I love butterflies.

They are colorful.

They are happy.

And they even symbolize belief in something good and beautiful that may come our way.

 

For all these reasons, and also for I am a real crochet maniac, I thought it would be great to make about 120 of them.

Plus 20 flowers.

I’ve had the best time ever!

 

The butterflies and flowers have found their place in my newly opened shop.

 
 

They are waiting there for a crafty person to adopt them and use them in some super cute project.

 
 

Enjoy!

Love,
Petra

 

P.S.: Tomorrow we are leaving for a super-fun-four-day holiday. I can’t wait. I’ve been waiting for that holiday for ages. As usual, I am planning to take a zillion pictures. At least! And I will sure share the cutest of them here with you.

Done.

Finished.

Here it is.

 
 

Last time I showed you these squares.

They were so much fun to make.

You can find the tutorial here.

 
 

After I finished the squares (and stared at them lovingly for about three hours) I went on and crocheted them together to make two panels.

One panel has more yellow in it, the other one has more green tones.

AND, I’ve found out that by crocheting things together I can make the seams look so much neater.

Love that.

 
 

The last thing I made was a long strip that I used to join the panels with.

And again, I connected the panels and the strip by crocheting them together.

That’s a good thing to do.

 
 

Oh!

There’s one more ‘last thing’.

The really last thing that I am considering to do with this bag is to line it with fabric.

And here’s where I’d like to ask you, dear skillful crafters out there: Have you ever done that?

(I mean lining a bag with fabric.)

And have you ever done that by hand?

(I mean lining a bag with fabric.)

What do you think?

Is that and easy job to do?

(I mean lining a bag with fabric.)

Sorry.

And thanks.

Caps.

Hand made caps.

My Mom’s made them.

This winter.

 
 

A purple cap.

Love the color.

Love the pom-pom.

 
 

They all have pom-poms.

 
 

I like the pattern.

And the colors, too.

 
 

This might be my most favorite one.

I love all shades of gray.

For some reason.

 
 

Cute, cute, cute.

 

See?

It’s totally in the genes.

With me it’s mostly slippers and purses that I feel this strange need to produce in dozens. My Mom, on the other hand, makes cap after cap after sweater after cap after sweater… after cap.

I love her.

 

Hey, guys! Do you also have an obsession that runs in your family and you love it?

I need to know…

It seems I’ve been on a serious crochet binge recently.

All I think about are stitches, slippers, teddy bears, and purses.

Whee!

I really can’t stop it.

What a life! I know.

 

A few days ago I found a new crochet stitch.

It’s called the ‘crocodile stitch’.

I fell in love with it… and made a purse using the stitch instantly.

It’s the one in the picture.

 
 

The stitch might look a little difficult, but it’s not.

It’s very relaxing actually.

Well, if you know how to make a chain stitch and a double crochet stitch.

And even if you don’t, they are easy to learn. You can find great tutorials here and here.

 
 

In case you’d like to see how to make the crocodile stitch itself, then you can have a look at this and this.

 

I wish you the most wonderful week.

Love,

Petra
