two bags with applique and zipper

Hello, dear readers! it is  good  summer for you? 
Are you working on your craft? With crochet? with sewing? 

Now, last two days I have made two bags with two applique. 
They are for give away ... I can not say who will be the recipient! it's a secret!
I've discovered that I really like sewing a applique! 
Here for you two bags with appliques!


Yesterday after lunch while the girl slept I made these two applique. 
I enjoyed a few hours , really! great pleasure with needle and thread!


I also enjoy with drawing  in a cardstock the moon and the cloud. 
First I thought I could put eyes and mouth but I finally decided 
on a more pure and not so childish design...


I am happy with my appliques! I want to make t-shirts for my daughter! 
I can not wait! I looooooove to sew appliques!


And a pink zipper ....


And a yellow zipper ....


And my brand .... Sure!
my world of wool!!!


Again I going to  blog of  Cristina ( here )
for follow your tutorial. Thanks again, Cristina! 
The zippers are best than the first!
The two bags with applique measure 20x25 centimeters.


And on the 24th of July was the day of my Holy ....


And the man of the house give me this beautiful bouquet ... 
with these beautiful yellow color, right? 
I adore the natual flowers ... would never have a  artificial bouquet at home!
never... never... never...


And I go on a holiday with the family in early August ... 
I need a little rest and disconnect the blog .... Network Internnet ... 
the computer in general .... I need a few days of relaxation and family life ....

Wait for me! will return in September!

 And within a few days I will be an aunt again! 

Congratulations to all those who call Ana!

how to combining crochet and cardstock

Today I show you a craft that I loooooove! I loooooove it!
combine crochet and cardstock! 

These cards of crochet and cardstock measuring 10x10 cm. 
They are ideal to wish happy birthday, right?


I used once again the yarn brand  DMC , Natura Just Cotton, 
with similars colours that cardboards...


 Long time I did not use the alphabet tampons! 
You can put a phrase or many words you like! or a drawing ... 
or a picture ... There are many things to do!
 your imagination will be grow with this craft!


I have made a centimeter of space between the points, 
I've done it with a ruler and a wool needle. 
I think would better  use a different type punch tool but...
I do not have this size!


And you, you will be trying to do this craft? 
If you do several  and join  it can be converted into 
a beautiful garland of crochet and cardstock! 

Take advantage of the summer! 
enjoy creating! 

Thanks to you all for a walk  my world of wool!

combining fabric and crochet in dresses

One thing is sure: either I spend hours looking the blogs 
with fantastic works or I do more hours crocheting and sewing ... 
I like both but ...  if I do a one...  I can not do the second!!!

So a few days I have not been so attached to the machine and I have worked a little... 
maybe I'll have to make a schedule and look at internet only a few moments ... 
I do not know ...

I have made two dresses for Carlota with combining  fabric with crochet. 
I hope you like it! Come on!

 
This was the first time I sewed a dress ...
Perhaps this is not very symmetrical ...
the next was best...

And this crocheted dress was also the first thing I did ...
you will see what happened ...


Both dresses are made of 100% cotton. Fabric and yarn.
The yarn is DMC  brand and is a delight! 
light and very soft to the touch! Ideal for clothing! 
This time I have worked with 3mm crochet hook and I think like this is going very well.


First I did this job for a crochet dress, but as I'm so brave and determined, 
I did not take measurements and ... it turned out to be huge!!!
 but I was sorry to undo so much work ... 
and I decided to make another one but this time I have made some measurements ...


And I decide to put buttons so you can modify the dress size a little ... just in case!


Here's the before and after! 
I love these fabrics designs and the colors ...


You will have noticed the disaster??? 
You see what  difference in sizes!!!!!!
 The green is huge! huge! huuuuuuuuuuuuge!!!!


However this  crocheted fabric dress fits perfect! 
Today it has been premiered! 
And if for time cool a cotton shirt with short sleeves below looks very nice too!


Yesterday I ended up sewing  night, very late ... As always sleep late! 
And this morning after breakfast we have made photoshoot! 
Carlota is not have combing hair and she have sleepy...
but... she liked  crocheted fabric dress that have made her mom!


I love the crochet dress with the lambs ... I looooooove.... looooove... 
could be a top for me...????????? shame!!! impossible!!! 
I shall have to keep in the closet for Carlota for next spring ...

For make these two dresses, as always, I have not used any pattern ... 
you already know that I've always improvise ...  

I sew crochet and fabric with sewing machine...
 is not very polished idea but... I like my sewing machine!

I confess that I enjoyed to make these two creations. 
And  for many days I did not I used the sewing machine 
and yesterday I had a great time sewing...
Finally something I do for my daughter...!

Enjoy the holidays and be creative! There are so many things to do ... 
Enjoy! Take advantage of the summer holidays! 

 Thanks for visit me in my world of wool and thanks for your comments! 

Kisses!

crocheted cushion cover for Laura


Few days ago I started to make this crocheted cushion cover. 
This is for Laura (see his blog here ),  we have did a interchange. 
I asked him what he wanted me to do it and she said a crocheted cushion cover!


I have worked with eleven different colors and with a crochet hook to 2.2mm. 
A year ago  I have bought these yarns here 


You already know that I like the circle in a square, right? No doubt! Once again it worked!
Before joining the squares I made some color combinations ... is so much fun doing this!


And after doing many combinations, this is the color combination 
that won for make this crocheted cushion cover!


And Laura told me that he liked ocher colors...
 then I've worked with different shades of orange...


And the fabric cover  I've put a zipper in orange! 
I do not show you the back of the cushion... the fabric has been very, very badly stitched... 
I apologized to Laura for my ineptitude with the sewing machine ...
sorry... sorry... soooooooooorry............


 Luckily the front  looks pretty good, right? 
Laura knows sew very well and if you visit  his blog 
you fall in love with their creations!


And to you, Laura, you like this crocheted cushion cover?
It is for you!


My poor daughter is tired of seeing things and can not touch anything... 
to be the last day I will let she touch the crocheted cushion cover!
 she likes everything that makes the mum! 
she is my number one fan...!


The world of blogging is fantastic! This is my fourth interchange! 
It's amazing  do a job for a person you've never met 
but know a lot of she thanks to the work shown on your blog... 

Thanks Laura! thanks for all the good times you give me with your blog...! 
I love your work, I like a lot! 
I will come back to apologize for errors sewing...
