Tulle Head Piece

Ever since I decided to start shooting glamour photography, I’ve been inspired to do new things. I’m crafty to begin with but this might be my first non crochet related creation. After watching Sue Bryce and her amazing head pieces, I decided to give it a go and this is what I came up with.


Here it is being used.


And of course I had to make a matching tutu skirt :)


It was my first time trying so I didn’t document it. After posting it on the group and having someone ask me how I did it, I decided to make another one.  DSC_0573

Of course, once I got the hang of it, I needed to try other things and this is the other one :) So below are the directions to make one of these head pieces.


Tulle color of choice ( I used beige) give or take 5 yards
Flower bud or bloom
Glue gun
Needle & Thread
Large Berrette

Cut a big circle, about CD size. Cut about four strips of tulle and tie one end. Place a dab of glue on the center of the circle, then place the knot on top of it. Twist the tulle as you go on a circular motion, adding little dabs of glue to hold it in place.


Once you have completed the circle, put the end at the back of the circle and glue it.

Grab about two yards of tulle and fold it in half. In a cascading effect, fold them in layers.


Pinch the center and sew it.



Once you have sewn it, add enough glue to the center. Add the fabric leaves so there’s one on each side(Add the plastic leaves if you have them)


Now place the rosette on top of the leaves leaving room so it’s not covering them. Place flower bud just above the tulle rosette. Then add the butterfly on top of the rosette(optional)DSC_0567

Cut a piece of felt the same size as the berrette and glue it. Once glue has dried, place a good amount of glue on the berrette and place it on the rosette.



And you’re done! Let me know if you get to make any of these. The sky is the limit. Let your imagination fly!

Have you heard of the “Crocheting Blues”

Hello all!!

Have you ever heard of the “Crocheting Blues”? No? Are you sure??? I think you have! It’s that period (short, long and OMG what am I going to do?) of time when you’re in a crochet block and no, not those kinds of blocks!!
I had the “Crocheting Blues” the other day for like TWO days straight! Can you believe it? Two days without touching my hooks and yarn! That was not fun at all. But I just couldn’t bring myself to make anything. For some reason, my inspiration just went poof and left me :(.

Thank God for Pinterest! It only took me a couple of hours to restore it to its original place and voilà! I picked up my yarn and hook and started crocheting again. I actually came up with a series of new patterns that I’m sure you’ll enjoy.There are still in the developing phases so no photos yet. 

After curing myself of the blues, this is what I did =0) My first fingerless gloves and a hat to match them! Let me know what you think.


Tips for getting rid of the “Crocheting Blues”:

#1 Take a step back. Sometimes too much yarn (GASP) can be overwhelming and you just need to put the hook and yarn down.

#2 If that doesn’t work, take a walk outside even if it’s for just five minutes. The fresh air will clear your head from all the yarn webs and allow new ideas to flow.

#3 Pinterest! Pinterest! Pinterest! When all else fails, Pinterest! You’ll find that browsing through it will let your creativity resurface and you’ll create gorgeous new projects!!

There you have it! Getting rid of the “Crocheting Blues” when they creep up on you without notice!

Would you know what to do when it happens to you?

It’s when you have all these gorgeous balls of yarn, your favorite hook and pattern yet you don’t know what to crochet or simply don’t feel like crocheting. It’s all coming back to you now, isn’t it?

Live. Love. Laugh. Crochet.

Project of the Week: Diamond Trellis

Hey there!

Since I’m relaunching my site, I’ve been thinking about ways to make it fun, informational, inspiring and well, yarny 😀 I’ve decided that I’ll be doing a stitch of the week post for all of you to try and make something new.

I’m always looking forward to learning new stitches. So, looking at my favorite inspirational site, Pinterest, I found this pretty cool stitch called Diamond Trellis. The cool thing about it, is that Make My Day Creative has written AND video tutorial on how to make it. Pretty neat, huh?


I will definitely be trying this stitch and see what I can come up with. If you do anything with it, make sure to leave me a message and a pic.

Stay tuned for next week’s stitch.

Ooops…Look what happened!

Hey there!

Have you ever grabbed your yarn and hook with the intention of making…I don’t know, coasters. But THEN as you crochet around you realize that the stitches you are using would look awesome on anything other than a coaster?

Well, that’s what happened to me. I intended to make coasters for the beautiful flower vases hubby had gotten me. As I tried a stitch I’ve been playing around with, I decided to make the coaster into a hat.


The stitch pattern was looking really nice so I didn’t want to “waste” it on a coaster, lol. As my mind was now racing with this new pattern idea, my fingers were working faster to see how this unintended hat was going to look like.


Needless to say that I was very pleased with my final product! Now my only concern was how to actually write a pattern that people would be able to follow :/ If you’re anything like me, I get all these crazy ideas of patterns that sound so cool in my head. But when it comes to putting them on paper? Well, let’s just say that more often than not they don’t exactly translate the same.

I did end up making those coasters though. I figured I owed it to my flowers to have something pretty to sit on 😉


In conclusion, not everything you intend to crochet works out. However, when we let our imagination go, amazing things happen.

Happy hooking!

Baby It’s Cold Outside


For the first time ever I made boot cuffs and a neck warmer. It was really fun making these and I think for next winter that’d be my new obsession 😉

Some of them are available for purchase, others are in the process of being written and tested and others are just me coming up with ideas and no time to put them on paper :/
