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
