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!
