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.




A link to the pattern for the hummingbird can be found here.

Crochet Brown African Flower Handbag with Clutch

It looks so good in rich classic brown. The design itself – I have used it before – is simple hexagon ×13, the handles are wooden circles painted black. Can be bought at



These bags are so much fun to make I could start a business, haha.

The clutch has a floral embellishment and this flower is made with venedig yarn. Picked a nice black button to match.



From the pics you can pretty much figure out how its made, colors of my life I think did a great tutorial before tjey decided to no longer be free for all.

This will make a great gift for some lucky lady.

Simply the Best
