round bolero for summer

il_570xn-992972425_2zmt

As you can see I have a new friend modelling:))

For this one I used a 6.5 mm hook (K/10 1/2) and cotton, Catania works great I think.

For the middle: I used a doily diagrambolero center doily

You leave 2 holes for arms when you reach the distance between shoulders + 1 inch (2-4 cm) – I used 39 chains for S/M size (x2), then 2 rounds V stitch and an pineapple motif edging: (you can pick up any edging, I used the last one)

found on pinterest, obvious. Anyway, it’s a round bolero, or doily bolero, and it’s pretty!

Also I made a sunny dress with 3 cute flowers with buttons:

For the top I used this stitch:

And some block stitch for skirt, repeating spiderweb motif:D Any edge you like, see above. I used simple shells.

I hope you like it!

I have some wips but, I don’t have enough time right now….

Anyway my summer collection looks pretty well (my opinion, anyway:D)

I use a new app for etsy shops which helps you to sell directly on social media. And I have Direct Checkout on Etsy:D

Now let me introduce you my new crafts.

First a freeform vest:

on the back it’s a tree, few spirals and a lot of flowers.

A tatted necklace (needle tatting) which took me a while to accomplish, but pretty happy with it:

#spring colors:)

a blouse/tunic in black and white

the up is made with a really pretty yarn, and soft too.

And now I try to finish some new projects. I will show you only:

Lovely, isn’t it? But it takes a lot of time.

New jewelry and crochet

Happy New Year everyone!

I was so busy crafting that I forgot to post lately. I’m sorry for this. Let’s start with my new bracelets and necklaces. Some are listed on etsy or alittlemarket, some, not yet. I didn’t have time.

I hate when they try to translate your website and/or make “improvements” to help you. Grrrrrr. I hate when I want to post and things look different. This is an amethyst necklace with crystals and fimo beads, gemstones and chips. The second one is a Y-necklace, still amethyst:

il_570xn-904619162_3sj3

this one is already listed in my etsy shop.

And some nice bracelets I made

all made in the last two weeks.

About crochet now. I made a cute circular bolero with long sleeves in shades of grey, purple, pink and white:

this one is listed on my etsy shop. It seems that I can’t link anymore, or I don’t know where because they try to translate in Romanian (just trying, the result is a full bullshit). So, next time maybe I will post in my brand new website… I don’t have a pattern for this bolero. I will make another one to see how it works.

 

 

 

 

 

Bolero

Fresh from the hook, a new bolero with flowers:

And you have the stitch I used. It’s a little bit tricky, those 2 dc are in the back of the treble on RS (right side) and in front of the treble on the wrong side (US terms).

Not too much for a month, but I will post more often I hope!

I used a fan stitch border with picots. But this is at your choice:)

found on pinterest some:

crochet border / edging

Just a suggestion: try a different color, it’s pretty tough to work on black…

And my WIP this week:

It’s a dress in summer colors. It will be a dress, I hope I will finish it soon.

#crochet, #bolero

 

Shades of blue retro sweater

Fresh from the hook a new retro chic #crocheted sweater or shrug or bolero, with 3/4 sleeves and a big flower, no buttons.

It’s just dc and a fan border, but I love the result. The yarn and the shape make the difference, I think. And the flower, it’s a 3 layers flower, I’m not sure that you can see it… It is removable, so it will fit to S-M size. The yarn is blue, grey and some shades of brown, but less then it is in second picture.

It is really cute, isn’t it?:D

Now, I have to bead something, or make some nice bracelets or earrings or some gifts:) So next time I will post the results, I think.
