A few months ago we made papier-mache balloons with the kids: https://neridacraft.com/2020/07/02/papier-mache-balloons That time I decided that I will crochet balloons... and I finished them today! I made 6 finally, all using the same pattern (see below), but with slight changes and different colours to make them attractive.😊 I saw similar hot air balloons on… Continue reading Hot air balloons in the clouds
Happy New Year!
We celebrated New Year’s Eve at home with the kids this year, we played a lot with board games, cards, puzzles, made cakes, and listened to music... and also played with our new hand drums we made together! 😊 The instructions are from this blog: https://www.momsandcrafters.com/make-hand-drum/ Actually I could not make it with balloons as… Continue reading Happy New Year!
As promised in my previous post about christmas gomes, let me share here my gnome’s pattern. https://neridacraft.com/2020/12/22/christmas-gnomes/ As I wanted to make a bigger one than those I made in the above collection, I used a thicker yarn, and a 4,5 mm crochet hook. First I made one using similar colours as the previous ones… Continue reading Chenille gnomes

I already forgot about it, I should have done this years ago... but sometimes you find hidden treasures when you tidy up the rooms.😊 I’m not quite sure where I got the idea or the pattern from, but I thought I could rework it and… Continue reading Sock monkey

Last year I saw beautiful crocheted jewelleries in a market where you could buy handmade products. Those I liked the best were bracelets made by rings crocheted around. They are easy to make, and with this technique many different designs can be made by varying the colors, the number of the rings, or their size.… Continue reading Rings bracelet
My son will have bithday next week, that they will celebrate with his group in the nursery school as well. For the party it’s not allowed to take in real cakes this year due to the stricter regulations, so I decided to make a paper cake instead. 😊 I found this solution in an other… Continue reading Birthday cake
