Come Say Hello!

On Sunday I will have a table set up with my crafts.

Come say hello and see my cute owls! <3

The Owl Bag

This was supposed to be a sleeping bag for a baby, but I don't have any babies in my life, so I made it into a purse.  I lined the inside with fabric and made a strap.  It turned out really nice!

The Elephant Parade

Yksi pieni elefantti marssi näin
aurinkoista tietä eteenpäin
Koska matka oli hauska niin
pyysi hän mukaan yhden toverin

The Smurf House

This is a combination of plastic canvas and crochet.  I donated this to Avoin Paja Inspis for the Käsityöfestäri.  I really must make another and get some Smurf figurines and take some photos of it outside in the forest! :)

Addicted To Yarn

We all have our guilty pleasures... mine is buying yarn.  I have yarn stashed all over the house.  I buy it when I have extra money.  I buy it when it's on sale.  I buy it when I need a pick-me-up.  Yarn makes me happy!  This is a picture of an a haul where I got 30% off the total and saved 40€!  

Video Game Crochet

My husband is into video games.  He and his friends have been collecting retro video games for a long time and recently had the chance to display some of their collection at The Vapriikki Museum in Tampere.  Over the years I have crocheted various characters. :)

Dragon Scale Wrist Warmers

For all you Game of Throne lovers out there.. Here are my Dragon scale wrist warmers.  Lots of time and effort goes into making these, but the outcome is so magnificent!
