Cuts' n prints

I just felt a sudden urge this morning to cut a tee and paint some triangles on it. It felt gooood. And looks great if I may say.

Triple wrap craze

So, I stumbled upon a great tutorial on how to make triple wrap
bracelets. And now I can't stop. They're so easy to make
and they look lovely stacked on the wrists.

Etsy lover

So it's my second time ordering from etsy and I'm loving it. This time I bought a vintage crochet magazine from the lovely shop veraviola. She got a lot of vintage stuff so I'm guessing it won't be my last purchase there.

All work, no play

Sorry for the lack of updates. Just started working at a new place so my crafting has been put on hold for some time. After the weekend I'm off for a few days and my plan is to start sewing ( got a cute little machine from my sweet boyfriend ) and hopefully something blogworthy will be produced ;) Been thrifting a couple of times lately and I love the feeling of finding something absolutely gorgeous for almost no moneyzz, so get ready for some DIY. I'm also superexcited for a package to come from Mandy (check out her blog here.) I signed up on one of her giveaways and got lucky. I'm really thrilled :) You can find lots of giveaways here. 

In two weeks I've managed to make a ring.
I suppose that's better than nothing ;)

Project dreamcatcher

So I was checking out blogs the other day and stumbled upon a blog who has a tutorial 
on how to make a dreamcatcher and I suddenly felt an urge to make a necklace. 
It is very easy to make and it looks like a dream when finished, don't y'all think ;) 
I also felt that this page was of good use when making it.

Driving gloves

Yay, finally finished mi gloves. The pattern, which is found here, was a 
bit difficult at first, but after a couple attempts I got the hang of it.
Try, try again. Never give up ;)

Freaky friday

Crochet your own bangle/s. All you need is hook, yarn, filling and yarn needle.
Chain 2. 6 sc in second chain. Continue with 2 sc in each of the 6 (12 sc).
Now work in a spiral, sc in each sc around.
Stuff with filling every 4 cm. Fit it around the wrist for desired size.
Push the beginning of the bangle into the other end and
sew it together.
Bangle is made ;)

Seed beading

The inspiration

The result. 

One triangle and four to go. A very time consuming project, this triangle took about three hours to finish. First I started out trying to make one in peyote stitch, but it looked like sh*t. So then I tried brick stitching. At first it didn't seem to work either, but after getting a hang of it: tada. Seed beads are a bit hard to work with and it's not the flattest triangle. For a more perfected look I would recommend using delicas instead ;)

Granny square bonanza

Got a granny square project going on.
Hopefully it's going to turn out exactly the way
I'm picturing it in my head, but then again does
that ever happen ?!
And no, it's not going to be a blanket ;)
