Joyful Sunday

Hi everybody! I just made some more of the cute pompon brooches and I’d like to share it with you. Crafting along these pompons while listening to the beatiful album “Days to come” by Bonobo is a real Sunday joy. I hope you have a relaxed and creative day too. Have fun and happy moments!

Pompon Brooche

Hi everybody! Yesterday evening I made this pompon brooche with some leftover yarn in bright neon colours. Really, I like pompons so much. They remind me of my childhood, they feel fluffy and in my favourite colours they’re a total eye candy.

If you’d like to make one for yourself, here’s how:
– Make 3 small pompons and cut them in shape for a neat look.
– Tie the pompons together so that you have a small bouquet.
– Attach a brooche pin on the back.

It’s the easiest thing, isn’t it? I intend to wear it with a black outfit when I start my new job next week. Have fun and happy moments!



Happy Friday Craft

At present I really haven’t much free time for crafting along and blogging. I have some projects going on, that really absorb most of my time. I don’t want to complain – great things are going on. I just don’t have as much as free time as I’m used to and it will continue for some weeks.

Nevertheless, I wanted to show you, what I made today, because it’s Friday and as some of you may know, it’s my favourite crafting evening. Yay! I just made the quickest craft project ever. It really took just two minutes to bead these wooden beads for a bright summer bracelet. As you have noticed: My most loved colour-combo again. I just love it…

The bracelet is great. I will definetely make some more in other colours, also one all in red. Have fun and try it too!

Tassle earings

For sure you can’t have enough earings – so I just made some more this morning. Since the new Gatsby movie I see tassles all around. I thought about tassle earings for some time. Today it hit me with – of course – my favourite up to date colour combo orange- blue.

I found a very easy and perfect way to make the basic tassles on the blog of onesheepishgirl. Since you made the tassles you can just play around with it. I decided to start with thin cotton yarn in these bold colours, for I want it to match with a simple black dress of mine.

As soon as I finished it (it’s a quick about 30 minutes project) lots of more tassle ideas came to my mind. It’s a great way to vamp up a simple style. I guess I’ll try it with a shiny embroidery floss for a real Gatsby-style or something with an ombre look too. Just give it a try. It’s one of my favourite projects now!

Crochet flower earings

This is such a fun project – and finished in less than an hour! I always like to experiment with things that I could turn into earings (my favourite jewelery). Crochet flowers are perfect for summer and a kind of vintage feeling. I chose the flower-patterrn from Mollie Makes. It’s easy and you can adjust it to the size you need. I used a thin cotton yarn in bright colours. The red ones perfectly match with my new black and white dotted dress. Yay! To finish, I added pearls in the centre of the flowers, but other stuff as buttons etc. would turn out great too. Very much fun to everybody who will try this!
