Best of 2015

I made too much to pick nine favorites of 2015... but I did and I'm definitely proud on these lovely crocheted items.

I wish you a happy new 2016, with a lot of happiness and creativity!

Finally I can show off my Tilda. Actually I made two of her. This one is the birthday present for my mother in law. She is one of my biggest fans and often supports me with lovely fabrics, buttons, beads, and edges. So she really deserved this one. She really likes the sewn version of Tilda, so that's why I decided to make a special crocheted version of Tilda.

Tilda is made of Phidal cotton 3 and about 45 cm tall. The dress is (of course) made of Tilda fabric. The hair of Tilda is often more decently, however I preferred the cute doll with a messy tail. That's more JoyJonne. Do you want to make a Tilda as well? You can find the pattern here.

Have a nice day!

Fat lady in bikini

With this blog title I will receive a lot of new viewers I think ;)


Anyways... It was for ages on my list to crochet a fat lady, but I didn't find the right moment yet. A few weeks ago (somewhere in November) I thought about the busy December month and all the birthdays. And than suddenly I though "Let's make a fat lady and it will be a great birthday gift!" So I started crocheting and it took me a few evenings to crochet all the parts and half a day to sew everything together. Now I'm so happy to show my fat lady, I actually couldn't wait, but had to wait for the birthday. It was such a pleasure to crochet it. I especially like the hair, it's so lovely messy :).

The pattern is in Dutch from the book 'Dikke dames haken'

Have a nice weekend!
