Little Things

Hello, friends!

Here are some pictures of little things I've been crocheting lately :-)

An amigurumi mouse. His name is Emile.

Headbands, made using the double base chain stitch.

Sample of crocheted ric-rac.

Amigurumi Pi plushy. He looks blue in the picture, but he's actually purple.

Little motifs. The patterns for them were in the Reader's Digest, Complete Guide to Needlework book. The square is called "Hawaiian square", and is made using the pineapple stitch. The circle is called "Wagon wheel".

Happy Thursday!

Сумка {Tote Bag}

Over a month ago, I decided to make a tote bag to keep all of my crochet projects in. I kept thinking about how delicious it would look, with the yarn and hooks poking out of the top :-)
I found a pattern for a square in the Reader's Digest, Complete Guide to Needlework that is a little like a granny square, yet a little different.

I made twelve of each color square. Don't they make a beautiful pile? :-)

After I made all the squares, I laid them out on the floor in the pattern they would be on when the tote was finished.

Joining the squares together... After that I attached the handles, then made the border.

I love poking my head inside, and looking at all the colors :-)

Happy Monday!
