Preparations for my daughter’s 1st birthday…


Smocked Dress


Tried smocking…

Macrame Belt


I made a simple macrame belt for me using diagonal half hitch and square knot. It was a bit difficult for me to make as I didn’t have the right tools or expertise. It looks okay only when it’s stretched. I probably should have used double half hitch instead of the half hitch. Or maybe I should have used macrame chord instead of acrylic yarn. Please let me know if you have any ideas on how to improve it in the comments section…

Tea Coaster


Planned to make a tea coaster by weaving some super bulky yarn I had remaining from my previous project. As I could make only a small piece with it, I crocheted around it with 2 strands of yarn. I love how it turned out.

Woven Flower


I tried weaving using packaging material that came along with pans. It was a perfect loom. After stringing the loom with yellow yarn, I used needle to guide yellow, orange, red, orange and green yarns over and under the warp. Once I reached the desired size, I made knots slightly inside the edge to get the curved edges. And instead of cutting the warp yarn off, I turned it into the pollen for the flower.

Macrame Yarn Holder

20180411_141243Made a pot holder with acrylic yarn to learn basic macrame knots : half knot and square knot. I use it for holding the yarn I intend to use in my next project. I really love the idea of the making something new with yarn and simple knots. Also I could leave it on table without having to worry about it being inadvertently undone by my daughter.

Scrap Yarn Pot Holder


Made a pot holder with scrap yarns. I did single crochet with the red cotton yarn over Bernat Blanket Sailors Delight yarn placed spirally. I ended up with a conical item, probably because I had missed to double the stitches in the second row.  I really didn’t want to redo the entire thing, especially since I had redone it thrice for one reason or other. After pulling out some of the blanket yarn in the centre and placing a saucer on top of it overnight, it looks okay.

Loom Knit Blanket

My mom knit a blanket for my daughter using infinity loom. She did basketweave stitch on Bernat blanket yarn Sailors delight. I love the softness and texture of the blanket. Thank you mom for the wonderful gift.

Crochet Star Bonnet


Stitched a bonnet for my daughter. She looks very cute with it on. But she has learnt to pull off caps and hats. Hopefully she will use it in spring. I plan to knit one for her if she uses this.

I used star stitch for the bonnet and puff stitch for the flower. For the measurements I used my daughter who showed very little cooperation.
