Free Pattern: Crocheted Bathroom Door Storage

With a couple of impromptu weeks off from blogging, I have a couple of projects to catch you up on. I can't take full credit for the design of this crochet bathroom door storage pattern. I got the idea from here and made up the pattern from the picture.
I used a 5mm crochet hook, two balls of natural twine, a coat hanger, five buttons and a yarn needle. Basically you crochet one big rectangle for the back and then two small rectangles to make the pockets. Then stitch 'em all up. Simple.

For the back, chain 40. Then, excluding the first three chains (makes one treble crochet), treble into each of the remaining 37 chains to make 38 trebles (including the first three chains). For the second row, chain three then treble into each of the remaining 37 stitches. Repeat the second row another 28 times.

For the pockets, chain 18. Then, excluding the first three chains (makes one treble crochet), treble into each of the remaining 15 chains to make 16 trebles (including the first three chains). For the second row, chain three then treble into each of the remaining 15 stitches. Repeat the second row another 18 times.

To make up, place the pockets in position and use a yarn needle to stitch along the base of the pockets and up the sides. Stitch further vertical lines to create separate storage sections. Create a flap at the top (see above) to loop over the coat hanger. Stitch into place. Decorate with the buttons. 

I hope you enjoy making this...please feel free to add any comments/questions below.

Autumn Inspiration

Yep, so it's been almost exactly two months since I've graced you all with my presence here over on the blog. I've still been busy crafting and I have a few projects up my sleeve to share with you once I get back in the blogging groove. I've been plagued by a bit of blogger self-doubt recently and am not quite sure whether I need a bit of a rethink.

While most bloggers are going on (and on and on) about the lovely crunchy Autumn leaves etc I've had a week long holiday to lovely, sunny Mallorca. As a result, I've been more than a little late to the let's-all-get-excited-about-Autumn stuff. In an attempt to rectify the situation I've had a bit of a Pinterest session this morning and pinned a few Autumnal ideas for a rainy day at some point in the future.
