Ronny the Rooster Barnyard Congrats Card

I rarely do birthday congratulation cards but it does happen every once in a while. I always use scrap materials and try to make it match. Anyways, a swedish barnyard is usually classic red.

Open the doors and see the giant rooster guarding the cupcakes.

Open the card to read the congratulatory message. Turned out quite funny in my opinion.

Upcycled Shirt Baby Dress

I’ve tried making dresses out of shirts before but honestly I am still very new to proper textile work.

image

image

I used collar part and a piece with buttonholes from the front of the husbands retired shirt for the upper part of the dress. The bottom part of the shirt was used for the skirt part of the dress. It’s a little big for A.

image

I could have made it smaller but she’s a growing little thing.

image

The sleeves were used got straps I added buttons to make it variable in size.

image

Around i added a flower lace with little pearls.

Crochet Watermelon Tunic & Sunhat with Seeds

We’ve had a sunny few days and little miss A keeps throwing away her hats when you least expect it.

image

Currently my focus has been crocheting fruit themed things and using sctapyarn for various things but this one I wanted to get right.

It’s “Carolina” yarn which is easily worked and coconut shell buttons.

A never stays still for more than a millisecond thus the pictures are kind of blurry.

Lemon/Lime Baby Blanket with Border

I found a pattern for lemon and lime slices which were simple to make although they generated massive amounts of ends to weave in. They could be pot holders or coasters as other tutorials suggest. Great tutorial for the pot holder and crochet part of the fruitslice can be found here.

image

Using a basic square I managed to put them together into a blanket!
It’s not very big but perfect for the pram and its also quite warm.

For a girl it would be cool to use a watermelon theme. Yellow/green being fairly neutral. The border is quite similar to one found on this great sitethat has over 1400 free crochet diagrams.

Sushi Look-A-Like Dessert

This is a trial bake. In sweden the celebration of midsummer is hugh and i am in charge of desserts in my family. Well, I hijaked the category anyways. Hence i am now trying out some ideas. This is one.

It is a stanced out three layer spongecake with banana and chocolate mousse on the inside. Whipped cream with coconut shavings on top, wrapped with marzipan and with a marzipan shrimp on top. The marzipan could be replaced by sugarpaste or similar.
