Hi, I’m Natasha.

Ooh, look at me welcoming you to my creative blog, where I will introduce you to all the fun, creative and crazy things I get up to.

I am a wife and a mother to my 3 children and 2 dogs, so you can imagine how chaotic it can get in our house.

“Ooh, look at me!” is an ironic name because I actually don’t like drawing attention to myself or my family, yet I really like inspiring others to be creative because I know how fulfilling it can be. The name also comes from something silly we used to say years ago and it kind of just stuck with me.

Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.

I hope this brings you creative joy

Let’s get yarning and creative!

Loopy Boot Slippers

I had crocheted a Loop Stitch square for my practice squares blanket I am working on.  It was difficult to imagine how it would look on a project so I decided to make my daughter some slippers.  These were actually her second pair.  The first pair she had already worn out before I had the chance to take a picture of them, but I used the Robin Chunky yarn from the Pink Bag I made her and used a Chevron stitch.  These Loop Boot slippers make me think of cuddly toys.  Kayleigh found these very soft and comfy.


On the soles, I worked in UK Half Treble Crochet/htr [US Half Double Crochet/hdc] and UK Treble Crochet/tr [US Double Crochet/dc].  On the leg of each boot, I worked in the loop stitch with UK Double Crochet/dc [US Single Crochet/sc] on the rows in between the loop stitch rows.

Sole Yarn

Red Heart Lisa Big (shade - Grey 00198).

1 x 200g (7.1oz/131yds/120m) balls.

Weight category: UK Super Chunky [US 6/Super Bulky/Super Chunky].

Tension/gauge: 8 stitches x 12 rows = 4in (10cm) on size 10mm/UK 000 [US N/15] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 10mm/UK 000 [US N/15].


I would give the Red Heart Lisa Big yarn a 2 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was easy to work;

- There is a reasonable choice of colours available;

- The feel of it wasn’t brilliantly soft and I found that it frayed and bobbled very quickly;

- You, obviously, do not get a lot on a ball but it does go further if you knit with it rather than crochet;

- The cost of yarn is expensive - I paid about £4.50 per 200g ball but it is now £5.20;

- Would I use this yarn again? NO.


Slipper Main Body Yarn

Drops Peak (shade - Off White 01).

3 x 50g (1.75oz/49yds/45m) balls.

Weight category: UK Super Chunky [US 6/Super Bulky/Super Chunky].

Tension/gauge: 11 stitches x 15 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 8mm/UK 0 [US L/11] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 8mm/UK 0 [US L/11].


I would give the Drops Peak yarn a 3 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was easy to work and quick to work up;

- There is only a small choice of colours available;

- The feel of it was soft and would make great toys;

- The cost of yarn is a bit expensive for what you get on a ball - I paid about £1.70 per 50g ball;

- Would I use this yarn again? YES, but only when finances allow.



I hope this brings you creative joy and inspires you to start your own yarn-tastic journey.
