It's been raining for about, well, almost all summer now, so since it looks like fall around here, I thought I could just as well take out my old boots. To give them a little make over, I made some boot belts.
It's almost King's Day, the day where the citizens of The Netherlands celebrate their majesty's birthday. The big day is next friday and because the king's surname is Van Oranje, which means From Orange, basically everything you can think of will be orange. I myself crocheted an orange little crown that fits around my Flemish Giant's ear. So if he wasn't my king bunny before, than now he is.
Look at him, so handsome. Of course you also can attach the little crown to a hair pin and wear it on your head.
I altered the pattern a little bit, but you can find the original pattern here!
One of the things that was on the to do list a couple of weeks ago for my other blog, was inviting one of my friends over for coffee and lunch by sending her some flower seeds in an envelope as an invitation.
I saw this idea here, but thought it would be nicer and more personal to not just print out an envelope template, but draw flowers on the envelope myself. I bought some seed packs, cut and folded the envelope and drew the flowers that are supposed to come out of the seeds on it.
One of my best and oldest (oldest in how long we are friends, not oldest in age) almost has her birthday. She loves cats, and I mean LOVES cats, and is a sort of shelter for all neighborhood stray cats. It began with one and now she has six that are permanent residents in her house, besides the cats that just walk by to get food and then stroll further to the next house.
So what other mochila could I make for her than one with cats?
And for the attentive reader: I've made this bag before, indeed. For my daughter's birthday, two years ago, I made the same Cat Mochila, just other colors.
