Car Baby Booties

A special baby is on the way! The little one will be born in December,  and we are expecting him on the same day in which my best friend (his auntie) was born!

I am really over excited, as I think becoming an auntie is going to chance my best friend's life! :)

So, to give him a nice welcoming to the world, I've made this tiny pair of crochet car baby booties! What do you think?

I thought that making a car appliqué would have been much harder than it turned out...and I was quite happy about it!

I am flirting with ideas of making a small amigurumi to go with the booties....but still need to put together a nice project idea...we'll see!

Hope you like the booties!

Cactus Amigurumi....Cotton or Wool?

Cacti Amigurumi are one of my favourites....they can be sweet decorations and they do not really ask you to take care of them...ehehhe...

I made my first ones in wool last winter...and you can find the link to them HERE.

Then, after working on a few crochet projects with cotton this summer,  I thought that it could give a nice touch to cacti!

So here I am, showing you my COTTON CACTI AMIGURUMI!!!

What do you think?

Are they better in cotton or wool?

Looking forward to hearing your comments!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend

Crochet Wrist Warmers

Since last year, my husband had been asking me for a pair of cashmere wrist warmers. He had seen a pair from one of his favourite designers but they were very we thought the handmade option could have made it!

It took me long to put myself to realize them as I was initially looking for a nice pattern, but I couldn't find much that was simple enough for him to like it! He just wanted it plain, in a soft cashmere wool and well-fitted to his arms, leaving space to wear it on some shirts eventually.

So I decided to get some cashmere black yarn and started building the pattern on him... and here is the final result!

I really like the idea of wrist warmers as a male accessory, and I think they look pretty cool on him.

I hope you like them!

Have a lovely evening
