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.
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.
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!
~ I love Pinterest and would like to make one thing every week that I find on
Pinterest. Since I have lots of pins (that, until now, I've just pinned
and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins
on my boards. It can be anything, from cooking to crochet and from
sewing to paper crafts. Just small projects that don't take weeks to
Last week I told you about the Haasje look-a-like mug cozy I planned to make for Easter. Haasje, our Flemish Giant is my youngest daughter's bunny, so of course she wanted the mug cozy. I had to make it brown, though, just like Haasje.
My oldest daughter has a cat, Dolly (yes,
named after Dolly Parton, I'm a fan) and after making the bunny mug cozy above for my youngest, I remembered just in time a crochet cat I had pinned a while ago, because she really wants it. It's from Dr Seuss (pattern here).
