Anjali followed our recent Harry Potter inspired wand tutorial to create these and we think they look brilliant sitting on her bookshelf! She talked about the project over on her blog From L&P To English Tea so head on over if you want to find out more! - @anjali_kay

Hayley sent us photos of these adorable elephants she created using this free pattern from All About Ami. Each one took around 4 hours to make using 50g of DK wool and almost 4000 stitches! You can find out more about them over on her blog Water Painted Dreams! - @whathayleydid

We also received this photo of a cosy knitted shawl from one of our lovely Twitter followers Vicki, the lady behind Kitschimania. You can find this design and more over in her Etsy store! - @kitschimania

After posting the DIY Deathly Hallows Tshirt Inspired By Harry Potter, we received a tweet from Lisa of White Tree Fabrics who excitedly told us that she couldn't wait to give the DIY a try. A few days later, we received this photo of The Avengers tshirt she made for her husband - we love it! - @whitetreefabric

Thank you to Anjali, Hayley, Vicki & Lisa for sharing these awesome makes! If you have a crafty project you want to share with the Eight & Sixteen community we would love to hear from you. Just drop us an email or tweet to be included in a future post!
