Here is the Sunday mornings result:
This paper yarn is new at our local yarn shop. I had to try obviously. The paper stripe is thin, smooth and flexible, easy to work with, but pretty strong the same time, and it didnt break, regardless how strongly I pulled it. Actually I didnt try to break it… mistake, I will try how much power is needed to break it – good to know.
I checked Pinterest and Google for samples, and I couldnt find much about it, here are some examples:
It can be used as rafia, but much lighter and nicer to work with it. This is how I succeeded with my first project. I plan to buy one white ball too, to have a larger brim, for a nice stylish female sun hat.
Here is the Sunday mornings result:
I am running out of the basic stitches to make video tutorials of, so a bit more advanced crochet techniques are coming: puff and popcorn stitches. Obviously I had to make flowers out of them, and no doubt, the puff flower became the number one winner as my video crew concerns :)
I have made quite a few flowers, and been thinking what to make out of them… until this week my name sister – Mila Emese was born in Denmark, gorgeous daughter of my dear friends, Elvira and Kjeld, so the plan is forming, I need to make a baby blanket out of puff flowers… it will be super cute I am sure :)
The video tutorials will come out, just needs some editing… and yes, still translation to English. Now that is a challenge yet, but should be able to climb this too!!
I am volunteering at the Mályvavirág (Hibiscus) Foundation, which is supporting woman healing from cervical cancer. The foundation is still quite new, and cannot collect 1% donations from the annual tax.
So we had to come up with an idea, how to collect donation, and my idea was to make these badges - hibiscus badges - for donation, so the supporters can have something in return, and wear these sweeties proudly.
I am very happy to say, the plan worked very well, and the badges are making nice income month by month.
I was asked to make a video about how this flower is made, so we will record it on the tomorrow shooting ;)
Here are some of the previous ones:
This project is almost finishing, which means I can cut the final video for it. On the first shooting, I was teaching the treble crochet, and this sudden idea popped up, to make an easy granny square - using the just learned technique. This yarn is just amazing, aout of felt, hand dyed, having colours of the deep sea - and those who knows, I am a diving instructor, understands - this is very close to my heart!
The pachwork bad is assembled, now just the final touches are missing: the irich crochet rose, and the handlers. These will come on this Sunday shooting.
I am hesitating to carry on, and to put lining inside... it would be even more fun, but if so, must be later, because new projects are calling!
This is going to be still in Hungarian language, but very soon I am going to do the English translations for all my videos.
So hang in there!
Its spring time, just perfect to make some flowers!! ;)
Hello there! Here it comes my brand-new website! I am so excited!
I have been producing video tutorials to teach how to crochet the last months, and it looks like, the time has came for the next step - website!
We have been shooting the basic stitches, and some easy projects, you can do with this knowledge. Also I have made a little Easter basket, for the spring holiday, and I am proud to say, it was very popular :)
The videos at the moment are in Hungarian, but during the following weeks I am planning to translate them to English, I just need to find the right equipment for it – and the time of course. Meanwhile, I would say, have look anyways… the most important is what I do… not what I say ;)
These video shootings been great fun, and I am full of ideas and plans. I really would like to teach all the little tricks and tips, I learned by myself, which makes this fabulous handicraft much more easy and enjoyable.
I have to run now, been designing this website whole day, so see you soon, and don’t forget to
Keep on Crocheting, keep on having FUN!
Hello, my name is Emese.
