Crochet bug

This is what I've been up to lately...crocheting.  Now I am not a pro and barely learning how to read patterns  but I've had my fun making my own adjustments.

A pair of slippers for me, I ended up not loving the color because one looks pinkish and the other looks greenish, and one button is higher than the other one. Oh well I still like them it's just the color I don't like that much.

A pair of slippers for the kids, they loved them.

As well as a pair for my nieces!

I also been working on a scrap bag, made entirely out of odds and ends bits and pieces of all kinds of yarn left over from various projects.  I kinda color coordinated the colors on this one. I put it up for sale on my etsy shop. I am currently working on another one and can't wait to see how it turns out.

On my many trips to the various thrift stores I struck gold!  I found a bag full of yarn scraps.  I could not resist to buy it.  I guess the crochet bug as bitten me.

Oh the possibilities!  
Can't wait to get started on a new scrapbag.


  1. So proud of you! I will show this post to Madison. She's knitting me a scarf. She would like to learn more. I might have her try crocheting. People seem to like it better than knitting. She can make up her mind on her own. ;)

  2. These are all adorable.....sadly, I can't crochet to save my life!

  3. Wow! You really have gotten into crocheting haven't you?! I love those little slippers. And those tiny booties are so precious. This is a skill I wish I had.

  4. Good job Claudia! The slippers are adorable! I love the scrap bag too. A perfect use for all those random skeins.
