Textile flowers for a book releaseparty

I’m attending one of my multitalented friends book releaseparty tonight. Made some homemade crocheted and sewed flowers.

It’s nice they will keep for a very long time!

Glamour for cold feet at kindergarten

The autumn is slowly getting colder here. Kindergarten is located in an old beautiful building. Only one flaw… draught… Crocheted these slippers for tomorrows games.

The flower is built up of standard leafs sewed on one-by-one (point out) and a ball, cut from a ball-ribbon, in the middle. Anti slip á la glamour with soles of metallic gold yarn.
Flower petal: chain of 7 turn, 2ch, 3dc, 2sc, 1sl st, 1ch, turn and crochet back on the ”underside” of the chain; 1sl st, 2sc, 4dc, last 1 sl st in the first ch. Leaf: same but with chain of 10. (=7dc).

Birthday gifts for a craftLover

Look at my wonderful birthday gifts from friends and family! I love the crochet cuckoo clock! It’s from Amsterdam. Some of the books I got is from YesAsia.com which I can recommend. It’s safe and fast to order – it only took a week from HongKong to Sweden.
A box filled with yarn! What more can a girl want ?

Craftblog with mixed media

I’m a craft freak and have been since I was 6. With this blog I hope to come in contact with my fellow crafters of the world.

Despite my blogs name (the first name of the blog was; crochetcouture_craftblog), I’m not only working with crochet, but i’ts my absolute biggest love amongst the crafts. I work in all craftrelated techniques; knitting, embroidery, sewing, drawing. My new love is amigurumi and softies.
