New Pattern – Crochet Owl Purse With Feathers

Hi friends!

I am stopping by to introduce my newest crochet creation to you – it’s the Crochet Owl Purse With Feathers.

Oh, how much I love making those feathers, they are soooo much fun!

This pattern actually is a remake of one of my older patterns – the Crochet Owl Cushion. After I published the cushion pattern a few years ago, I received quite a few questions asking me if the cushion could be turned into a purse. I thought,’Yes, it can and what a lovely idea it is!’ Actually, I found the idea so lovely that I thought it definitely deserved its own tutorial with all the steps described in precise detail.

And here it is. The pattern for the Crochet Owl Purse has more than 70 pictures making it really easy to follow.

If you’d like to learn more details about the project, you can find them HERE or HERE.

And have I already mentioned it’s a lot of fun? :)

Yes, I could not stop and made three versions. Don’t they make sweet summer bags?

Happy crocheting!

Enjoying…

Hi friends!

Are you enjoying the early summer days? I hope you are.

I feel that the beautiful warm weather is just inviting me to go out every day and take delight in everything around me. The sun, the air, the trees… So, as a result, my little Mr. P and I love going out for a short stroll and when he falls asleep in his pushchair, I grab my crochet project and do some hooking. Sweet, sweet, sweet. These days I am indulging in my favorite crocodile stitch again. Actually, I took one of my old patterns and am giving it a new look and a new way of use. Cannot wait to show you more details. Soon!

Sending lots of summer hugs and kisses.

New Crochet Pattern – A Million Diamonds Blanket

After finishing this crocheted Million Diamonds Blanket I have to say that it is a pure love of mine.

I am completely and utterly smitten.

It was very enjoyable to make one colorful piece of diamond after another. So meditative. So much fun. As if a box of colorful jewels was being created right there in front of my eyes.

If you’d like to make a blanket like this as well, you can now find my take on this pattern in my shops here or here.

I decided to go for a smaller size because I can find a lot of use for it right now – a lap blanket, a baby blanket, perhaps a picnic blanket even… but whatever size you have in mind, I’d like to assure you that this pattern is extremely easy to adjust.

An Update

Mr P in the park

Hey friends! I hope you are doing fine.

I am stopping by to give you a little update on what’s been going on in our household lately.

As you might have noticed, we welcomed a new buddy in our family this March, our little Mr. P, the beloved and long awaited son.

We feel like the happiest people under the Sun right now.

Our days are filled with a lot of joy indeed. We cuddle, we take long walks and we have been to a few trips as well. As you can imagine, there are new duties too. But as one friend of mine advised, I am just taking it all in happily, no complaints.

A lot of you, dear readers, told me to enjoy every moment because the newborn days fly so incredibly fast. And I can definitely see that. With our little one being almost three months young now, I have already packed and stored his newborn clothes and just this morning I did the same with his 0-3 months ensemble (sniff, sniff).

So that much about Mr. P.

On the blog front, I have soooo many new ideas brewing in my head, drawn on papers or described in my notebook. Our little family is still in the process of finding our routines and I am trying to fill each window of free time with a little bit of creativity and crochet. Hopefully, we will soon find the pace that will allow me to post more. Well, I know we will. But I am not trying to push it.

I have a new crochet pattern that I started making before Mr. P arrived. It’s colorful and oh so cheerful. I am planning to add a few finishing touches to it and present it on the blog soon. If you are interested, stay tuned. I’ll be glad.

So…, I think that’s all about me and my current life. So little going on and so much going on all at the same time.

Thank you for letting me share! You are the best!!!

With lots of love,

Petra

P.S.: I would like to say a big THANK YOU for the sweet words you left in the comments of my last post and on Facebook. You are amazing!!! I might not have enough time to reply but I read every message and appreciate them a lot! :)
