Earrings affair

Last evening , while travelling I was thinking about the stuff I could make in less than an hour.So I came up with an idea .. why not make a pair of earrings ?
I looked for felt earrings on etsy and hooked by a very easy to make pair. This pair was for  $34.99
Idea was copied, little thoughts were put into it and here is the result.

What you need :

Felt pieces 
A pair of earring hooks
Pieces of Gold color chain
Glitter embellishments

How to Make:

Cut felt into leaf shape (3 pieces for each earring). 3 pieces should vary in size .Lowest one should be largest piece and top piece should be smallest. Stack pieces together in a way that top one is smallest piece.
Cut two equal size gold chain pieces and add embellishment on ends of chain.(optional).
In earrings hooks, insert the chain end.
Mark a point on top of felt where earring hanging is to be inserted. Pierce the 3 pieces with a needle or punch and insert the chain part in the hole.
Similarly make another one  to complete the pair. 
You can modify shapes and sizes according to your thoughts.

Now you are ready to flaunt these super light and pretty earrings. :) Oh yes.. I hardly takes half n hour to create a pair if you have materials ready with you.

Let me know if you try one. I would love the pictures of your craft.

 Happy crafting.

Baby Block toy

what does a mom makes while watching TV?

A baby block.. - Yes, a play block for baby to explore .
I crocheted 6 sides of block using single crochet and then used felt and fabric and other materials from my craft box.
Its like some unused beads and trims and laces were telling me to use them up . Here comes the result.
I looked for ideas on internet and here's what I created with a mixture of ideas and little thoughts.

Side 1- Nature.. - Leaf and grass to hide the carrot and sheep. Lets see if baby can find them interesting.
Side 2 - A monster.. which actually gives a tribal look because of the other side's ribbons and beads hanging on a side. Blame my rough stuffing into the block.Sides are falling off on other. But I find it OK. I am satisfied with what it looks like.

Side 3. Weather - Rainbow, Cloud and sun. Sun can hide behind the cloud and can also be pulled out of the cloud.

side 4. Various touch and feel things like thread ,beads , ribbon, flowers, wooden beads.


Side 5. A sort of Caterpillar.. I was trying to make a cute one though. This is what I ended up with.


Side 6. Elephant with elastic trunk. Sometimes I become so excited with the things .I pulled it so hard that elastic came out of stitching. I'll have to fix that again.Thank God , baby did not see her momy playing around with her toys.


One side with wooden beads , button and ribbon.

Gosh, Lot of stuff in one block. I hope my baby will love it.But I am sure, It can't keep her busy as she has started crawling and now she does not want to sit steady any more. I am still finding a place to hide onions and potatoes rack in kitchen.

Leg Warmers - With Love

Winters, winters... I love winters but my little one may not.. Her cheeks go pink .. tiny fingers go cool and little feet do not want to wear socks all the time.
I keep thinking of anything and everything that can keep her cozy and warm.
So I crocheted 2 pairs of leg warmers for baby.
One of them was shell design all along ( I don't have a picture ) and other one super simple and cute pattern from earning-my-cape .
One very big mistake I did was that one of them is HDC all over (except ribbing) and other one is SC all over. Both of them were not made together.. and I forgot to refer to first one while crocheting the second one.. Yeah I know still it is a huge mistake..bad memory.
I did not want to remake all again so I came up with an idea of making two pairs.So now baby gets 3 pairs. I am super lazy to remake things , I just cover up mistakes. :p
Story does not end here, I had a beautiful and pink soft yarn left over and I wanted to make something cool out of it.
So I crocheted hearts and hand sew them on warmers.That is not why these leg warmers are with love, its because I made them with love. Bad joke..I know..

so here is the picture of what I crocheted.. Mind it, both have different patterns as I told.. Yeah I know.. I am covering that up.. another half pair is in process.

More fun stuff in the progress.. till then happy crocheting.. :) :)

UPDATE : Tried it on DD.. here is how they look...
Pretty!!..aren't these??
