beyond the sea

Yesterday I was playing around with yarns, after my good friend Yakumo sent me like 10 (?!) mails asking me to make some Amigurumis... I didn´t try that technique yet. So I started making a simple circle, that looked a bit funny, especially when several of them were put together..
The result: a weird "coral look" brooch, that I decided to make black and red, simply because the clothes I wanted to wear had those colors. My colleagues were kinda freaking out with my new accessory. 
I was too... :)

It´s not so early, but it´s saturday and some of us are a bit hungover... so, why not treating ourselves with something sweet and creamy? 
Chocolate or vanilla? you choose!
These crocheted-cookie-broochs will sweet up your day

Be good :)

DIY: recicled glove criatures

In this world there are people with tons of imagination and talent. More than I will ever have. Let´s be honest! I´m just a newbie in the crafty-world... ;)
We are lucky enough people sometimes wanna share their "know-how" with the rest of humanity and teach us how to make by ourselves nice things, which is by the way, ten thousand times better than actually buying an ITEM. That´s the power of creating something with our own hands and the satisfaction of our work.
Miyako Kanamori, and artist born in 1970 in Kanagawa (Japan), published in 2008 "Happy Gloves: Charming Softy Friends Made from Colorful Gloves" from where this little tutorial is taken. I found it at the ETSY blog, and here I share it with you... gotta take a look inside my drawers for an old pair of gloves...


Liberty London: Prints

I´ve only been twice in London, while I was a student in Nottingham.
It´s one of my all times favourite cities (after Paris), and I cannot wait to visit it again someday... so interesting, open-minded and cosmopolitan.
Too bad I didn´t know of the existence of Liberty London at that time... a department store in the heart of the city. Or should I say it was good for my student economy not to spend hundred of pounds in beautiful fabrics and delicate home decor items :)
Now, Liberty is selling PRINTS! I think "how expensive can a poster be?". I really don´t want to know, I don´t need to know, but if one day I stop in London, I´m sure will buy 1 or 2... and a few meters of fabrics... and a tea cup. 
Bye bye, money.

ps: the "I LIKE IT WHAT IS IT?" got me thinking... were they inspired by me? :)

I LOOOOOVE sweets! 
it shows, uh?
Yesterday I found a pattern to make sweet cupcakes, and couldn´t stop crocheting since then! it took me a while, but it was completely worth it. I just need a nice place in my room to boast about this little and fluffy piece. OF CAKE!

Human vs. Machine

I always wanted to use my sewing machine more often, but I´m a bit clumsy and I don´t want to waste nice and expensive fabric :)
A good friend of mine was expecting a little girl, so instead of buying any impersonal boring item, I decided to do something myself. Never made any item for babies before, so I started with a pattern I found on the net... and here you have: my first BIB! :)

It was super easy to do, and I was so proud of myself that I made 6 in a day! I was sorry I didn´t buy more towel... I would definitely try to sell those! I must admit it´s a bit addictive haha...

Hope you like them! :)
