It's not the same, but it's pretty cool anyway. It is in Portuguese, but I thought it was neat enough for you to see.

This is the Canon 7D. Swaddled in TFA Grape. Yes, I said swaddled. Because nothing says love like TFA yarn. No Patons cop-out for my camera! I crocheted a camera cosy. There is a reason, besides just reaching for hitherto unheard of levels of crafting madness; it protects her from the elements, and allows me to tuck in a few hand-warmers around the battery casing which extends the life of lithium batteries in the cold. While I’m at it I’ll give you another little nugget of wisdom – if you’re taking your camera out in elements of dubious merit (rain, rainforest, fog etc.) then do this first: Go to a shoe store, ask them for a bag of the silica gel packs (most stores throw away a ton of these things every day) and pack a bunch of them into your camera case.

I left openings in the cosy for all important things, like the tripod foot and the dial for changing shooting modes, settings and of course, the shutter button. Brown Slippers. (Update: To see more of my patterns, please visit my ONLINE SHOP!)

Finished. Here it is. Last time I showed you these squares. They were so much fun to make. You can find the tutorial here. After I finished the squares (and stared at them lovingly for about three hours) I went on and crocheted them together to make two panels. One panel has more yellow in it, the other one has more green tones. Fingerless Mittens. (Update: To see my original patterns, please visit my ONLINE SHOP!)

This is a story of a girl who was trying to knit with four double-pointed needles for the first time in her whole life. The story is going to be exciting yet scary. She struggled… She felt sad and lonely… The needles kept attacking her repeatedly … How to crochet a heart. Galerie de Attic24. Birdie Decoration. This is my pattern/tutorial for a hanging Birdie Decoration.

Birdie Decoration

A completely useless object of course, but very cute all the same. It's an easy project to make, great for using up odds and ends of yarn and can be used in all sorts of ways to bring a little good cheer. This little birdie is made in four pieces :: a round flat circle for the body, a small triangle for the beak and 2 leafy shapes for the wings. There is also a hanging chain to make which you can decorate with flowers if you like, and the option of adding some dangly legs too. First a little summary of the basic crochet stitches :: sl st :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) dc2tog (a 2-stitch decrease) :: insert hook, yarn over, pull loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook).

I know– seems a little lofty for a such a novice like myself, but I’m really excited about it. Right now I’m practicing and I have to admit– I LOVE it. I’m playing around with two different styles of squares that seem pretty easy (I’m still learning how to read patterns) and different color combos. In the meantime, here are some fabulous granny square tutorials for you to check out and try!
