Chandelier necklace

Since we are leaving Thailand soon, I didn't want to start on a big project. But I didn't want to just not make anything either. So, when I found B.Hooked Crochet's April CAL I knew it was just the thing for me.

Brittany made a lengthy tutorial on how to crochet a necklace, that has a very complicated looking chart. I didn't have to watch the video, because luckily I'm comfortable with charts, but if you are a beginner crocheter I can only recommend you try your hands in this one. Not only will you have a beautiful necklace as a result, but you will find out that not everything is as complicated as it might seem at first glance.

You can find the FREE tutorial and chart here.

Baby dresses

Last month I made two little outfits for the tiny princess in your life. Both patterns are Rebecca Leigh's elegant designs. I had loads of fun figuring out the details and the kind of personality I wanted to give each of the them.

The avocado green dress has a white and yellow butterfly on its bodice crocheted with pearl cotton crochet thread. While the one with the rose skirt has a cute pink hedgehog on its bodice. They both have ribbons that compliment the colors of the skirts.

They are very special to me, because these two dresses are the first items to debut my Etsy shop: Sunny Edge.
