"Beauty of handmade lies in their imperfections, anything perfect is machine-made"
I don't post often my own projects, original ones usually are so perfect that I almost fell guilty posting my results instead of what the owner of the project does.
But this time I am so happy with the result, I really proudly feel it's time to stop being shy.
Let me introduce you to my lovely, new born in times of lockdown, wall mandala:
A lovely 60 cm diameter hula hoop + t-shirt cotton yarn = total cost less than 5 eur and such a lovely result. Fast and easy, I followed the instructions and pattern of this Serenity Mandala Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern by Kristin Omdahl and it went on really fast!
You want an easy project, that gives fast results and will look perfect in your home? This is definitely the one for you!
Have a lovely day crocheting.
Dear Crochet Maniacs it's me again! The crazy one looking for autumn in the end of August! :)
I couldn't resist to post this lovely pumpkin beanie FREE crochet pattern, which just became the number one in the list of the next to do projects.
Easy to make, with detailed step by step instructions will be perfect also for beginner Maniacs.
Just follow the link below and have a lovely day crocheting!
If you are looking for a simple "therapeutic" project to start the autumn with calm, this is the post for you!
It was like founding it and immediately falling in love with it; I already talked in previous posts on how crochet can help you relieve stress while, in the meantime, you also create something beautiful... and this project it's perfect with its simplicity, you basically have to repeat a lovely and easy crochet macaron stitch... until you reach the number of "yoyos" you need to complete the size you have in mind.
But let me get back on track hehe. You will fall in love with this backpack, one thing I wanted to try is also to adapt it maybe using cotton yarn or even better old t-shirts, what do you think? Feel free always to share with us your doubts, thoughts and why not, show us your work!
Happy day crocheting!
Dear crochet maniacs,
today's project has something really special, I can say I have the honor to publish one of my mother projects.
You have to know that my passion from crochet comes from my mother, she is the best crochetter I know and since I have memory she made beatiful projects come true one after the other. She really is an artist, the one that can crochet, knit, make dolls, design clothes and even paint! I know you will think that it's my mother and it's kind of normal that I KNOW she is the best one (hehe) but seriously, I can probably make a blog only with her projects and going on for a looooooot of time.
She lives in Italy and some months ago she sent me a beautiful dress that came together with matching crochet earrings done by herself.
The result with the pearls it's really elegant and perfect for these late summer evenings.
