Ok lovelies !!!! guess what...................................
My partner in the detective round just recieved my parcel so I can show you all what ive been making !!!!!!
The craft box I shall pop in a new topic too as Im quite proud of it !!
So my partner is a lovely lady who has a son with autism and as I work with adults and children on the autistic spectrum I just knew I was going to have fun with textures and weights and colour.
So first off for her lovely son I made a book holder that he can hang on the back of the door (you may see a familiar thread with all the bits for him as they are sea related, as he is rather into fish at the moment ! )
In the bottom treasure chest pocket I hid a big shiny golden charm..
But in all the other pockets I hid this lot
SOme amiguri knitted octupi and sea horse
and some bean weighted flying fish with long ribbon tails - just throw them and watch them fly !
I also made him a fish which, was knitted then felted in the machine. I stuffed full of old socks (dont worry I washed them) which made it really heavy as kids with autism love weighted toys. I have to say I will be making another of these as my littlest sobbed when I packed it up !
So then, onto the lovely mum. She had written that she would like a stand alone case in which to store her knitting needles and crochet hooks. Im also well aware that the autistic logo is puzzle pieces and so I created this cuboid collapsable craft box in which she can store absolutely everything !!! It makes for a quick tidy away (which is essential when you have sneaky little people fingers in your life.)
Feedback always appreciated
