Basic Crochet: Bookmark Crochet

Y'all. Crocheting is one of the things that actually keep me somewhat busy. I'm way too excited about this project. I don't know but every time I finished a new project, the feeling can be magical or I guess I just love crochets. This weekend I was able to make a Mandela crochet bookmark. Bookmark is so perfect for a book hoarder. A unique and classy bookmark. Isn't cute? They're easy. I love the design and colors. I hope this bookmark can add enjoyment for your reading session. So let's start and make your own.

FREE PATTERN: Butterfly Crochet

Waking up everyday is a gift. We are blessed to have and enjoy this splendid world. Appreciating every single things is dominant and I always see things beautiful in its own way. 
Sometimes it's nice to be like a butterfly. Enchanting, vibrant and free. God gives us enough strength to do what He wants us to do. Blossom like a butterfly

My love for crochet knows no time. It helps me in my heart's healing process. And as my heart wants peace, I made something cute and it made my heart smiled. Last night, I went out for walking and found one crafty shop and bought new yarns. These yarns are actually knitting yarns as per label. The texture is so good and thick. I also got it for a good deal. It is made in Taiwan.

Basic Crochet: As I say goodbye

October is here. How time flies. 2014 is starting to say goodbye. Goodbye is never easy. In every goodbye, you always say hello to a brighter side, new hope, new life and a new year. Goodbye will always leave us a lesson that will make us to be braver and stronger . I wanna be brave to face goodbye to the bad things in my life and will give me a lesson that I will never forget. Trusting stranger and opening your life to them is not easy...but because of love you will learn to embrace it. But love will never be enough to trust anyone. You have to invest time. They will hurt you the least you expect it. They will trade you to somebody and dump you like nothing. Love is the most wonderful moment that will come your way and at the same time will tear you up pieces by pieces. In order to be whole and happy again you have to say goodbye to all the people who've hurt and leave you hanging. My heart is crying and bleeding but life must go on. Have faith in God. They maybe happy to where they are now but life is never always on top.
So now I'm saving my heart. I want peace, forgiveness and love. I wanna be complete and go on with my life without the people whom I knew was my strength.... 
I wanna be as colorful and cheerful like a flower that is blooming so perfectly beautiful. I wanna be back to who I really am. A cheerful and at peace person. Yes, they've hurt me but if that is the only way for them to be happy, let them be. I am saying goodbye and erasing them in my life..

Free Pattern: Puff Stitch Baby Beanie

Hello World. Hello Hookers. Happy Monday everyone!!
Another crochet project on your way. This is my second crochet beanie. And I made it as a gift for my sister's bear (stuffed toy). This is so easy because it is mostly made of one stitch: the puff stitch. Puff stitch is named because it gently puffs up into an oval shape. It is gorgeous. HERE is a video by Sheruknittingcom on how to make a puff stitch . This will be my second project using a puff stitch and it is really fun and I'm into it. Haha.

Before the puff stitch. I made a band for the beanie. I used a 3mm steel hook and color grey light weight cotton yarn. The band was made of a Half Double Crochet. 10 HDC in each row. Total number of rows is 62 rows. I think it will be perfect if you have a length that can be multiply by 2. This beanie size is good for at least 12 to 24 months old. You can check Anne Granger's blog post HERE that had a chart for head sizes that is useful in crocheting a beanie. 

Basic Crochet: 5 Petals Flower Embellishment

I'm obsessed in making flowers that I can use as an embellishment for my bigger projects. Giving a try for a larger type of 5 petals flower crochet. Another simple project that can be done for only a minutes. See how simple it is. Imagine you have 1 hour doing this, I bet you have tons of it. Haha.

Crochet Pendants

Almost weekend hookers. I've been crocheting almost three-four months from now and been doing simple projects that every beginners can do. I am happy that every time I crochet I notice that I'm improving. Hopefully, I can do bigger projects in the future. I still need more time, learn and experience. But so far, I'm happy and blessed to be a hooker/crocheter.

Strap it on by using silver or gold chain lace or your choice. And experiment on colors. Don't forget to add more colors to look more fabulous. I made two sets of pendants. Hope you all like it.

Glass Cover Crochet

Chocolate is one of my happiness. I'm kinda Nutella lover. I usually used it as a glass. Since I don't have a makeup brush holder, I decided to used it. I don't want it to look dull and boring so I made a cover for it. Now, it looks so classy! I'm happy with the result. 

My last project was about scallop crochet. This one have similarities. As you can see, it has three rows that is similar as a scallop crochet. But this project had a little twist. I just design it by myself. It is so simple but fab. Wanna try it too?

Free Pattern: Crochet Bib Necklace

While thinking of what to crochet next, I remember a month ago I wanted to have my own crochet bib necklace. Actually I already tried it before but maybe because I am still learning to crochet it was not easy for me. So I tried it once again. Obviously I'm into jewelry crochets and ruffles so this necklace is so perfect for me. I used mustard color for my cotton yarn and 3mm hook. I find it easy to mix and match on clothes but still planning to crochet other colors.

This bib necklace has 3 layers. First layer: 33 chain stitches, second: 29 chain stitches and third: 25 chain stitches.
