In a local craftstore in my
neighborhood I saw this colored wire a while ago and since I'm sort of a
magpie when it comes to shiny things, I've asked myself what I could
make from it ever since. Until I saw those wired quotes people buy to
hang on their walls. Nice for postcards, too, I thought. And here they
We are renovating our house and while I was looking for ideas for our kitchen, I came along this fun idea for X-mas decorations: snow flakes made of hama beads! Since my daughter has boxes full of those beads that I find everywhere, I finally found a way to eliminate them. Hooray and YAY! First we made the Hama X-mas Tree, but since I mentioned Hama Snowflakes in that post, there were some requests to show the flakes, too. So here you are:
A couple of weeks ago I crocheted a pillow cover saying the words Sweet Home Sweet, as you may have seen. I found the idea at The Purl Bee and liked the idea of cross stitching on something that's crocheted so much, that I tried another pillow. I used the same stitch (it's made of only single crochets) to create the same netting like pattern to cross stitch on and after that searched for a Rose Pattern. This how it turned out. Pretty nice, I think!
In the summer vacation of 2016 I made my first mochila. That first one was just to practice and now that we're a year further, I think my mochila making skills are improved a little bit. In this year some people asked me to make a bag for them, too. The best assignment was the one from a boots and bags shop owner, who asked me to make two bags for her, in exchange for a couple of boots at choice. No cheap boots to find in her shop, so I considered it a great deal when she let me choose some beautiful Tony Lama boots. I still love them.
This month I made another mochila. I love the colors of these boots, so I chose the same colors for the bag.
