Crochet – connecting people

Tapestry crochet was long on the list of my crochet projects. I have never tried it before, but I was certainly attracted by the mathematics behind it, since most things I have seen were quite geometrical šŸ™‚ For years one of my friends wanted to have a bag crocheted by me. I think by now…

Color block crochet tote

Living in Belgium, you can never know how much real summer you would actually have šŸ™‚ When you crochet something summery, you really want to finish it as early as possible, so that you manage to use it. Lucky us, we are having quite a lot of sun these days and the forecast still looks…

Little crochet purse & my first tutorial

I made this little purse for a lovely friend, a very strong and wise woman for her birthday. I know sheĀ has been waiting for itĀ for a long time šŸ™‚ This is also my first attempt to write down how I made it. I really hope it is clear and easy to follow. I would appreciate…

Twice cozy hot water bottles

It seems to me that crocheting hot water bottle coats might be a solution to long and rainy nights. First, you get very cozy finding the perfect wool, picking a pattern and finally crocheting the coat. Then, you get cozy every time again and again when they are softly keeping you warm. These two have…

Less is more zpagetti bag

SometimesĀ you don’t need a very elaborated pattern to crochet something cute. It was a present for a friend, and, yes, I’ve seen her wearing it šŸ˜€ This bag is crocheted around only with the single crochet stitch.

Because a girl can’t have enough of them…

Bags, of course! This one is made of one my favorite yarns zpagetti, the same one I used for my rug. I guess one of the reasons is that it comes in a million of great colors and it works really really fast šŸ™‚ It probably took me about an hour to crochet this bag….

Yes, holidays are here!

  What I love most about holidays is the endless amount of surprises, presents, lights and smiles! To make this even more special, I believe everyone should make at least one present or decoration or sweets – forget the stores. When I was a child, paper was my favorite material: for snowflakes, toys, garlands. This…

Crochet lace for autumn

Last days of November… The winter temperatures are already here. The only thing reminding it is not yet winter are the leaves on the trees and the lacy scarves that one can still wear. Here is one I made for this autumn, surprisingly in time! So I managed to wear it šŸ™‚ It is a…

Just a crochet rug

  I’ve been dreaming of making a new rug for months. Crochet with such thick yarns is both hard and satisfying. My fingers hurt a bit, but then it worked soooo fast. In no time you can crochet something quite big! šŸ™‚ I was inspired by many crocheters online who experiment with chunky/jumbo/mega crochet. Taking…
