Crafty Presents And Photo Prop Fun For Jen's Birthday

Last week was the birthday of my awesome friend Jen from's vegan, I always make her a little something to go with her pressie, this time I made her some coasters in the shape of apples and pears.

I saw the pattern for the apple coaster in Simply Crochet magazine and thought straight away it was very Jen. I got creative for the pear and made up a version myself, I'm not very good at making flat items so it was quite a challenge for something that looks so simple.
The pears are a little wonky but I think that gives them character.

We went out into town on Saturday evening to celebrate her birthday, Jen had mentioned she wanted to have a themed night where we all bring props but I think somewhere down the line we forgot and nothing happened.
Crafty me kicked in on Saturday at 4pm and I decided to make everybody some photo booth props. Amusing shenanigans ensued.
I had some A4 sheets of foam left over from mustache photo props Mr. Pea and I made for my birthday last year and a pack of 75 bamboo skewers Jen picked me up from Sainsburys for 10p (10p!!)

Me and Jen having fun with the photo props

I made 4 pairs of lips, 3 mustaches and 2 bow ties. Foam is really good for making up photo props, it's easy to cut up and doesn't flop around like felt or bend and tear like paper/card.
