This week I didn’t have enough time to finish my shrug, but it was enough for small projects.
That means few bracelets and a necklace:
a blue #embroidered denim #bracelet:
It is really wide (8 cm, 2.5 inches), and long (between 6 and 8 inches, just moving the buttons!). I used a #recycled piece of jeans, same as the embroidered pocket, and cotton perle (embroidery cotton, loco brand) for embroidery. I didn’t line it.
I will list this one on etsy latter.
And a gray one, with freeform #tatted flowers and white and dark gray buttons:
The denim piece it’s from my jeans, it looks like a newspaper. It’s 7.5 inches x 2.2 inches. For the tatting part, I used crochet thread.
I will list this one too. Because I already think to make another 2 or 3:D
So, let’s move on.
2 crocheted little bracelets:
The inspiration for these ones came from these rugs, it’s a magazine cover:
Cute rugs, made with popcorn flowers and braided rings found here : http://www.liveinternet.ru/users/jassonchik/post149545238/.For the yellow bracelet I used 15 chs, form ring, with 30 sc in ring. For the red one only 10chs with 20 sc in ring. It was a phototutorial somewhere on the web for that rug….
Anyway, I still want to make a rug. I found few cute patterns on web, for doilies most, like these:
Found here: http://pixs.ru/showimage/189189189j_9079889_3118332.jpg This one is a shawl pattern, but I like the idea with those little flowers in the middle>
If you want to try to find by yourself, try google images, works great if you type crochet or just find a diagram, right click and look for imageson Google. It will have millions of results…
And a lace one.
click on image for a decent size
It is a center table pattern, but with 2 strands cotton or wool and a minimum P crochet hook…
Or just make my own pattern, I don’t know yet, but I have the appropriate yarn I think.
Enough about rugs.
Some crochet projects for spring/summer: I want to make few tops, swim suits (covers, maybe?),a dress, few skirts and bags. And I want to try some bruges crochet too:
Let’s see what I found on web:
For more visit her blog : http://lucratoarea.blogspot.ro/search/label/BEACH, or click on image, it has a link.
Tops, I will make by myself, I didn’t find something to like it yet.
But I found this one, via pinterest

This can work great as a cape, a skirt or a swim suite cover I think.
And now, let’s go back to my work, #beading: a necklace, a colorful one with various type of beads:
I think it’s enough for today.:)
