Crochet box

I finally found the final ingredient for my crochet box and I can present it in all its glory 🙂

There’s a match box in it to get an idea of its size. I’m using it to keep my lipsticks and small cosmetics in one place.

Crochet bag pics!

I finally managed to take some pictures of my bag 🙂

The side and base is quite wide, about 4 inches and I’m thinking about making a fabric interior so pencils don’t start dropping out of it when I’m on the street 🙂

Busy busy bee

I’ve been busy these days crocheting. (i also sewed for the first time, but I haven’t photographed my creations yet).

My first project is a bag, which has the sides completed:

and now I’m working on the bottom, sides and strap (which will be one long crocheted band). After that’s done, I’ll take care of the hanging bits of yarn, put these together and look for a fabric to sew as an interior for this.

And to give you an idea of what I’ll be doing next, or rather what I’ll be using, here’s a picture I took while I put my supplies in order:

Diy: Scarf Hanger

A few days ago I tried to make a scarf of several simple crocheted loops, but it didn’t work very well. I undid the knots and kept the chains, thinking I might have a use for them at some point.

Then my mother showed me this scarf hanger she saw at Ikea

and I had an idea. I closed all but one of the chains, getting four loops and then put them through the fifth chain. Each loop served as one scarf hanger, and the fifth one was used to hang the whole thing.

Here are some pictures to make up for my poor explaining skills (I apologize for the lightning, my room doesn’t have good natural light and it was too late to go outside and take the photos).

These are the loops

I had three winter scarfs there, which are quite heavy, to see if it would hold, and it did. Each loop was made of ch-s, and you can adapt the size to the type of scarfs you want to use. This is a close-up of mine:

This took me about 20 minutes to make, and the biggest problem was that the yarn I used was one of those pre-woven yarns and my crochet got stuck. I think with the proper yarn, it can be done in 5 minutes 🙂

Hope this was useful. if you have any suggestions, comments or complaints, I’d love to hear them 🙂

New project

I’m in love. I was browsing the crafting blogs to find interesting things to add to my increasing to-do list when I discovered something brilliant (and simple enough that I might actually do it). It’s the woven blanket in this post by Sarah London and as soon as I decide on some colors, I’ll give it a try.

Another interesting thing I saw in her blog was the Hawaiian model which I might try at some point.

So… I’m off to raid my supplies boxes. Will return with pictures soon 🙂
