Colorful Crochet purse- final project

So this is it, with no further ado, it finally came to an end:

  • loved its corners, they gave a better shape to it and a better bottom too!
  • at the bottom I did a sort of a seam with the pink row!
  • There is a lining, with a nice couple of pockets,
  • I sewed some buttoms she herself picked to make it even funnier,
  • reinforced the handles,
  • used  some nice cetim ribbon,
  • nice little chiffon flowers in each corner of my granny square.
  • ziper, because every woman -even the 8 year-olds, needs to hide what’s inside their purse…

It was fun and lively to make I had a great time, again for those of you who did know I totally loved a purse form the blog Magic with hooks and needles I loved it she is so super talented,there are a few changes to her project but the idea is all hers.

Crochet Colourful Purse

Hi everybody,

As I was once again browsing some seriously beautiful crochet, and crafts sites I came across this one and the site is Magic with hook and needles adorable!

I showed my daughter, because now she is 8 and of course needs a larger purse whenever she is on a spree with her daddy.
I absolutely loved this one though she asked me to make some changes, she is right not only because she is not a grown up but most importantly I like to give things my personal touch. So I followed the multi color idea, the ‘patchwork’ kind of style, I adored the colours she initially used so I stuck to them and changed some little thing here and there, it is almost coming to an end, so take a peak before I go ahead and do the lining.

Dollar Store Scarf Up-graded

I know it has been a long time but my hands are still busy! Hope you are doing fine!

Just because everyone and I mean everyone seems to have at least one item with some animal print, I decided to give it a shot and for nothing less than $1.25 I got a scarf at a local dollar store at the mall where I -still- work.

Though I did not like it at first, it was indeed too plain the poor thing.
I then sewed both ends together twisting it before sewing of course in order to make an infinity scarf. Still not happy I ended up using some kind of elastic to give it a nice flow.
I created an edging that I quite liked -it was quick and fun to make- and sprinkled some sequins (I decided no to use fabric glue, sewing was easier, more secure and faster at that point.
I liked the result and hope you do too!

Crochet Pineapple top- for women

Hi my friends,

I hope you are all doing well, I have to wer black to winork, and plus I’ve always wanted to try this pineapple top I saw the pattern a looooong time ago so I believe 3 to 4 years, I bought a magazine with one variation of the pattern and left is aside. Now I made up my mind but did not want to follow one pattern only, so I kind of made the top with larger pineapple motif and because I thought it might become a little too loose make only chains alond the body I did some variation of stitches, therefore I did not get bored  and it did make my “belly” feel more let’s just say protected. At the bottom I did smaller sizd pineapples and because I did not count the stitches as I went along I had to make  them work in order to have even motif numbers.

Of course I used did 5 chains and 1 sc to finish off at the last row just because it seemed right.

I already had some compliments, but what it best, I loved the final result.

Kids tee -pineapple crochet adventure part 2 and last

So my dear ones,

As I move on my new job, it seems to me I have little time to dedicate to my crochet blogs, though I still save some for my crochet adventures, which include a pineapple top -for myself to wear at work, and the completion of my daughter’s pineapple crochet tee.

I am triyng to figure out a way to take a picture of my top it is nice lacy and black, since I left my mannequim back home in Brazil, I have to find out how to give you an idea of how it looks, meanwhile take a look at the last and final version of the tee.

I Liked this edging for its A line kind of shaping, that I secured would be formed by adding a few more chain stitches and a sort of a V in the row prior to the last one.

I made a flower to go with it and it was a wonderful opportunity for me to make some use of this cute buttom I purchased a long time long ago.

I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it, and I followed no pattern since I changed a gazzilion times to accomodate her mood changes and mine as well.

Kids tee crochet pineapple adventure

Hi every one,

I decided it was time for me to find a little job, and do something in crochet too! I am working again and at the same time want to take advantage of the Summer and work on this project. So I tried this edging to finish up a crochet tee for my daughter.
I didn’t like the final result. It seemed to tighten up her waist and she already is slim. I thought about not only undo the top part of it as well as the edging, I believe it will look way better, but before I unraveled everything I decided to show you, the edging pattern is really nice but not for what I intended. For the tee I don’t have any patten it is just “poping up my mind”

Pattern for the edging:

You will realize I changed the shells I didn’t work the 3 dc cluster, instead I did 2 dc 1ch 2dc.

Then I’ll just go back to my crochet and hope i can come back here with a better final project!

take care you all,

Drikka.
