Something Eggy... ...

Hi friends,

Long time no see! Today, the stars of this blog are my crochet eggs! I used a 4mm crochet needle and 8 ply Craft Yarn, some eyes and some key rings.

This is Jack, he loves the colour green. Unfortunately, he is laied as a blue egg so he dyed his hair green. Because of the length of his hair, some eggs say he looks like a spring onion. Espeacially his sisters. Even I agree, do you? He is very smart, he always gets an A* in his eggygarten tests. He wishes to be a teacher when he grows up.

This is Violet, she is the oldest among the three. She loves taking care of her younger siblings and helping her mother make sure they are present at all times. Her favourite pastimes are singing and dancing. Although, her singing is not every good, she wishes to be a singer when she grows up.

This is Saffy, the youngest of them all. She is very shy and always needs her older brother's help to speak up to others. She is very close to Jack that is because she is his twin sister. No one would believe that they are twins because of their personalities. She loves dancing as much as her sister and she learns from her. Her dream is to be a ballerina and dance in front of an audience, if only she is brave enough!
What a happy family!

Tune in to more of my crochet amigurumis. Bye for now! See you again next time! Good-bye!

Bookmarks for Bookworms and Coasters for Cookers

Hello everyone,

I will show you some of my crochet FOs - bookmarks and a coaster.

I love reading, how about you? lf you do, you'd like these handy little bookmarks.
My bookmarks are very handy and fast to make. The method l use is the same as granny squares. l crochet them some tails so that it is easier to find where l'd stop the last time.

They looks like this:

How'd you like them? One for each of the family - smallest (the cream and grey) for me, medium (the pink, red and grey) for mummy and lastly, the biggest (the blue, orange and cream) for daddy.

My mum loves cooking and baking, so l made her a cup-sized coaster for a start.

She tried placing a cup of hot coco on it but the cup was too big for the coaster l made for her.

l decided to give it to my father to place his plants on it. And it can fit, l will do more for all his little plants. My father loves the beautiful colours on the coaster.

lnstead of a cup-sized coaster, it is a plant-sized coaster.

Hope you have enjoyed my bookmarks for bookworms and coasters for cookers or mabey coasters for cactis. Stay tuned for more craft done by me in Little Jayne's Flower Crafty Coner.

Do not stop crafting!!! See ya later!!! Bye for now!!!

Finger Knitting Projects #1 - Head Band

Hi everyone,

l have done up a head band for myself using finger knitting.

My head band's proccess:

This is how it turned out:

Doesn't it look like a fairy crown??? lt does to me.

Ta-da!!! l'm a princess!!! Jump for joy!!!

I love finger knitting, it is simple and fast to do.

Tip : Be sure to use soft and fluffy thread, it is easier to finger knit with nice, soft fabric.

Finger Knitting (1)

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, my mum planned to meet up with one of her knitting friend, Annette. She brouguht her daughter, Nicole, so we could become friends. It turned out that we are friends!!! Three cheers!!! The good news is that we will be meeting later tonight, yah!!! She taught me how to do finger knitting as I was interest in it. It was simpler than knitting. She is an amazing crafter, she is only 11 years old and she mastered knitting, croshet, now even finger knitting.

I have just learnt how to finger knit. It is a very simple thing to do, want to learn how???

Steps for finger knitting:

Step 1: Tie two knots on your index finger.

Step 2: Loop around your middle and ring finger, starting from the back. Loop twice and end on your ring finger.

Step 3: Wound around your fingers, this time starting from the front of your middle finger, end at your ring finger.

Step 4: Curl your fingers and pull the inner string down and make a stich on every finger.

Step 5: Repeat the same step for all the rows and see what you can make.

Hope you can get something out of it,

Something Special

Three days ago,I wanted to knit a belt so my mum gave me a colourful ball of yarn to knit with. I started with 14 cast-on stiches and I continued going on until I thought of an idea , which is to give my belt a special patten. My special patten is to knit 40 rows. Then , I started to cast-off and make it thinner. After that, I knit 16 rows and begin to cast-on until I get 14 stiches again. I will keep repeating the same thing until I get my size.

This is how it turn-up today :

Yum Yum Banana Popsicle

Just last week, I made another popsicle and I name it 'Bananarama', cause it is tastier than the watermelon one and it is made out of bananas.

Here's how it looks like :

The steps for making this popsicle are the same as the watermelon popsicle, just that I used the fruit banana.

Homemade Ice-lollies

Last month, I tried making ice-lollies with my ice-lolli making kit, it was my birthday present.

I tried out with watermelon-lollies, here's how it look like :

Step 1 : I put chunks of watermelon into the juicer.

Step 2 : After I blend the chunks, I pour the juice and the little bits of watermelon into four containers.

Step 3 : Then I place them into the freezer for a day or two.

Step 4 : I took it out and enjoy it on a hot day.
