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
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
This year my son asked for a dr Strange costume that he wanted to wear at the yearly costume party in the school. First I thought it will be a too big challenge, but then could put something together and my son loved it: He had a pair of blue trousers already to that I… Continue reading Preparation for school costume party
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?
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
I recently finished my first picture called ‘Sparkle Garden Crimson’ made with diamond painting. Actually this technique is much easier than I first thought, all you need to finish such a picture if you have a set is time, and lot of patience. 😊 I loved it so much that I already started a new… Continue reading Diamond painting
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
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!
