crocheted mary janes...

i've been rushing this last minute order to be sent out in time for the coming chinese new year... *phew*

3 baby booties, 2 in 5 inches size (blue and pink) and 1 in 4 inches size (pink). i'm using a different yarn this time round. something softer and which i think will be more gentle to the baby's skin. hence my gauge was off and i had to spend quite some time crocheting and then frogging (that's pulling out the yarns for the non-crocheters out there) and crocheting again to get the right stitch count and size. but at last, i managed to finish them last night.

the photo quality here is not so good, coz i snapped it at 2am and i was dead sleepy already! ;)

another wrist bag...

a friend wanted this bag too... and requested it to be in black with red flower, her favourite colour combination! so here it is...

do you think the flower's a tad too big, or is it just me?

i think the flower is too gory! seriously, every time i look at it, i shudder! so i actually made a smaller red flower for my friend. if she too can't stand the loudness of this giant red wheel of a flower, she just needs to cut it out and replace it with the smaller one.

for the pattern, go read my previous post on how you can get your hands on them!

wrist bag for my niece...

last chinese new year, my niece's little handbag was torn by her rowdy cousins, who must've played tug-a-war with it (girls nowadays! *rolls eyes*). when i knew about it, i secretly made up my mind to crochet a little bag for her... but as usual, i procrastinated. hehe... and now a year has passed! so i quickly put together a wrist bag in a sweet shade of pink for her, and adorned it with little purple/pink flowers. again, looks kinda japanese-ish, right? that's because i got the flower patterns from a japanese crochet book!

anyway, the pattern for this wrist bag is free but i think they've closed down the site. however, i still have a soft copy of the pattern, so if any of you wish to give this bag a try, just post me a comment with your e-mail addy and i'll just e-mail it over to you in a jiffy! ;)

hope my niece likes it!

starling handbag

got this pattern from futuregirl... if you want to give it a try, download it here.

i adorned it with clovers... don't you think it looks kinda japanese-ish? hehe...

anyway, i did not use the foundation single crochet in the pattern coz it looked kinda complicated. so i just stick to single crochets and it still came out ok.

and i put in lining for this bag. love it!
