After crocheting so many pillows recently I felt I still need a new one, a flower-shaped pillow that I haven’t made yet. Finally I ended up with three 😊: When I finished with the first one (on the left), I thought it would be better with wider petals, so made a second one (in the… Continue reading Crazy – daisy pillows
Hug the rainbow
While I am working on something, just crochet or trying to make a new design, many cases I find something so cute that I want to crochet right away.... 😊 In such cases I stop what I’m doing, and start something new... that is not really good, but in some cases it helps to find… Continue reading Hug the rainbow
Who has birthday among us?
I (re)started crocheting a few years ago, when my son was born, and made toys, hats, boots for him. Since then I’ve made a lot of things, but almost everything for my kids (sometimes for myself, or my wider family, or just to try out a new technique, to test if I can design something… Continue reading Who has birthday among us?
Doll in giraffe outfit
While I’m working on a crocheted piece or design, sometimes I come across with an other thing I could make, for example a cute amigurumi figure I cannot resist temptation to start to crochet immediately. 😊 This happened with this doll in giraffe outfit I found here: https://amigurumi.today/free-amigurumi-doll-in-giraffe-outfit-crochet-pattern/ It was easy to crochet, and I’m… Continue reading Doll in giraffe outfit
After the stars, the moon and the heart shaped pillows, I made a cloud pillow as well. 😊 I reworked the pattern of the clouds I made for the hot air balloon wall hanger, enlarged it and made a few changes to be suitable for the yarn I used for the pillow. https://neridacraft.com/2021/01/05/hot-air-balloons-in-the-clouds/ Size: it’s… Continue reading Cloud pillow
Just one more pillow to show: a heart-shaped one! I crocheted this using the pattern from here: https://www.garnstudio.com/pattern.php?id=5077&cid=17 Actually I used the same yarn (Himalaya Dolphin Baby (100 polyester; 100g - 120mt/131 yds; hook size 4.5 mm)) as for my other pillows, and a 4.5 mm crochet hook. I love it! 😊 Cheers, Judit
A few months ago I posted on crocheted star pillows I made; https://neridacraft.com/2020/11/07/star-pillows/ today I finished the pattern for the Moon pillow as well. 😊 It’s actually much easier than the stars, and can be done pretty fast. I used the same yarn, Himalaya Dolphin Baby, as for the stars, and a 4.5 mm crochet… Continue reading Moon pillow
Hot air balloons in the clouds
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
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
Last week I thought it’s time to crochet a Christmas gnome. I made one, then a second one, and I loved them so much I had to make an other one, and finally I could not stop... 😊 The result is that I have more than 20 amigurumi gnomes now. 😊 Here they are together… Continue reading Christmas gnomes
