In this week I was working on

#1.  Ruffle scarf

I have finished this cute scarf in this week. At first I didn't like working with ruffle yarn too much, but as knitting went better, I came to like it. And the result is a fantastic girly scarf.

#2. Waist warmers


I got a super sewing machine from my mother-in-law. It is a really smart machine. Not a new one, but works perfectly and makes really nice stitches.
So, first project was sewing some waist warmers for me. Sitting in my office is sometimes too cold and I am also wearing them in the gym.
So I bought in the local Burda shop some fabric. I have to tell, that these materals aren't the best for it. Although they offered me them as costumers usually buy these for waist warmers. They are knit fabrics.
But they doesn't fit me, doesn't follow my lines. (I mean, the material stretches on my hip in the normal way, but streches on my waist too much.) Anyway not as confortable, as I expected. I would like to have tight warmers, which aren't sliding on me and also shape my figure.
Here is the pattern, what I used. I have to say, that the pattern is really good, but not for these fabrics.
I am trying to find or to develop a new version with these materials, or at the end I just buy an other stretchy fabric :)

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
Materials:
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)


Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.



You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
