Crocheted baby flip flop sandals

It's been a while since I made any baby stuff. This morning there was a sudden and a very strong craving for it. And so I just had to stop everything I was working on and crochet these little sandals. I thought it was my grand idea ...until I stumbled upon so many similar ones online :(. Hmmm....but then how original can baby sandals get ?? But I loved making these and want to make them in many colours.Here is another picture ...just because :)

Wise little owls

I just love these little guys. My son grabbed the first one off the hooks:)There seems to be a craze of Owl-y things these days.Everywhere you look there are owl cushions, bedsheets, cards, door hangers , wall hangings etc...How can one avoid such cuties? These key-chains are not my own patterns but are inspired from so many crocheted owls online. You can see that the pattern varies slightly from one to another ...

Spring and flowers

April showers are already over and the pretty little blooms can be seen everywhere ! I love this time of the year. There is a beautiful fragrance in the air especially in the evenings and through the night. The whole of Al Ain smells like a bouquet of fresh flowers. This kind of weather inspires me to make flowers...Here are few ponytail holders and clips I have been working on. Yes, more flowers to come ...will post post pictures later. A few more pretties ...

Crochet candle holders

As usual this space has been quite for a while now. But that is because so much has been happening both in the crafting front as well as life. There is so much to tell and share ....I hardly know where to begin! So I guess I'll begin by sharing some of my projects. These are tea light holders with ruffled edges that are a bit glittery. I love the way the it sparkles when the candle light hits it. And because it looked so cute I went ahead and made another with a golden edge. This too looks very pretty when the candle is lit. Pity the pictures don't do justice. Or maybe I just need to improve my photography skills. And then finally a candle holder without the frills, with simple lines. it is white with silver specks.
