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!!!
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.
there’s still a long list of other things to make: a piñata, 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!
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
For who wants a pattern of the triangle grannies: I used the same pattern that I used for this bunting (with tutorial)!
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!
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
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.
