Merry Christmas

With Christmas we have the tradition that
the girls can pick one Christmas decoration for the tree.
This year Ella chose the red peak
and Zoe the purple glittery angel.
As you can imagine our tree is
a mitch match of decorations.
I love the combination of beautiful, ugly and selfmade
in our tree.

Schoolvacation is starting tomorrow
so I`m going to leave you
for a while.
I`ll be back in january
with more granny patterns,
new tutorials
and lots of good spirit.

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones
a sparkling new year
with lots of crafty goodness.

Granny square challenge week 12

Here is the result of my granny owl square.
They are so cute.
The pattern is pretty clear 
so I have no notes.
I made 5 rounds for the square instead of 3.
 For the eyes I used beads
because I don`t have 8 pairs of black buttons.
I think this looks very nice too.
Don`t forget to make eight of these babies.

Good luck and have fun

Dutch translation

sc = single crochet = vaste
dc = double crochet = stokje
hdc = half double crochet = half stokje
tc = treble crochet = dubble stokje

Granny square challenge week 11

picture Vicki Brown

This is the granny square I was working on
but didn`t turn out very well.
It looks nice in the picture
and I don`t know what is going wrong.
But ala I`ve put it aside
and this is what I am working on now.

I think they are very cute.
But they are not finished yet.
So no picture of my version
no NOTE`s.
For the ones who are ready to start a new pattern
and can`t wait to begin.
The pattern is called owl granny square
and it comes from Repeat Crafter Me.
If you are behind
you can try to catch up.
I must admit I`m a little behind too
when we have our Christmas break
I also have some catching up to do.
We are going to make eight owls 
instead of four.
Next week my own pictures and note`s
if neccesary.

Sharp crochet hook

I think about a year ago I bought a sharp crochet hook.
It has been patiently waiting
to get used.
And now I finally came around to using it.
The hook has a sharp point on top
so you you can easily make edges on fabric
without hemstitching first.
I made flanel pajamapants and made a shell edging.
Read this post for how to.
Allthough it damages the fabric a little bit
I love the result.

Granny square challenge week 10

Yeah we are into the 2 figures
week 10 has arrived.
This week you can find the pattern on Ravelry.
It`s Flower Grannysquare from Silja Devine.

In row 2, after the ch3 and 1 dc, first ch 3 before you make the 2dc.
Everything between * * you repeat all around.
I decrease by taking up the first loop of two stitches, crochet them together.
In row 5 you make (1tr, ch 3, 1 tr) in the same stitch.
After making row 8 I continued with the same pattern as in row 7 and 8
but then dc instead of sc.
(Don`t forget the 3 dc in the same stitch in the corners)
Row 9 pink, row 10 white.

Good luck and have fun

Dutch translation

ch = chain = losse
sl st = slip stitch = halve vaste
sc = single crochet = vaste
dc = double crochet = stokje
tr = treble crochet = dubbel stokje
dec = decrease  = minderen

I made this cute bag as a gift for a little girl.
The pattern I used is from colour in a simple life.
You can find the download on Ravelry.
I made some changes
I usually do, haha.
First I crocheted the shoulderband onto the bag
then I made the edging.
The flowers are from the japanese book
