Labyrinth Crochet Patterns

The Worm, from the movie Labyrinth.

Labyrinth is one of my favourite films, and you will often hear my sister and I quoting random lines, or acting out a scene in the middle of a shop for no reason. I’ve been meaning to curate some crochet Labyrinth critters for a while now, so this is a sort of ‘make queue’ for me, and a bit of nostalgic reading for you.

Game of Thrones Handmade Selection

Game of Thrones season 5 starts in the UK in less than two weeks and to celebrate (and to fill some of that that God-awful time in between now and then), I’ve curated a handmade GoT gallery of must-haves.

I will need to bleach my hair to lift it enough to get a vibrant colour, then I’ll be using semi-permanent vegetable-based dyes to colour it.

So this is my hair at the start (with bonded extensions):
