Floral Fantasy Valentine Heart by Cheri Mancini


Last year in february I found pictures of an awesome crochet heart on flickr and fell in love straight away. LaceCrochet designed them herself. I kept going back to her pictures to awww and ohhhh about the little beauties… I have to show them to you: Designed and crochet by Cheri Mancini

Aren´t they beautiful? <3<3<3<3<3

And then a few days ago I couldn´t beliebe my eyes… She wrote a pattern for them and uploaded it to http://www.ravelry.com/. And she offers the pattern for FREE. Yes, it´s unbelievable, isn´t it?

I was so happy and had to try it straight away. I never tried the bullion or roll stitch before so it was a bit difficult for me to make these. But with a little practice I´m getting better and made two little hearts that I can show you:

So if you want to give it a try and make these awesome little hearts for Valentines day here is a link to the free pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/floral-fantasy-valentine-heart

Thank you so much Cheri for sharing this pattern with us. I´m still absolutely in LOVE with it!!!

Liquid Soap Spitting Duck


A while ago my sister and her friend transported and set up a new TV for me and all the friend asked for is a crochet Liquid Soap Spitting Duck. He saw it at my sisters house because I made one for my nephew last May.

I found the pattern on Ravelry it´s called “duck-soap-or-lotion-pump-cover by Karen Zakaria”. She sells the pattern in her etsy shop and she has a blog where she shows her creations (http://balatong-balatong.blogspot.com/).

She made a lot of different variations of lotion toppers. For example penguins, a turkey, chickens and angry birds. They all look great and funny :).

Isn´t  it a great idea to crochet some of these lotion toppers and put them on the soap pumps at friends places. Not to tell anyone and just wait for the reactions. “LOL” I think that´s kind of funny…

To Paul: Sorry that it took so long… But your ducky is ready now and is waiting for you at my sisters house 🙂 and thanks again for your help.

This is the one I made for my nephew and she mentioned it in her blog: http://balatong-balatong.blogspot.com/2011/05/so-flattered.html
