Happy New Year!!

02 01 2017 DIY

Love yourself even a bit more and spread love and kindness around you - It's free and I really do believe this will help making the world a better place these days...

These adorable little chunky crochet hearts are perfect to get you into the right mood for this.

The crochet hearts are great for decorating on any occasion throughout the year (not only for Valentine's Day but for sure it's very perfect for that special day...) and also make wonderful little handmade gifts.

I have chosen recycled fabric yarn for this quick and easy project, but any other yarn is fine too.

Fabric yarn makes a really solid heart whereas other yarns will be softer.

If you choose thinner yarn you need to adjust the stitches and do more rounds.

Material you need for one crochet heart:

- about 11m not too thick fabric yarn ( mine is from Wollfactory) - if your yarn is very wide you can cut it in half or you can cut your own yarn from an old t-shirt for example.

- crochet hook size 6.0mm

- scissors

- a little bit of filling (some un-spun wool like I used or yarn left-overs or some synthetic fill material)

Here we go - you crochet in rounds and because I usually totally confuse counting crochet in rounds I came up with a really simple tutorial with very little counting :-)

Start: Chain 2 - leave the first chain really wide (picture step 1)

Rnd1: work 4 single crochet in 2nd chain from hook (meaning in that first wide chain...), pull the ending tight to form a close and nice tip (picture step 2 and picture step 3)

Now...

Tea-Time And A Winner

26 11 2014

Thanks so much to all who participated in this print Give Away.

I loved reading about your favorite teas in the comments.

Seems like a lot of you like spicy teas with ginger or Chai Tea.

I love both, too.

Especially Chai on the weekends when there is more time to savor. 

My every day tea is a herb mixture from Sonnentor but I also change around. I don't really drink black tea because it makes me sleepless even if I let it brew longer.

There were 11 entries counted from the first comment on the bottom and random.org choose number 9. 

And that made me really happy.

Because Andrea wished the print for her husband who recently gave up coffee for health reasons. Very brave!!!

Congratulations!
