First order

22 Aug

This is my first order ever! I’ve been asked by a friend to make her a new tablet case because she wasn’t satisfied with the one she had. So I let her chose between my fabrics and then I set to work.

It took me a while because I wanted it to be perfect. So, I stitched and unstitched it quite few times becase I wasn’t happy with the result. After several attempts here is the final product!

It is definitely better than my first e-reader case here, which dates back to exactly two years ago. So I also might be happy because my technique has improved since then! 😀

Doily fever

13 Aug

I’ve been definitely mesmerized by Zooty Owl’s doily patterns: they are lovely and easy, and the tutorials couldn’t be clearer. So, here is another doily I finished crocheting yesterday…..

Indian bracelet

Here is my latest bracelet. I actually copied it from a a colleague’s.  I used green crystal beads, silver toned wire, a chain and a heart shaped pendant support. Many thanks to Marina for modelling. 😀
