Bottle cozy/cover using macrame

Hi there!

IMG_20180207_213139112

I find macrame a good substitute for chunky yarn projects which need not have to be warm and fuzzy. Macrame is quite sturdy and lasts longer than yarn.

Crochet Hook: 5.5mm
Yarn: Macrame in purple

Round 1: Magic Circle, 6sc into the circle & then pull it close. (6)
Round 2: 2sc in each sc around. (12)
Round 3: [sc in the sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (18)
Round 4: [sc in the next 2sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (24)
Round 5: [sc in the next 3sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (30)
Round 6: [sc in the next 4sc, 2sc in the next sc] * 6 times. (36)
Round 7: sc around on the reverse. (36)
Round 8: sc around. (36)
: ( sc all the rounds in between)
Round 18: sc around. Finish and weave the ends and seal it with fire. (36)

Then used needle and four strands of white yarn to sew the cross stitch heart, now my baby’s bottle is safer than ever. And bonus, I spent a little over an hour to do this.

Embroidered vegetable storage bag

Hello there! I’m back with another embroidery venture of mine, and not to forget even hand sewn. With an active baby girl who mostly catnaps through the day I barely have time for anything other than chores, but that wouldnt stop me from getting this done. Ideally, it should have been done in a day but it took me two whole weeks to get it done. I folded a piece of fabric 25×30 cms and sewed the sides of the bag. Folded the top part to make space for the drawstring and sewed it in place. Now getting on to the embroidery since the thread count of this muslin was very less I used another backing fabric to do the wool embroidery. Then free handed the carrot pattern, I wanted the carrots to appear as a bunch when the bag is pulled close, hence spaced them accordingly. Im so proud of this idea, that I’m claiming royalty rights to anyone who wants to do this 😀

Actually I love the way it turned out, exactly the way I want it to be. My carrots have stayed fresh for over a week and I couldnt be any more happier with this pretty bag.
