Here at Wool Warehouse, we are always thinking of exciting things to make with the yarns and fabrics that we see every day in the warehouse! We love to be surrounded by so many beautiful products and when we're not sending out orders to you lovely customers, we are crafting away at home! Here are a few of our makes that will give you a little insight into our crafty world!

Mr Squishy

Gemma's amazing Mr Squishy was made using Bernat Blanket in shades Go Go Green and Vintage White. Gemma made this soft, giant octopus for her husband. Since being made, Mr Squishy has played several board games, been crowned Emperor Squishy and now sits in the window overlooking his empire.

Christmas Shirt

This festive shirt was made by the extremely talented Margaret! She is known as a fabric goddess here at Wool Warehouse, and is always making something! She made this eccentric shirt to match the personality of our 'class clown' Paul and he wore it to our Christmas get together. Amongst the many quilts, dresses, babygrows etc that Margaret has made, is this changing mat (made from Moda Corner of 5th and Fun Collection), which  is just gorgeous!

Dinosaur Quilt and Soft Toy

Ellie is definitely known as the Jack of All Trades, as she can pretty much master every different type of craft.
