Cuddlies

Image
Two of my colleagues got a baby this week. For both of the babies I made a little cuddly animal. Cat and Rabbit of course, because that are the only examples we have around my house.

Crochet Hibiscus

Image
One of my favourite flowers, that doesn't grow in my garden because the weather just isn't warm enough in the country I live in, is hibiscus. A couple of years ago I went to Hawaii and there are a lot of things I love about Hawaii, but hibiscus growing all around is certainly something to love!

I made a crochet version. By far not as good as the real ones, but nice enough to embellish my bathroom.

Crochet Unicorn

Image
My youngest daughter loves My Little Pony and especially the unicorns. Some time ago I found a great pattern, so I could make here one.

I found the pattern here.

Sweet Dreams

Image
Around Easter I made a bunny out of an old white blanket, but I had lots of blanket left. More than enough to make two Moon Pillows for the bedrooms of my daughters.

Crochet Watermelon

Image
Last week I shared a crochet pineapple, as one of the fruits I love when summer is coming. Only the fresh ones, of course. But my all time favorite is watermelon.

The combination watermelon, feta cheese and mint leaves makes the best summer salad in the world! Best winter salad, too, but in my corner of the world watermelon isn't widely available in wintertime. 

Both my favourites together.

Another lovely idea I found on Instagram, @kikalite:

Crochet Ice Cones Tutorial

Image
Both my daughters love ice cream and fortunately there's an ice cream bar just around the corner, where fresh ice cream is made the whole day through in every flavour you can imagine.

My own favorite is raspberry, but my daughters love melon and mango, so that's the flavours I made. If you want to make your own, here's a tutorial.
