Pleated Crocheted Skirt

I like crocheting wearables.  But making it to the correct size was always a problem for me.  while googling i have found a skirt pattern. It is very simple but very effective.  I have decided to try it out for my 3year old niece.  I was doing this last month and I happened to stay along with my niece.  So I took measurements of her, then my crocheted piece and finally i have made a skirt which fits her properly..  For the waist i have used half inch elastic which I have attached it using single crochets.  I am happy that I have crocheted a wearable.  

I have used 3 balls(each 10 grams= 12 Rupees each) of knitting yarn which I purchased from my local yarn shop.  

you can find the pattern here.  Thanks Kinga for the excellent pattern.

You can view my another skirt here.

In my next post I will come up with a sample piece of Long and short stitch in embroidery.

Crocheted Bag

I like to have crocheted bags.  A project can be finished within a short period of time in crochet.  I have seen a video in youtube for crocheting this bag and tried it.  The outcome is wonderful. You can view the video here.  I have used two colors of woolen yarn which I got from my local yarn store.  Now you can see the bag. 

One more shot of the bag hanging on the door.  It can hold a purse a cellphone and a small water bottle.  A magnetic closure has been fixed inside.  

My other crochet creations on bag: BLUE bag,    GREEN bag.

In my next post I will come up with a crocheted skirt which i have done for my niece.  Till then, Happy hooking.
