Mini Bag

rIt has been awhile that I’m thinking to make a crochet bag. Today I managed to make a mini bag with my left over yarn stash from Japan which are a bit thicker than I normally use in all of my previous post. Here’s my mini bag (roughly 22(w)x18(h)x 6(d)cm in size) that I’ve crochet for roughly 2 hours:

In progress. Just finished the base. The challenge is to complete this mini bag with only one big ball of navy blue yarn. With a bit of other colours, I managed to use one whole ball.
Navy blue with baby blue strip mini bag. It does look like a mini shopping bag :p.
Fits just nice for my purse & handphone 🙂 
I hope to make a bigger one, maybe a sling bag or something later when I have the chance to restock my yarns.

Simple String Headband

After one & another, based on Marta’s creations, I’ve tried to make a string headband with a slight different from hers.
The same stitches as the previous post simply string necklace but slightly longer version to fit my head. Actually the string headband can also be use as a necklace too & vice versa. Here’s the string headband:
 

 The rose pink string headband.
I combined four crochet string, make a button loop & sew a button to fasten.
 It can also be a longer version string necklace compare to the first one that I’ve made 🙂
What do you think about this one?

Simple String Necklace

Inspired by Marta’s Creative Yarn again I made my own string necklace. Marta’s shared the pattern to everyone (She’s nice) but I still can’t really understand the crochet terms. So I just made it up myself. Struggled a bit on how to end the necklace but somehow managed to complete the necklace. So here’s my new necklace!

Tadaaaa!! My new brown string necklace with a nice button to fasten it 🙂

Crochet Bow

Everyone loves ribbons or bow. So I tried to google on how to crochet ribbon or bow  & found out a great blog on crochet. Marta is from Italy & she’s a very nice person where she like to share her great crochet & knitting to everyone. Her blog name is CreativeYarn. Her work inspires me a lot on my creations. Thanks Marta!

Some of her creations which are the necktie with a bow & headband with bow are so cool. So I try to make one myself with different stitches of my own as I can’t really understand the crochet language :p. So here they are:

My first bow!Not that neat but I think the 2nd & 3rd one are much better. 
The black crochet necktie with a red bow.
 The black headband with a green bow.
Voila!My new creations inspired by Marta 🙂

Dizzy Swirly Swirl!

I took a challenge to make a swirl pattern using 2 different colour yarn. Without following any swirl patterns out there, I just start crochet the swirl using my imagination. Managed to create a cool 8.5cm diameter round swirl!

 Crochet the side with black yarn to make it nicer. It turns out to be a nice mug coaster!:p

Paper Star Ornament

This week Syara was busy making paper craft ornament for her best friend’s bridal shower party. She is into paper craft since in Japan. Me (like origami) & Amal (paper craft lover too) was excited to help her on the ideas & making some ornaments for her. She found one tutorial online on making a star ornament by combining 6 folded papers (sorry didn’t know the website, maybe I’ll ask next week). I helped her to make one, a larger one compare to another two that she had made. Here’s the result:

 After combining all 6 folded paper with 3 different colours.
After finished folding the sides, the nice 3D star ornament is completed. I love it! 🙂

New F’dyHana! – Chrysanths, Sunflower & PomPomflower

I designed these new F’dyHana for quite sometime. Finally I managed to finished them.
First is Chrysanths short for Chrysanthemum, which I put a small crocheted button in the middle of the curl up petals. Second is the Sunflower, which I crochet with short petals & finished it with a bigger crocheted button in the middle. Third is the PomPomflower I’ve designed it when I tried to make some pompoms for fun.
So here they are all new 3 types:

I think they are cute. What about you? 
More various application to come with my F’dyHana soon 🙂
