Lord Ganesha/Fitting trial of cardigan(Updates)

I embroidered a ganesha for this vinayak chathurthi which took place last month end. To give a better look, i attached a felt material attached with the lining cloth. Hope this looks better now.

After – Lord Ganesh attached to a felted piece

Then, i wanted to try the cap sleeve cardigan made by me. Wanted to try on a 3 yr old kid who is my neighbor’s daughter. Want to check whether it actually fits/too small/ large etc. To my surprise, it fitted the small girl perfect except that it was little small as expected. hope it would be perfect on 2yrs!! hope to try much more hereafter!! here is the pic

Crocheted Eye Glass Case

Eye Glass case

I wanted to do a crocheted eye glass case for a while… I realised its importance when my old frame had its end… So, when my new frame came, immediately i started crocheting with my new yarn(Varadhman baby soft).. I tried first popcorn stitch… Attaching a pic of it, after seeing that, i felt i wanted to practise it more, so switched over to another stitch… And finally finished the glass case.. Next the matter of choice was for embellishment… Just got confused to what it can be.. First i did a rose with 2 leaves, since it did not work out, i did this small n cute flower like…. So happy on the end result… Do tell your feedback folks…. Thank you!!!

My Latest Mobile Pouch

The latest mobile pouch is of two colours… blue and DSC01186 light pink… with an embellishment!!!

This time i have tried/learnt a new concept of edging in crochet…

i have done edging with pink color… A simple chain/slip stitch edging…

Planning to gift this pouch.. Let’s see how it goes….

Even though it does not give a professional look, the feel of making one by ourselves gives an immense pleasure and satisfaction..

The right side pic is for the full view of my pouch… Happy that i have started exploring the world of crochet… Lots more to be learnt…  pouchHope you all like the pouch… Thank you 🙂
