Aluminum Wire Tree with Crochet Greens

I wanted to make a tree out of aluminum wire (suddenly grabbed by pinterest-inspiration ) and I thought I’d give it some cartoon-style greenery rather than making a million tiny leaves.

Here is where I started out – aluminum wire, some scrap metal I had access to (a threaded rod, a bearing and beneath that a washer) + tools.

I shaped a tree with the wire and “borrowed” some nuts to attach the washer to the threaded rod and recruited some assistance in welding the bearing on as a support-weight.

I crochet an amusing amount of various size balls in different shades of green (completely randomly)

And finally stitched those together to fit on the branches, this took a little bit of improvising – but then again, the whole project was a little make-up-as-you-go-along =)

Temporarily located to a shelf in my kitchen =) – Cost of yarn <5$

Crochet Poker Hat

Crochet Hat for a poker player.  I decided to give him a full house. Though with the yarn at hand, it was not possible to do anything to extravagant.  I would have loved to make a king or a queen. Three aces and a couple of sevens will have to do ๐Ÿ˜‰

Crochet Rainbow Hat

Crochet rainbow hat with spike stitch to give it a little something extra. I am a sucker for rainbows.

Crochet BMW Hat with Wheels & Licence Plate

I started off with a basic blue hat yo which i added details. Luckily I had some scrap metallic silvery yarn left over from a previous project that was perfect for rims and front od the car.

Hillarious, can’t wait to see it on a person ๐Ÿ™‚

Hummingbird in a Flower Hat

There is an old asian tradition, to on a child’s first birthday let him or her choose between a flower and a coin. If the baby chooses the coin, he or she will have a good hand with money – be able to save, during his/her lifetime. If the baby chooses the flower, the baby will be happy, but not necessarily rich – focus on other things in life.

The woman, for whom I made this hat, would’ve definately chosen the flower. I added the blue hummingbird to give it a little extra.

Swedish Moose Hats with American Embellishments

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 Jรคrbo 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.
