DIY your weekend::: Mug cozy

| | 8 commenti

Good evening lovely people and a Happy Valentine's day to you!  It would be nice to organize a crafty weekend with your valentine! This time the idea came from my larder, cause I'm a mug collector! 

I'm not sure where my 'obsession' with mugs came from:::  I can only say that in every shop I came I want to stop by and admire  (or buy) them! Therefore now that I'm a crafter (!) I want to customize every blank mug I see! I'm happy to share with you few nice ideas, realized exploring a wide range of materials and tecniques. The first DIY is from 'Le idee della Vale' a super cute blog full of nice DIY, whereas the last is a cozy crochet project perfect for S. Valentine so happy hooking!

Pop Pochettes

| | 22 commenti

Hello crafty people, happy monday to everyone! Thank you for all your kind comments on my striped handwarmer pattern::: I feel very blessed to have this space to share my crochet adventures! Just popping in to show you my finished pochettes! I crocheted them in september and I could have finished it ages ago but as usual I was doing other crafty things along side it! But now I'm excited to show you the fully realized crafts:::  

Everything to do with thread, fabric and  machine sewing, has been intriguing me but I have no experience in, so my friend Carla help me to end the job! The fabric used for me is perfect cause I like dot blot sooo much and I'm so glad to have found this fabric in grey.

I love the way this pochettes has turned out::: I have change the pattern a little because I used two different yarn and the tension was quite different. I create the pochettes in two different sizes:  the bigger and the smaller one perfect as a cosmetic bag!

Last week I take part in two amazing  link party so big hello to new followers!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week ahead!
