Rose bouquet with winding crocheted Ivy

I lost my dad the 5th of March 2010. I wanted to make a funeral decoration myself. I was his only child and I got my crafting skills from him. I made this bouquet of fabric Roses with crocheted leaves and long winding Ivy.Roses and winding Ivy

I’m working on a tutorial with patterns and all the pieces :) If you want to make one like it yourself.
See you soon! :)

Floral USB memory stick

A little more flowers in your life can’t hurt… can it?
Started out with a 2Gb Usb memory stick – boring boring… had to cut of a plasic bit on the end and smooth the edges with a file.
Then I crocheted tight around it in two pieces, one top & one bottom. I used embroidery yarn (Perl) multi colored green. A little bit of what I fancy = flowers. I took linnen embroidery yarn and made random tiny leafs and flowers.
Sewed them all on the crocheted USB cozy cover.

It’s working well and it nearly blends in to the floral background here on my work desk at home.

More Loom flower Daisies

I don’t know where I’m going with this experiment yet.  Made small Daisies out of thick wool yarn (Lovikka). This yarn is normally used for really heavy winter mittens.
I like them better without the green border.
On to the next! See you soon!


No more gLoomy days! It’s spring!

Have been thinking hard about what to do with the loom flower project I wanted to start. Sketching about it. Nothing felt right. Until I did this sketch. This is a typical Inger project isn’t it? Fun to make but makes no sense at all.
Can I pull this off, wearing this swim cap? Can you see me at the beach this summer? :-D
I love Daisies. They are so sweet looking. Had a couple of rolls of plastic ribbon (don’t know the word for this product in english). Made a test and it was so much fun! Ended up with a little pile of plastic Daisies.



This makes me SOOO happy!!! Look at this cap! I love it. Have to buy a green swimsuit :-D.


Who wants to explore the universe of LOOM-flowers with me?

I have seen this flowers, made with something called a loom-plate, in several craft books from the 70′s. It looks fantastic an I want to try it out. I’m wondering if enyone else want to discover the loom-flower-technique with me? If you want to join in or if you already are working with this technique, I would love to hear from you. Drop me an email or comment here and we can start exploring this together.
I would love to get some tips on where to find out more about these flowers.

Couldn’t find any loom-plates that had movable pegs so I’m going to start experimenting with this knitting-loom. I will post my trial & errors here in my blog. I’m very curious about yours too. :-)


Floral necklace

My old friend ”Mosquito” had her big birthdaybash yesterday. Made her a necklace out of vintage jewelry-parts from my stash. It became a bit ‘Hawaii in the 50′s’….I long for the summer..

One-man textile factory here…

I’m starting my own Etsy shop in December. Made more flowers this weekend. I thought they would be nice to sell in the shop.

Crocheted winter brooches

My friends will recognize these brooches which I have been selling for a couple of years now. This time I changed them a little with an orange ball from a ball-ribbon and embroided yarn knots.

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!
