New crochet handbag

While on holiday in beautiful Sicily, I have crocheted this cotton handbag using the special loop stitch and different shades of blue, resembling the colours of this wonderful sea. How do you like it?




Now listed in my shop, too! bag

Crochet baby set





What can possibly be more satisfying than crocheting something for a beautiful newborn baby? This set of baby beanie+sandals was created for little Giulia, born 2 weeks ago, though it will actually fit her only later on (she is so small right now!). It is in cotton and can also be found in my shop as a made to order item: baby set

Crochet bag with studs





Remember the slideshow with the making of the crochet spiral chord? Here's the end result: my crochet hobo bag with round base and many funny dots knots studs in contrasting colour all over it. It came out just as I wanted it, I shouldn't say it myself, but...I love it! Find it in my Etsy shop for € 75. bag

Small slideshow on crochet spiral chord




It took me about 8 tries and half a day to get it right, but in the end I made it! This is a crochet spiral chord (I am using it for a bag I just finished and am going to publish soon...so stay tuned!). It was particularly difficult to understand where to insert the hook. I am afraid this slideshow doesn't show it properly, but I am planning to make extensive tutorials soon.
