My other half (we're now engaged actually!) is starting up his own clothing company for kids.  It's all woodland/outdoors based so I made him a little crochet present..... AN AXE!  Everyone needs a crochet axe right?

Trying to make it in secret was so hard!  But it's now hung on the wall pride of place.
Finding something the right width to go inside was a bit of a problem, till I realised I was being silly and the answer was so obvious.  I simply got the tube that's left over from wrapping paper and cut it to the right length (two of them that length).  Then I cut down one side so I could change the width.  I put one inside the other for extra strength and hey presto!

The boys then spent the afternoon chopping down trees..........
