New jewelry

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

Cute rugs, made with popcorn flowers and braided rings found here : 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: 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:

swim suit

For more visit her blog :, 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

cape, swim suite cover or skirt?

found on 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:

and a perline bracelet, on pink and gray!2014-03-22 12.57.37-2

I think it’s enough for today.:)


Weekend crafts

I still fight with the black shrug, so it’s not crochet. But, in the mean time I need small projects, just for fun.

Something as jar transformed in a vase with some glue and yarn, or a recycled jeans pocket transformed in a pouch or mini-purse, or a flat spi4ral bracelet. Still blue one:). Or a macrame spring colors one.

The vase needs a flower I think. And some acrylic paint for the bottom:D. Not enough yarn> It happens…

I hope you like my non-crochet crafts:)
