Backpack and sacks – denim re-purposing ideas

Hello,
For the Summer I made a backpack for myself, and sacks for both my daughter and me.
Take these pictures as denim re-purposing inspirations.

I’m not a professional sewer and I have very little sewing skills, all from Youtube only. I wouldn’t dare to write instructions of how to make those items. You can see you don’t really need much to make nice fashionable sacks. Just a bit of dedication, few pairs of interesting jeans and some stickers, bubbles or buttons you find at home. I got most of the material in local charity stores – all for less than 10 pounds.
My only enemy was the time – I did “waste” quite bit of time thinking and preparing how to do it. But I’m not sorry; the bags came out excellent. We are using them a lot; perfect for holidays or school and nobody else has got the same one. 


Have a nice day
Clara

Circular vest– free chart and basic instructions

Hello,

The Summer time pasted really quickly and I was unbelievably busy. So busy, that I was neglecting my blog a little, which I can only apologize for. I wasn’t lazing around and I crocheted and sewed a few items.




I custom made another “Circular vest”. This vest is very versatile; you can wear it all year around. I wore this vest while I was pregnant as well. 
The size is rather universal and fits most of the body shapes and sizes, or you can adjust the size by changing the size of the hook and/or material. You can use any material which suites your purposes.
This vest can be worn with jeans as well as with a more formal outfit.

Unfortunately I don’t have the written instruction for the vest but you can find a free chart and basic instruction here:

Summer poncho– full written pattern, charts

Hello,
Summer is here. For this time of the year I have made a pattern for a light, soft poncho with a border. You can wear it with jeans as well as with a more formal outfit.

The pattern is made to fit most sizes. The front with the edging is measuring cca 75cm (30”), the arm with the edging is cca 55cm (22”). One square measures cca 12 x 12cm (4,8’’ x 4,8’’).

For this poncho I used cca 250g of soft baby acrylic yarn suitable for 3mm hook, where 50grams = 330meters of yarn. You can use any material which suites your purposes.

It is crocheted by joining flower motives together; the drawing of how to connect the squares is part of the pattern.
There are many pictures and charts plus a drawing to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern. I do believe this pattern is suitable for a dedicated beginner as well.

You can use the basic square pattern to make scarves or any other garments.

I am providing the pattern for this Summer Poncho top for symbolic price only, and you can find it here:

Summer Pineapple Square top– full written pattern and charts

Hello,

Summer is coming very fast again and I think there are never enough pineapple tops.
I made pattern for a very nice Summer pineapple square top.
For this top, size M, with sleeves (you can make it sleeveless as well) I used 400g of soft baby acrylic yarn suitable for G/4mm hook.
The choice of the material is up to you. I suggest you make one square, check the size, use smaller or bigger hook to achieve cca 12 x 12cm (4,8’’ x 4,8’’) square. You can make the top smaller or bigger by using different size of the hook.
The tops back and front are crocheted by joining flower motives. The sleeves are crocheted in rounds.


There are many pictures and few charts to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern. I do believe this pattern is suitable for a dedicated beginner as well.

Pineapple earrings with beads– full written pattern

Hello,
Today I would like to share with you a pattern for beautiful pineapple earrings.
Although I love to, I’m not usually wearing longer earrings. With these earrings I did make an exception. I made them in three colors and I’m wearing them as well.



They are very easy and fast to make – a one evening project.
The size of the earring is dependent very much on the size of the hook and the material you will be using. I worked with Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet (size 10) cotton, but any material which suites your purpose is just fine. I added a few beads to make the earrings look even more interesting, but the beads are optional.
 

There are pictures to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern for these earrings.
I’m also confident that this written pattern is suitable for a dedicated beginner as well.

I am providing the pattern for a very symbolic price only, and you can find it here:

Pineapple square motive – full written pattern, chart

Hello,
Today I would like to share with you a pattern for an unusual pineapple square motive. The square has got a very multi-purpose use. I’m definitely going to use it to make some kind of top in future.
The motive can be part of a blanket, or any kind of top, even a purse. You can use any type of material you desire, and will suite your purposes. The size of the final square depends very much on the size of hook you will use.
I suggest to you, to make one square as a sample and take measurements before you are going to start any future project.

There are pictures to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern for this square motive. I have added a chart as well. It may even be helpful with learning to read the charts.
I’m also confident that this written pattern is suitable for a dedicated beginner as well.

I am providing the pattern for this motive for a very symbolic price only, and you can find it here:
