Hi everybody,
Nice to see that people are also reading my English blog!
If you like what you see, please leave a comment, or become a follower.
As you can see in my last blog, I was totally into making small dresses for little princesses.
I got a request for a dress with a little sleeve... and I liked the challenge!
At these pictures you can see I was struggling to get a nice sleeve, and a round neck (I put the fabric below to see how it would look like finished).

After a week, and a lot of starting over again, this was the result:

A pretty dress for a very pretty girl!
A detail of the edging:
And a small heart as decoration:

For now, I have decided to stop with the dresses, I want to make something a little bit easier, like a ripple blanket, or a granny stripe blanket.
Oh, and a few pillows maybe, and some potholders, and a poncho for the little lady...
As you can see, in my mind I am already creating new things!
Hope to hear from you!

Monday, March 25

As you could read in my blog the other week, I started making little dresses.
They are quite a handful, but the results are great!
Here a few other dresses I made last year:
For the dress I used tricot fabric, and again, my Mom did the sewing...
The back of the dress:

And a detailed picture:
The dress which follows, I already sold..*smile*...
Details from back and front:
I have to admit, crocheting the top of these dresses is a lot of work.
I had to start over and over again, looking at samples I had from other (shop-bought) dresses, and hoping the end-results are to my liking...
And yes, I am very happy with the results, but at the moment I don't have the courage to start on a new dress...

I forgot one picture, a detailed photo of the skirt, so you can see the pattern and also the great colours!

After a very busy period, without any crochet at all, I'm getting motivated more and more!
For our Little Lady I wanted to make a nice dress, and I started, without a pattern.
I used a mixed yarn, 100% cotton, and started with the top:

I have to say that the sewing is not my work, but my Mom's, thank you, Mom!
It took a lot of time and patience to figure out how to create this, and also start over and over again...
Only a top, and I like sets, so I started with a skirt, very easy, just increase the total of stitches in every row.
The result:

The end-result:
I Love It!
The colours, the pattern, it all worked out! 
I am so sorry I don't have any patterns for you, I could try in Dutch, but to explain this in English would be quite difficult for me.
If you would really want to have a pattern, email me, and I try in my best English...
Have a nice weekend!

Spring is in the air!
Well, not here at the moment, because it's still snowing outside, but I'm making sure our house is in Spring Mood!
Because of Easter, I chose soft colours, combined with yellow, and this is the result:
For the two round vases, I used a pattern of Lucy, from Attic24.
I have to confess, I love Lucy and her beautiful crochet patterns!
The pattern is easy to make, and you can chose all the colours you like.
The vases are from Ikea :).
The following is my favourite, because I love roses...
Only 2,5 weeks til Easter, I can't wait!
Have a nice day!

Oh my, I have been neglecting this blog a bit...
And I have to confess, I have been neglecting my crochet a bit...
For now I have to show you some pictures of a baby comforter (here is a small problem, Google Translate is not giving me the correct word for this....):
A blue one for a little baby boy, and of course a pink one for a baby girl!
They are very easy to make, and look so lovely!
I have a description how to make it, but sadly, it is in Dutch...
Next time I show some pictures of the little dresses I am working on!

Hi everybody,
It has been a while, but we have had a lovely holiday in Scotland, the Highlands!
We have been driving every day, and the wee one (21 months) loved the country, and especially the food (toast and cereal).
It has been a busy time, so I didn't have time for my crochet...
Here a few pictures from some more baby hats I made:
After the pictures of the first baby hats (see my first blog), I got some requests for other baby hats.
The first two are made for two sisters, the first one is a hat for a girl about 3 years old, the second for a girl of 1.
I made them with coton yarn, here in The Netherland we love to use coton for little ones.
This hat followed very quickly after:
A little hat for a newborn!
This is also made from coton.
I almost never use a pattern, I try and try and see if I like it ;).
Got to go now, I still have a lot of ironing to do after the holiday.
Bye for now!
