Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!


Have a nice day with your loved one(s)!

I did some crochet for Valentine’s Day and some other DYI stuff. Have a look …

This candle jar has a cute heart string made out of thread no. 15. You can find the pattern here. It’s asy and very fast done. The edge is no crochet, it’s ribbon I bought at Zeeman.


Then I made this flower wreath. I found it complicated to pick colors I liked. Originally I wanted to use a lot more colors, yellow, orange and blue … But I’m quite satisfied with the way it came out. The heart wreath was only 99 c at Zeeman. I bought 4 new ones yesterday because I think it’s such a nice present and of course I want one for our own door. Here is my pattern for the little flowers.


Now these sachets contain chocolate lollies that melt in hot milk. I found the idea on a German Blog: zuckerimsalz


Greetings from sunny Dresden! ❤

This is a pansy brooch I recently made. I could have sewed the brooch needle onto the flower. But I found using the glue gun would be much easier.

The very detailed pattern for this cute flower can be found here.



Little Purse

Little Purse


On Friday I got this little bag from my mother with the task to cover it with crochet.

Here is what I came up with:


I used cotton and a 3 mm hook, crocheted twice a piece that covers one side. Then I took the hot glue gun and glued the upper parts to the bag. To finish I crocheted both sides together at the edge below .

Finally I found a way to create the hippie flower I had in my head. I hope you like it and summer comes back here soon. Sun is very rare these days and temperatures don’t exceed 20°C.
