Hexagon Bag

Photobucket
Hi everyone!!
I should have posted about this Purse Week : A Contest sooner but I spent almost all of my free time working on my entry.  I've decided to come up with my own pattern this round and it was really a good experience for me !  Remember the post that I wrote about these hexagons...

 

I have been playing around with the idea of creating a bag pattern from these haxegons and this was some sort of a trial version.  There are still a lot more work to be done to the pattern but I'm happy with what I've ended up with.... 

 I call it Haxegon Bag
It comes with a key holder at the side and a pocket.
If you happen to know about Purse Week only today, make sure to go over to A Lemon Squeezy Home for lots of bag inspired tutorials. To see what other talented people did...click HERE.
Happy Sewing!!

Crochet Along:Time Out Cowl

I finished crocheting the Time Out Cowl! Yea! I’m done. I really like how it turned out! I used bulky yarn …


The first Crochet Along that I've completed...  I really enjoy the fun and learn a lot from Rachel at Maybe Matilda. I choose to make my cowl into a twist style… and this is how it looks like!! Since I don't have model to put it on,I just use the hanger... If you wish to see  finished cowls by other talented people you may click HERE.


Thank you  for stopping by...

Happy Crocheting!!

Crochet Along:WiP


Today I would like to share my progress on the Crochet Along that I participated at Oxford Family Blog! Item that we have to work together is a full size Sunburst Granny Square Afghan. This is the pictures of my progress for week 3 

and  this is for week 4 which I crocheted up to round 5. I only completed 11 pieces of squares so far.



Honestly as at today,I only managed to crochet 30 pieces out of 88 squares that we require to have for the afghan.  I plan when I start crocheting the other 58  pieces I will complete it up to round 6 since week 5 is just around the corner.
















I would also like to share my progress on the Crochet Along with Rachel at Maybe Matilda. The challenge is to crochet a Time Out Cowl!!  The completed cowl size should be 30 inches and at the moment my cowl size is 20 inches.



I need to crochet another 10 inches to complete. I plan to do it by this weekend  and will share the completed cowl in my next post!!

I'm sharing this at Ambassador Crochet

Till then Happy Crocheting!!!

Mug Rugs

This is how my first Mug Rug looks like after binding.  I made this for my own used. My mug rug at its new home ...  my office and with its new friend ... the mug.


Since sewing a mug rug don't take much of my time, I did another mug rug for my hubby.  The color of my choice are range of orange and brown.  This time I add embroidery pattern at the center. 

The completed mug rug....

 

I am sharing this at Mug Rug Madness Flickr Group and Stitch in Color!! and also shared this at Clover & Violet Stash Project...
