern for you guys.


It's been a really fun process working on this tin caddy, upcycling a container and putting it back into full use. Boy does it look cute on my craft room table!


It was also my first time working with Scheepjes Cahlista, what a joy that's been! Not only does the yarn work up really nice, it comes in soooooo many shades that options are endsless.


Here's my toadstool tin caddy in all of its glory! Isn't it just the cutest, nestled in amongst my craft-room and adding a splurge of fairytale magic to the room.


I had a play with adding some flowers to the toadstool and have included the flowers within the written pattern.
Honestly though, I like the toadstool without the flowers. I like its clean simple shapes and colours, the flowers don't float my boat and make it look a little too busy. Maybe I added a few too many lol?!


So the pattern is all written and I'm really proud of it. It's a simple one, but I've worked hard at making it nice and clear. I've added pictures and helping hints, made it available in both English and Dutch and even had a go at designing my own graphic for the front cover.


The English and Dutch patterns will go live on my Pattern Page in the morning and I'll pop a little post up on the blog tomorrow, as Scheepjes and I officially start our Shroom-along! I'm so looking forward to this mini make along and hope you guys are also.



More info about supplies can be found within my last post, plus I'll add a little post tomorrow with a reminder of all of the info as we get this "mini MAL" rolling!







The making of a mushroom- A Shroom-along!

Hello lovelies!
How are you all doing?

I've got some super exciting news.....YIIIIIIPEEEEE!
I'm joining forces with my lovely friends over at Scheepjes and we're running a "mini make along", rather aptly named a "SHROOM-ALONG" (Mushroom make along.)
We're going to kick of our SHROOM-ALONG on Monday 4th June and I can not wait!
Not only is this a chance to make this rather fun toadstool tin caddy, which might I add, is a quick and mega cute project, that doubles up as practical storage for all of your crafting bits'n bobs. It's also a chance to get a little interactive and connect with other hookers whilst working through this mini make together.

I've not done this before so am really looking forward to getting a little more interactive with my crocheting.
The mini make along will take place over the course of 2 weeks and will start on Monday, so if you want to play along you have a moment to sort out supplies:

What bits'n bobs am I going to need?

  • TIN: You’ll need a cylinder container/ tin with a lid. Mine was approximately 15cm tall and had a diameter of 8.5 cm. This projects works best if the lid sits plush to the main body of the cylinder (no overhang from the lid).
  • Polystyrene Hemisphere: I used a 15cm in diameter polystyrene half sphere as a base for my toadstool cap, these can be found easily online or at most craft stores.
  • Scissors
  • darning needle
  • stitch marker
  • craft knife
  • hot glue gun
  • ruler
  • compass
  • card board (approximately 2mm thick)
  • Small amount of toy stuffing
  • craft glue


what yarn am I going to Need?

  • 1-2 X Scheepjes Cahlista- English Tea, 404
  • 1 X Scheepjes Cahlista- Root Beer, 157
  • 1 X Scheepjes Cahlista- Hot Red, 115
  • 1 X Scheepjes Cahlista- Apple Green, 389
  • 1 X Scheepjes Cahlista- Snow White, 106
