Easy crochet headband (or my first crochet!)

Easy crochet headband (or my first crochet!)

When I started to try knitting, I joined Ravelry, a community for knitters and crocheters, to learn about knitting and have a look at all those patterns and projects. Naturally I’d bump into some crocheted projects too, and then I started to get curious. I chose this easy crochet headband from creativeyarn because it is,Continue Reading →

Birthday Morning

Birthday Morning

Taken with my new camera, a birthday present from my husband. Yay!

Yellow hat

Yellow hat

I finally finished it in about three days, and it turned out to be, uh, a bit too small for Sidra. Darn it. But as usual, he’s very excited about the new hat. I added a pompom on top of the hat and another one of those bug button on the hat. This time, theContinue Reading →

But I rarely find one that fit, and two of my girl boxers were stolen when they were hung to dry. Perverts. SoContinue Reading →

Denim dress

Backpack

Backpack

Sidra asked for a new backpack, so I made this one from some fabrics in my stash. The outer fabric is brown gingham, and the lining is dark blue cotton with tiny patterns in grey. This backpack didn’t use any pattern. I just made a simple sketch and then drew some rectangles directly on the fabric. TheContinue Reading →

Ipod case

Ipod case

A simple ipod case from leftover fabrics. I use thick felt for the inside and some elastic for closure. The bottom of the case has a hole for earphones cables. The stitches are not so neat, but at least it’s useful.
