Birdies Duo Tops and Hat

This duo tops sewing project was started first with sewing the reversible hat. The hat pattern is from Oliver S free pattern… This was the first time I used ready pattern instead of the one drafted by myself. When the hat was finished came the idea of making tops that incorporate both fabric so that they can be worn with the hat. So here they are, Birdies Duo Tops plus Hat. This was also my first time making top, the clothing projects I made for my little one prior to this were dresses.

Crochet Baby Cloche – DIY

Happy New Year 2013!

In the last 2 days of last year finally I was able to check one of my 2012 resolution which is crocheting. It all began when I saw so many pins in pinterest about crochet projects… so cute and adorable, I wished I had somebody to teach me how to do it… well Mr. Google came to help.

Here is my second project, made it yesterday, took about 3 hours. Click here for the link to the pattern.

I can see crocheting is one of the way to meditate, saying prayer and wish in doing the stitches is really calming and relaxing, specially prayer for the person to whom this project is dedicated 🙂

Baby cloche

My CH, SC, DC, HDC, TC, SlTc practice. I bought the yarn months before during sale for $1, at that time I didn’t know that certain size of yarn needs certain hook and what material works best for what project, I just picked whatever available on sale.
