Well if this isn’t the weirdest idea yet.

I’m not sure how moose like they are, but the colors are certainly Swedish.

African Flower Bag in Salamander Yarn – (Yes, another bag…)

I just love this yarn, which is so gorgeously shifting between green and purple.
The yarn is a little chunky, it’s called Duo and is made by Swedish Järbo yarn. This particular color is called Salamander Print.
I assembled the bag using large bamboo rings and added a flower with a little buckle – i think is is essential cause otherwise it risks being a little too open.

While browsing at a local thrift store I found this broken broach which I decided to recycle.

So – what’s with all the bags? I keep getting orders for them or finding people that I haven’t made one for yet. Same as the hats.

Call me the hatmaker!

Hello Kitty Hat with Bow – funny fact: Did you know Hello Kitty is not actually a cat. She is a girl, with very catlike features….

Various Crochet Hats

I’ve been experimenting with crochet hats for sone time now. Ever since it was decided that I needed to make  one for each one of my colleagues.
I haven’t used any particular patterns and therefore these are mostly for information.  Let me know if any of them deserve a proper written patern or tutorial.
