Crochet Satchel

Onto one more gift I made for my co-sis's daughter. I made her a small satchel to carry around.
The button is what I love the most on it. It is wooden. 
I did want to apply a clear coat of polish on it but then you never know what all kids lick and put in their mouths. So I left it as is.

I pretty much like the off-white sides. 

I packed it in a box along with the other handmade gifts for her

The packet reached her yesterday and it seems she is so thrilled with the satchel and not allowing her mom to take it from her :-) Yes, I am happy to hear that.

Floral Gifts

I had been wanting to make some thing for my co-sis's kid for a long time. The crochet flowers I made last week seemed like something good for her. So this is what I made using the flowers.

Hair clips

I had bought these tiny hair clips for her some time back. I tied on the flowers to the clips and they were ready. Too good.

Wanna see how they look when clipped on? 

Haha... I didn't have a cute young model!


I had made this band some time back. Now I added the flowers.

Sewed on the elastic.

And it was ready!

I created it a bit broad and am sure it would look cute on her.

And placed both in a packaging box ready to be mailed. There is one more gift for her beneath the flower clips and band. That I'll show you in my next post.

See you!

Floral Season

I recently am in love with pretty cute crochet flowers. I started making lots and lots of them and am using a mine own modified version of the Mollie flower tutorial. It is addictive. I have been using all my scrap yarn and making cute flowers in the past few days. 

I started making these tiny flowers as I didn't want to start on anything new and big for sometime as I have some important things to be taken care on the home front. And oh yes, my friend bought 2 bags full of yarn when he went visiting somewhere in North India. The colors are pretty and the yarn is soft. I really want to just start off with them. But I am giving myself some time now. I am awfully sad that I cannot start on new projects now, but almost everyday I take out all my yarn, spread them out neatly on the bed, admire the beauty, have some sweet cuddling time and pack it back all neatly and carefully. Phew, it is so tempting.

Okay, back to my crochet flowers. Time for some pictures now.
