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.

Marina mini-crochet dress- for those BFF bears

Image

Hello again,
After the last small cushion cover, last week I also worked on this project. It so happens that my daughter loves her Marina, Fresh Beat band, crochet dress I made for her before Christmas, if it was up to her she would wear it every other day. I don’t let her to, but she does wear it often.
Now that she got this BFF bear, a Spring sensation she got for her birthday at build a bear workshop, she also wanted her friend Lizzy to have a matching dress for herself. I did it, since I put up the pattern for the child’s one, I really didn’t find much trouble putting this one together.

Hope you like how it came out:

Crochet in Progress- last part- Granny Square cushion cover

Hi everyone,

Sorry having taken so long, things at home are running out of my control, kid fell ill, I started to tutor a 5th grade student, and lots more going on.

So, even though I finished the cushion last week and it has become a dear one to my daughter ever since than, I just did not have the chance to take a picture until now.

Hope you like the way it came out.

Crochet in Progress- good old granny part 2

Hello again my dear friends,

I do hope you had the most wonderful weekend, mine was full of kid’s adventures, my daughter had no class due to a teacher convention on Thursday and Friday, so it was a bit of a vacation for us. What brings to the next info; no, I was not able to finish my crochet cushion cover yet.

Even so I was able to fasten off all those crazy pieces of yarn in the back part of it, and since that is what takes longer I believe by tomorrow I’ll be able to show you the last part of my let’s call it “project”, shall we?

Here are the recently uploaded pictures:

See you,

Crochet in Progress good old granny square

Hey you,

There is no doubt life is full of surprises. But once you open yourself to them, and with an open heart true feeling.It works, there is not a place I have been, I hadn’t learned a thing or two, and boy I have been to places…
Never tried drugs though, that is not wht I mean, I once learned at the University with my then Psychology professor in a workshop about drugs and alcoholism that some people don’t have the genetics to be a drug dependent, and others do, and the only way to really get to know it is if you ever tried it. Well I took his word for it, after all why would I ever try them? When you have to support yourself and afford your own University you ought to know better. What I mean is I’ve been to many places, from downtown São Paulo, among 2 million people on a daily basis to get the perfect yarn or cristal for a jewelry, samba schools right before Carnival, to really fancy hotels and restaurants. No matter where you go if you use your listening ears, you are about to have a certain kind of experience.

Let’s cut the crap  I mean talk and go on showing what I am up to lately I want to voer a horrible small green cushion. In order for me to do that I am doing the so known pattern of a granny square, see the beautifully made instructions in this blog I consider genious Purl Bee it is nice, traditional, and has such cozy looking.

Based on this picture  on the cover of Simply Crochet Magazine I ended up making the border in white too because it gives the squares a nice ‘clean’ finishing and even compliment the colors I used, so I will go on with it and think I might be able to finish it up in the ner future,
