Inspiration

Long time no crocheting or writing, sorry. I did some amigurumis for my shelf at Nelly's but then some things in my life changed and I didn't have the energy or inspiration to crochet anything. That's a shame since summer is the time when tourists wisit the shop... well anyway I found my inspiration after weeks, or was it a month, when we drove pass Alestalon textileshop and I suddenly remembered I needed more tricot reels. Some time ago I started crocheting a tricot pouf but I ran out of tricot yarn so now I bought some more and finished the pouf. The funny part was when I came to the stuffing. I had been saving some old cloths and leftovers to fill the pouf with but I can tell you that they didn't even fill it half way so I had to go through my closets until I had enough to fill the whole thing. And at the same time I got a chance to tidy up my closets that really needed it. The finished pouf;

 Some time ago I crocheted these for Nelly´s. I end my selling there 31.7.

Wallet and new yarn

I made a wallet, it was hard I tell you! But it came out nice in the end.



And I found some lovely colored yarn! Now I just have to figure out what to make :)

Cats

Is a fine lady allowed to sit like this?
I like cats! It's nice sewing with great fabrics.


 We took a walk in the sunshine and stopped by Nelly's to drop of my sewing's.

I like dots...

I found this lovely fabric at the craft fair and yesterday when I wanted to start sewing something of it I fell asleep and woke up 12(!) hours later and had overslept,  had 30 mins to get out of bed and head to work, I got there in time but I wonder why I needed so many hours of sleep.. Well today I have been anything but tired, did not even notice that the time flew by and suddenly it was bedtime. Just wanted to post this and then I'm heading to sandman's land. My sewing machine has been humming and I have really liked working with dots;

T-shirt yarn projects

I used T-shirt yarn to make these;

Usually I make up my own patterns but now I was lazy and found a pic of this headband here
it was not an actual pattern, only a photo but I figured it out myself :)

And then I made a big necklace! Pattern is easy: ch 4, sc in third ch from hook, ch 4, sc in third ch form hook, and after repeating that for a while; tadaa finished!

I got so happy when I went to Nelly's today with some new products and saw that I have sold 4 amigurumis in less than 2 weeks. It's not even the season for tourists yet, so I'm really looking forward to summer.

Goodbye 2,5 mm hook


Thank you for your faithful service 2,5 mm. Sleep well in the heaven of hooks. 


Now I'm gonna get acquainted with my smallest hook, don't even know the mm on this one, doesn't say on it? it says; JMRA 10 ..I know size 12 is 0,55 mm so it's smaller than that :)

Black Jack is enjoying the sunshine, as we all are!

Sleepy friends

I had fun making these sleepy friends




Nelly's

Went to Nelly's after work to drop by some amigurumis and the hearts I made.
Here' my shelves

This bear didn't sit on the shelf so I guess he has found a new home. He is one of my first amigurumis, I remember when my sister helped me take pictures outdoors in the sunshine..

Findings at a craft fair

My sister insisted I blog about what I bought last Sunday at a craft fair. My coworker phoned me and asked me to join her at the fair and I'm glad I went. I did some true findings, like tricot reels from which I made  hearts and a basket.

I found bows in blue-white, like the one Lucy is wearing,

I also found buttons with dots, and the edging on the skirt.
Well, I don't even remember everything I bought, but one thing I didn't find was safety eyes, which I would need. Now I'm making Lucy a friend.

Schroomies and friends

I have a sore thumb thanks to all the safety eyes..they just wont attach to their washers..but every amigurumi needs eyes so I've been pushing hard! Today I left earlier from work and had time to make price tags for the "products". Now they are sitting on shelves at Nelly's waiting for someone to take them home. I took for sale a bunch of amigurumis I made a long time ago, but here are the new ones:

 I made more schroomies than this but didn't take a pic when all were finished, here's three from the schroomy family.

 The glue has not dried yet...

mega ears on a bunny... he's cuter irl

Giraffe

I came home from a trip to Berlin and the same evening I started making a giraffe for sale at Nelly's. Now when the giraffe is finished, I would like to keep it for my self :) I have longed for the day when I finally crochet a giraffe but now I really had the inspiration and here's the result, which I am slightly proud of:




Giraffe pattern

Now I'm off to Nelly's signing the contract!

Be my ValentineBear! This bear is the first one fore sale. The thing is I'm going to crochet amigurumis for sale at Nelly's ! I'm really exited but also scared that I wont sell anything :( I'm getting shelfspace for 50euros per month so at least I hope I'll get  it payed back...

I found a new yarn. This yarn is amazing and I made a scarf in no time;



Too bad I didn't buy more of this yarn since it was on sale. Maybe I'll find more somewhere!
