Think of the time, it’s been almost one year since I last posted! Reason being I haven’t been up to crocheting lately.
I haven’t been up to coloring either, because we finally decided to hang out here for longer so last year – in December more precisely we bit the bullet and purchased a townhouse here in Edmonton and between making this a home instead of a house, working a lot at my job, and reading lots of books, I left my other activities dorment for this while, because don’t you dare forget I’m also a mom and wife.
Never mind recently my already pre-teen beautiful daughter asked me to crochet some cushion covers for her bedroom. And I started looking for my long forgotten nonetheless beloved crochet material.
Looking up on Pinterest after so many months had passed has been fun. Here I came across a beautiful thread cushion cover on Simply Crochet magazine and it gave me the necessary boost to re start. Here is how it is coming along.
Thank you for stopping by, next time I come back I’ll show you the final result. I’m making two by the way.
I really mean it when I say I missed you and this cozy corner,
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.
Off I go to bed now, work tomorrow and after that my new project…
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.

I have to take more pics and show you on Sunday hopefully, and have to go now,
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!
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:
She liked it, from Monday on it’s been her only outfit, she wears in bed and during the day, Lizzy the bear I mean,
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:
So, be here tomorrow to check out how it came out!
