Cosmetic Pouch- DIY crochet & sewing

I made this crochet after seeing Martha Stewart project, crocheting pencil case… I have done sewing pencil cases but never with crochet, so I like this idea very much., only this time I made it for cosmetic pouch. The inspiration for the houses applique is from the oldtown Tallin, Estonia, I visited last september… Such a charming historical site. I also added the picture of the oldtown below, so let me know what do you think … Can you see the houses there in my applique? 🙂

Hope this brings you inspiration too !

Remember my previous post Cupcake applique ? Here is the link https://sweetsourmoments.com/2014/03/14/crochet-cupcake-applique/ …. This is the same shirt only in different color.  For this one I used the combination of fabric and crochet.

My husband said it’s guava when I asked him what it looked like 😦 …. Hopefully you can see it as a pear.

Crochet Rosette Brooch- DIY

I have seen many pretty and cute crochet flower tutorial and patterns in internet. They all look great for brooch, but this one is my favorite, so elegant and perfect for my brooch project. I found the pattern in Ravelry.com by Daniela Herbertz. With some accessory pearls and beads, make it more custom look and feel fancy.
