New Bird

A new bird hatched out
ready to carry headphones
and other small items.

Look here and here for other versions.

Travel Helper

When travelling internationally
it is handy to have a wallet
to separate the different currencies
and documents.

I started by designing the flag pattern
and then crocheting two pieces.

 After attaching the zipper
and sewing the pieces together, 
I added tiny white beads.

My Apple Purse

I was in need of a new purse, too,
so I've made me an apple purse as well: 

Very handy to keep the small change in!

Purple Shawl

It took a while to finish this shawl
as I had only bought one ball of purple yarn
in a far-far-away shop while on holidays.

Since 100g of yarn was not enough for making a decent sized triangle
and after noticing this too late
I ordered additional yarn online and got sent the wrong colour (arghh).
After returning it and finally getting the correct yarn
I managed to dive back into the pattern
and finish the shawl rather quickly. 

I normally don't use patterns
but this one was fun to follow
and I'm pleased with the result.

Green Market Bag with Apple Purse

Happy New Year !!!

A new shopping bag
with a matching purse 
in an apple design. 

Getting the zipper in between the two layers
was easier than expected:
