Crochet Heart Dress

Tomorrow my youngest daughter has a Spring Party at Kindergarten. As always they asked the mums (and dads, but for some reason dads never react to such lists) to cook, bake or otherwise make things to eat. You could fill in your name and I was the first to react. Cake Pops Ice Cones I would make. 


And now, the night before, as always I ask myself “Why?! Why did you enlist?”. Despite taking time enough for preparation (I started yesterday with baking the cake for the pops, for example), every time I end up with lack of time. The cake pops themselves where finished on time, but for some reason the candy melts didn’t melt properly, so I couldn’t dip in the pops and I had to smear the candy melts with a knife all over the pops myself. Gives not the best result, I can tell you that. And so I’m not very cheerful right now, poor husband of mine. If you have tips on how to make candy melts more fluid, please tell me!!

This is the result:

Because of the lacking yarn in the yarn shop I worked on three more sewing projects. One I finished yesterday. It’s another dress for my four year old. I combined velvet with crochet. An experiment, but I think it works out quite well. Result:


For who wants to know: the other sewing projects are a dress for me and a play mat (again).

And here’s one of the prettiest flowers in the world, I think: the lily. Especially the orange ones!

    1. Yes, the taste was delicious. They just didn't look so great. It's a good thing kids aren't that critical :-)!

  5. The pops turned out just charming! I wish our GRANDS were allowed to bring home-made goodies to school parties. I miss those days of decorating cupcakes and writing names on big cookies.

    1. Thank you! Just crochet a heart, sew the dress, attach the heart to the dress and remove the fabric behind the heart, so you can see some belly. That's it :-)! Liz
