New Products Coming Soon!


My first try on free form crochet
Whew! Haven't been here in awhile... but the new interest in my crochet products has got me my crochet mojo back!

Got inquiries from Pinay wholesalers wanting to sell my goods here and abroad. Only too happy to oblige so dusted off my crochet hooks and took out my huge yarn stash. And of course, I wanted to create something new so went back to my trusty Pinterest board to get some fresh ideas and found really interesting free form crochet. Loved them! Pattern-less and your work seems to take a life of its own.

millicentmelissa Handmade Accessories in Rated K

Wow haven't been here in awhile. Just so busy, busy, busy!

But now I'm back mainly because I've returned to being a full time virtual assistant on oDesk. More importantly, millicentmelissa Handmade Accessories is going to be featured in TV again!

Yes, I got interviewed recently for Rated K with my Grandaunt Auntie Bobbie and cousin Kristel since the show will be doing a feature on generational hobbies and of course, our family has been known for our crochet!  Just wished Mommyla and were there too. Well I'm sure they were!

Watch our family crochet away on Sunday, July 20 at 8:45pm on ABS-CBN!

Being interviewed by Kim (Rated K Producer)

Crochet Project: Elise Shawl


Just sharing with you my latest project which is probably the biggest one I've done so far: a shawl for Marti's Grandmother (my ex's Mom), for her birthday.

I found this pretty pattern on Ravelry called the Elise Shawl which is free for download! Click here to get your copy.


Unfortunately, I've ran out of yarn! So off I'll go to Carolina's over the weekend and hope to find similar colors because I bought mine from Divisoria.

Keep you posted!

Crochet Project: Misty's Earrings

Enjoyed making these earrings for a new found friend but an old acquaintance! 

Misty was my highschool batchmate back in St. Paul College of Pasig and through the wonders of Facebook, we were able to reconnect and found out that we shared passions: parenting and accessories!

She sent me several pictures of earrings she wanted me to be inspired by for the crochet pieces she ordered from me and we agreed on these three:


So here are the finished earrings and hope that Misty would love them as much as I do :)

Crochet Project: Kim Tae-Hee "My Princess" Headband

Got an interesting customized order from our Facebook page before the holidays. Our customer Cy sent us this photo of a pretty headband:

And even though I told her that the item in the photo was knitted and not crocheted, Cy went ahead and ordered the crochet part without the headband.

So I went ahead and researched about the accessory (did you know that you can drag a photo on to Google Images and Google finds the closest information about it? Try it, it's way cool!) and found out it's a hot fashion accessory among Kpop fans. It was worn my Kim Tae Hee in the "My Princess" Korean telenovela. Apparently, it's sold out even on eBay and that's probably why Cy found me :)

That's Kim Tae Hee on the left wearing the handmade headband

Anyway, had to eye the pattern and make my own version in crochet and hope I did justice somehow! Here are the photos of the work in progress:






Not bad for my first freeform crochet project :) And it's even less expensive than the $20.00 eBay price of the original headband!

New Items Available in Our Store

Barefoot Sandals in Orange Gerbera with detachable flower

Holiday? What holiday? 


Well, that's how I felt when I saw it was already the last day of the year and for the first time in my life I was swamped with oDesk work and crochet projects instead of panicking with Christmas shopping for other people. It sounds selfish but it's the best gift I could give to someone who spends the rest of the year taking care of others :) Try it...it's liberating!


Anyway, I also got my sister hooked on crocheting all over again and she made these fabulous crochet bracelets:

Melissa bracelet in Gold with Jade Squares

Melissa bracelet in Gold with Turquoise Squares

Wear 'em stacked!
Here's the detail shot of the Barefoot Sandal in Orange Gerbera (the one on top of this post) and another shot without the detachable flower:
