Chain of Letters

Image
A new baby girl is born in my circle of friends and as said before I don’t feel like making a Play Mat once again, so I made this chain of letters:  It’s made of felt, polymer clay and a little bell. www.betweennapsontheporch.net ~*~ This week my Birthday Crown is featured by The Trendy Treehouse and on Facebook by I Gotta Create !  Thanks, Tara and Christina!

40's Crochet Pattern

Image
A couple of weeks ago I started to crochet a top of a 40’s pattern . It was quite a lot of work (mostly because I like short projects, that are finished in two or three days instead of weeks), but it’s finished!!! Front (with Black Cat Brooch ) Back www.betweennapsontheporch.net

Ladies Swing Trousers by Heyday Vintage Style WANTED Great trousers!

Poodle!

Image
Yesterday I found an adorable poodle pattern by Cassie Stephens to stitch on clothes or on whatever you like. You can find it here, at Feeling Stitchy . I find the look of styled poodles hilarious, don’t you? Dogs from outer space! I embroidered this poodle on a circle of felt and applied it to a simple black long sleeve for my daugther. www.betweennapsontheporch.net ~*~ This week my Crochet Bag is featured by Snips and Spice , My Merry Messy Life and Creative Itch . Thanks, Malory, Sara and Macy! I Got to Create featured the bag on Facebook. Thanks, Christina!      

Birthday Crown

Image
And here are two other projects I can check off from the long list of things to make for the birthday party: The Birthday Crown my daughter wants, because her little sister got a crown too for her birthday. A Birthday Shirt. The shirt is from the shop, the stars and 5 I cut out of iron-on glitters and ironed on the shirt. ~*~ This week my Lunch Bag is featured by Crafty Confessions ! Thanks, Macy! www.betweennapsontheporch.net

Invitations

Image
Today the invitations for the soon-to-celebrate birthday went their way, so after the crochet vanes   and the bunting   I closed another project involving the party: But there’s still a long list of other things to make: a piƱata, a birthday crown like the one I made for my other daughter, the little presents that go along with the treats at school, a quoits game (although I maybe skip this one J ), cakes, cupcakes and other sweets. Lots of things to do indeed! www.betweennapsontheporch.net

Crochet Bag

Image
After making this little lunch bag for me, my oldest daughter wanted a bag of her own of course. I had some pink polkadot left over after making the lunch bag and with some yarn, a crochet hook and a sewing machine I created this little bag for her: Bag closed with drawstring Bag open Bottom For who wants a pattern of the triangle grannies: I used the same pattern that I used for this bunting (with tutorial)! www.betweennapsontheporch.net

Black Pull Over by Bettie Page Clothing WANTED Lovely Pull Over!

Cherries and Strawberries

Image
I made myself a dress again. The ones who read my blog on a regular basis know by now I’m a gingham lover. The pink gingham I used for this dress is even better, because it has cherries and strawberries on it! Love this fabric! www.betweennapsontheporch.net ~*~ And my Caged Butterflies are featured by In the Old Road . Thank you, Shasta!

Black Cat Brooch

Image
For two weeks now I’m working on a crochet top of an old vintage pattern and I’m still not much further than the front. Takes a lot more time than I thought! But I love the result, so I think I’m gonna finish this one, no matter how long it takes. To break the mint color of the top a little bit, I hope to win a beautiful black dragonfly brooch in a giveaway by ChronicallyVintage , but in case I don’t win anything (bigger chance J ) I made a brooch myself in advance: Shaped after my grumpy but nonetheless endlessly beloved black cat Sjakie, who isn’t among the living anymore for a while now, but still isn’t forgotten. You can see the mint colored top in the background. A picture of the total top follows after it's finished.  ~*~ And…. m y Fingerless Lace Gloves are featured again!  This time by Blissful Bucketlist !  Thanks, Sarah! www.betweennapsontheporch.net
