Wild Garden Rose Doily

I made this doily by looking at the “Dublin Garden” doily picture, originally designed by Dot Drake and published in “Crochet Wishes and Wonders” by House of White Birches in January 2000.  I made a slight variation in the the final edging round. Though it may not be exactly like the original one, I liked the fact that it does look somewhat similar.

Irish Roses (Crochet) – 2

Crocheted Irish roses is an integral part of crochet art, and what can I say about them, they sure give a tough competition to the real ones, so beautiful, so colorful…its a treat to our visionary sense, the only thing that lacks is the fragrance.…..  It is no longer a far fetched dream as the pattern is readily available on the internet…They are so aesthetically designed to please one’s eyes giving them a royal ethnic look, very gorgeous, very elegant for home decor with grandeur, can be used as an embellishment with any accessories…

These Irish roses I crocheted for my next doily (Dublin Garden Doily by Dot Drake) 🙂 …

After completing the rose, lacy edging is done with a sc over each stitch and 3 picot stitches on top of each petal (middle 3 stitches of each petal).

Pretty Flowery Crochet Basket

I was making a drawstring bag.  In the midst of making this bag, I came across this cute little basket 🙂 …I found this really cute and felt this deserves a separate post for its cuteness…I think there may be numerous step by step pattern instructions all through the net, but I thought of giving in between pictures of how I made it so that it will be helpful for those who want to make it at one place itself and they don’t have to go in search of pattern.

Bright & Colorful Crocheted Bag

A kaleidoscope of bright colors is the simplest way to liven up a casual outfit.  Add a gorgeous handcrafted bag in bright pink, blue, green, red, & yellow :)…

This one I started as a scrap yarn project rug/mat (see my previous post https://crochetshelters.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/wip-scrap-yarn-rugmat-crochet/)

I started having second thoughts as the work progressed.  It was looking so pretty and beautiful, I didn’t have the mind to use it as a rug for people to step on it or as a mat..so converted it into a beautiful bag 🙂 …hope you all agree with me…

Bag Handles

I did a strip consisting of sc’s (single crochet) with a spike stitch after 7 sc’s of required length, twisted it to look like a rope, and attached it to the bag :)…

 

For closure, you can add a zipper or a button closure with a loop of your choice, and your bag is ready 🙂 …

 

For more decorations, you can have pompoms or balls or tear drops, or flowers or leaves hanging from the handles 🙂 …
