Pocket Full of Posies Pouch

Remember my Flower Trails Fingerless Gloves?  Well this project is made using the left over single skein I had.  I love making the puff flower stitch with this yarn, so I’ve used it again here – so this is a matching item if you like to match your purse and gloves! I think I’ll be…

Simple Flower Trails Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern by makemydaycreative.com

Flower Trails Fingerless Gloves

I’m very blessed to have a husband who remembers our wedding anniversary.  If it wasn’t for him reminding me I think I’d forget every year!  This year is 7 years for us.  A great year because traditionally the gift given is wool… and this is what he chose for me! A lovely textured alpaca yarn…

Puffy Flowers - A super quick and free cute crochet pattern

Puffy Flowers

I’d anticipated getting lots done these last 2 weeks.  Last year I made this Avalon top whilst watching Wimbledon.  Well this year I seem to have just watched Wimbledon and not made anything whilst doing so… whoops! Consequently I’ve had had a bit of a making frenzy and started about 6 projects in one go. …

Pretty Passion Flower Doily - free pattern in dk weight yarn

Passion Flower Doily

I managed to scare my husband a little with this project.  Along with most men he is doily averse.  As it grew I could see him eyeing it up and looking worried.  In fairness, there is plenty of crochet around the home already without me covering all available surfaces with doilies! This was actually made…

Crochet Flower with Hand Painted Card

Special Cards

If you’ve liked me on facebook you may have seen my latest project in progress. It is lace weight yarn, which I haven’t worked with before so it is taking me a while. I’m excited to get it finished though! (Even if it is another distraction from my blanket). In the meantime, here are a…

Waterlily 057

Water Lily

It was bound to happen.  I bought this yarn for the blanket I’m working on – but of course I got distracted. I’ve been looking for a good water lily pattern for a while, and whilst I’ve seen a few most of them require sewing several layers together.  Also, most water lilies I have seen…

My Avalon top

My Avalon Top

As I mentioned last week I am currently working on a crochet blanket.  It is taking a while because it is so large… and also because I get bored quite easily!  I am the kind of person who likes to finish what I’ve started rather than put things down and start a new project, but…

Dollar Purses

Dollar Size Purses

If you like the metallic clutch bag I use as my profile picture, these little purses are similar.  These were made specifically to fit US dollars, gifts for my friend’s girls who recently emigrated stateside. I love how a simple flower can pretty up these items.  These purses are dead easy to make, so perfect…

Pretty Card 3

Pretty Card

What a week.  Started off with a cold but I recovered just in time for my birthday – I had a pancake party!  So not much time for being crafty between the sniffles and cleaning up sticky pancake batter (yes, it got everywhere)! It was also my sister-in-laws birthday this week so I did manage…
