Each one is slightly different, but each one is crafted with love and turned out quite well..

Crochet Doily Wall Decor

Hi all,
Today I am sharing with you that I did as just a random thing, but turned out quite beautifully. It started off as doing a trial on crocheting in rounds and started to emerge as a beautiful doily. I had no pattern in mind and it was a 'build-as-you-go' self pattern using the basic chain, single and double crochet stitches. After completing it i thought it will look better as a wall decor piece in a pink/blue frame. Yert to get that done though.. Here are the pics before the setting up .

I will post the framed ones once it is done!

Hope it turns out well.
Happy crafting folks :)

Mojo Monday 322

Hi all,
This is something i did for a friend of mine. His friend is celebrating his birthday and he requested a custom made card... It has been reaallllly long since i made a card. I followed the mojo Monday template to create his card.

Here is the template provided by Julee this week.

Below is the card I designed. There are lot of small items that went into making this card. Here is how it goes. 1. Base is a A4 sized handmade paper folded into two. 2. The ribbon part of the sketch is replaced by crochet yarn made into a bow and a crochetted heart.  3. The inner square is replaced by paper doily. I just love this paper doily. 4.The inner part of the card is made up of two small cards for writing additional cute stuff. :) , added some quilled hearts :) 5. The envelope is something different in this card. I haven't gone for a traditional envelope but just folded a A4 sheet printed with flower template around the card and added a silver ribbon :) :)
Here are the pics

Basket Weave Stitch Pouch WIth Puff Stitch Flower

Hi all,
Today I finished crocheting something that I did after learning two new stitches. The Basket weave stitch and the puff stitch. There are lots of tutorials to demo this and I must say the basket weave stitch is super cool. It has a beautiful texture and makes your material strong.
The puff stitch flower is a cute little flower that I had created separately. But since the colors complemented each other I added it. The button is also made out of a simple stitch base that is used to start all flowers.

Here is what it looks like.
Hope all of you like it :)

Happy crafting :)
