GHHORIZONTAL tapestry crochet bag celebrates colour and joie de vivre in tribal geometric pattern.
African Butterfly Magic Hair Clip is alternatively known as double hair comb with elastic, butterfly clip, hairclip, double magic hair comb, double beaded hair comb, magic hair comb. If you have used a Butterfly Magic Hair Clip before you will fully appreciate how much better they are than just about any other hair clip. Butterfly Magic Hair Clip is very easy to use, very firm, and works whether you have a lot of hair or very little (like me). (See video at the end of post for how to use a butterfly magic hair clip).
They are super comfortable. You can even sleep with them and they don’t dig into your scalp or cause you to have pulled-scalp pains at the end of a day. This post is about how to make an African Butterfly Magic Hair Clip. Once I had tried my first Magic Hair Clip (thanks to Joy Belle, my wonderful mother in law), I was in love. And next, I had to find out how to make them myself.
This Drawstring Tapestry Crochet Bag is also a one-time, one of a kind design. This bag is crocheted with the super-intriguing Miracle Beads, aka Magic Beads. The ‘magic’ of these beads is that they will glow under natural light. So at the most unexpected, delightful occasion, your bag will seem to burst forth with an inner glow. Furthermore, they have the mesmerising illusion of a bead within a bead. This ‘magic’ has to be seen to fully appreciated.
This “Cat & Fishes” is one of my first tapestry crochet bag. This is a one-off, no repeat design. I drew and graphed the pattern, pulling from a number of sources of inspiration (see below). Unlike other tapestry crochet and also unlike Wayuu bags, this tapestry bag is done in the extremely strong and dense knit-sc stitch which produces the intriguing stockinette-looking stitch. I have included lots of metal bag hardware – coz’ they always look so good on a bag, don’t they?!!
Cat & Mouse Bag is a drawstring bag. It has been knitted with 100% wool and then felted. A medium sized bag with spacious capacity.
Summery Joys and Childhood Bliss! This bag is a bit of a child-like celebration of summer joys, going on train rides, having big smiles on the face, watching trains roll by and butterflies flutter.
The Moertel Fairy Purse is a quirky beaded picture crochet purse, inspired by the whimsical work of lampworker artist Melanie Moertel.
For a while there, I was into handmade felt cabochons (felt cabs for short). Then I got into making cute felt animals – like this felt owl brooch. His name is Oscar Oot. This is a rewrite about Oscar. I am moving platforms and need to do a lot of re-writes. But re-writing my very first little Oscar owl is not a chore as he still holds a warm place in my heart.
Oscar is the big brother in the Oot felt owl family. You can have a peek at his younger sister, Emily Oot – another felted owl.
