Mandalas

Hello lovely crafters! I'm getting back to crochet. Had been hard to do since the hand accident from 2014, but I've missed it so much!

 I made an african flower potholder.

 As I was working on the backside, was intrigued about the new fashion of making freeformed crocheted mandalas.


I came up with a placemat and a coaster, a birthday present for my yoga instructor. She was very pleased with it. So I was!




I took the picture of the wrong side lol



Have a crafty week!

Necklaces and circles


Hi there! I have been experimenting with the sewing machine. Using the flower stitch foot, made a bunch of denim charms, which were completed as necklaces (adjustable sliding knots are the best the for a customizable lenght ).


Love the flowers, they are like little mandalas.




By the way, mine is not from Singer, sadly those are way too expensive, got it at eBay instead, for $4!!! It works perfectly. I'm so happy with it that all I want to do now is circles lol While I can get my hands on a circle stitch attachment, made a simple DIY  version, not perfect, but it works.




Happy weekend!!!
