afghan


afghan


I made this with a huge single needle(looks like a huge nail ! ) and a crochet hook .

I was inspired by all the different colored  yarn I had left from afghans I had made over the year . It actually turned out to be a favorite of mine and everyone that sees it remarks at how beautiful it looks . Its unique pattern makes everone always take a second look.

WREATHS (fabric & beads)


BLUE WREATH


BLUE WREATH DEATAILS UP CLOSE.


SMALL BLUE WREATH


LARGE PINK WREATH WITH BEADS & ROSETTES

Making these wreaths is so rewarding ... each one is so unique ..The fun all starts with the decorating . I use many different types of beads and flowers , No two will ever be alike . I have also made different sizes and shapes ... I had a request for a heart shaped one and it came out just beautiful. 


Here are the instructions I used to make this wreath:
Things You'll Need:
12" or 14" or any shape you like to use  Styrofoam
3 yards of fabric of your color choices ( light fabric works best. I have done some for weddings in the veil fabric and they come out looking like you wouldn`t believe )
Pencil or screwdriver
Pinking shears
Elmer's glue
Bow , Florette's,beads (optional)

1.With pinking shears, cut fabric into 3-inch squares.
 
2.Wrap fabric around pencil or screwdriver with right side of fabric facing pencil or screwdriver , add a little bit of Elmer's glue .
 
3.Push fabric into wreath and pull out pencil or screwdriver, leaving fabric in wreath.
 
4.Attach bow and decorate with Florette's and beads  if desired and hang on door to display.

crochet peach/yellow hat





I just finished this hat today . I made it with 100 % cotton crochet thread.
I am not sure why it looks pink and yellow
in the pictures because it is actually peach with yellow.
This is part of my Christmas collection .

poncho ( 4/5 yr old)


PONCHO

I made this on my spare time taking a break from liya`s sweater . I only work with yarn on the colder days . I prefer working with threads on hotter days and I seam to get more done when I switch from one project to another . It keeps me more motivated.
