Project: Christmas Gift for Cha

I think I caught the Scrooge bug because it's a week from Christmas and the only gift I have bought is for my Bosses at work! Haaaayyyy...

Anyway, I started on the necklace I'm making for Cha as my surprise Christmas gift and I hope she would really like it despite the sunshiny colors I chose here. Hope she won't find it too sweet and girly for her taste

I think I'm calling this Autumn because of the lovely colors

The pattern I used was partly taken from Linda Permann's book Crochet Adorned

Dorset Buttons

Eversince I started creating crochet necklaces, have always included Dorset Buttons in my pieces as I find them very versatile and fun to make!

Some of my early works

It was difficult sourcing out the rings needed and I even went as far as Quiapo only to find poor quality and one-sized plastic rings. Had no choice but to buy them since I was already itching to start on the buttons, they were cheap anyway.

So here are some of the necklaces I made with Dorset Buttons:
my first creation: birthday gift for my sister Cha

my most popular piece bought by popular model

Project: 3 Buttercup Bracelets for my Nieces

Getting hooked on my latest book, Crochet Adorned, I made some cute bracelets for my nieces whom I haven't seen for so many years. I gave their bracelets when we had a family reunion last All Saints' Day at Heritage Park and they were ecstatic!

Here's a picture of the bracelets below. I'd probably ask Mika to send me photos of the bracelets as worn...
