Fold it over

I has been so long since I showed any bag on the blog, although I have some... Currently I am in love with clutches.

Hey, because it is a small bag in your bag!! How many other bags do you have in your handbag? I have a wallet, a cosmetic purse, a shopping bag and a clutch in my handbag. Does my cell case count? I like when my neccessities are organized, otherwise I can't find anything... Okay, it is never easy to find my keys...
 I made a few fold over clutches. They are available in my shop.

This purple was one of the first I made. It has no decoration except that huge button. 

About a month ago I found a really nice fabric in my fav store. It is actually made from cotton, so it is perfectly mashine washable, but looks like linen.

These two bags are decorated in different ways. The crocheted edges has been made from mercerized cotton yarn.

On Saturday I guest posted on Roanna's blog with the pattern of the crocheted edges and the button. Visit her to get the instructions!

 To this baby I sewed a doily and used a Tokaji wine cork as a button! Do you know Tokaji? It is a world-famous hungarian wine bland. To learn more about it read The NY Times' article about a wine tour in Tokaj! (And yes, the Aszu is truly the most delicious wine in the world. Just imagine a wine for that each grape berries are picked individually in November and it's color like Topaz.) 
Have I already told you that I am a huge fun of sweet wine (and chocolate)?

I love my clutches' size. They are perfect for the necessities: cosmetics, jewellery, your daily fruit or chocolate dosis to the office. But I put there yarns :) Enough roomie to store two skeins or your running project... if it is not a blanket...

I hope you liked my clutches!


  1. These fold over clutches are so stylish... they are the perfect dress up or casual accessory. My bag is full of bags to keep things separate! It's the only way I can find things too!

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
•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
