Hearts Round-Up

I’m continuing to update my archive of patterns with pdf downloadables.  This time around I’ve focussed on my heart containing patterns – just in time for Valentine’s day!

Butterfly cards, heart strings gift wrapping, Shamballa bracelets, Crochet Water Lily and Crochet Shells and Lace Jar Cover

Butterflies, hearts, and bracelets

I’m a lucky girl – this week I got to kick my heels up at two different birthday celebrations. Two cards and two presents were needed, so I had fun rustling up these gifts. (You can find the pattern for my water lily here and for my shells and lace crochet jar cover here) I…

Beaded bracelet- inspired by Indian henna art

Beaded Bracelet Ring

I don’t know about you, but I really love Indian henna art.  I’ve never had it done because of how long it lasts.  The other day it just occurred to me that I could crochet a bracelet with a similar effect – and this way it is non-permanent and I can put it back on…

Chevron Stripe Bracelet

I saw a necklace that used this construction method (which is knitted rather than crocheted) and wondered if I could make something similar using crochet.…

Shamballa Bracelets

Update: Find how to make these bracelets here! I realise I haven’t posted anything new for a few days.  It’s not because I’ve been slacking, it’s just because I have started on two projects, both of which are going to take a bit longer to complete due to the size or lack of all the…

Plaiting Beaded Bracelet Tutorial

I’ve been asked how to plait this bracelet (pattern here) once it has been finished with the strands all straight.  This is a lot easier to explain using pictures, so here’s how I did it: You can repeat this process to make more plaits but you will need to alternate this method with the mirror…

Beaded Crochet Bracelet

I saw a bracelet similar to this and wondered if I could make my own pattern for one.  Well it took a couple of attempts but overall it came out ok, and you can find the pattern here if you want to make your own.  I think this will be going in my gift box…
