personalized pillow cases

A few months ago , on a rainy evening i decided to try my embroidery skills for the first time... so i took out a couple of plain white IKEA pillow cases and my needles and gave it a go. Ok its nothing special or something that requires any special talent but they are really unique and so "us" !!!
i love them so much and mrB likes them too...he couldnt stop laughing when he first saw them....
now im thinking of making a whole series of personalized pillows and sheets, for us and for our friends...i just have to sit myself down and come up with simple but funny drawings.

I also made a lovely heart with some white christmas lights that i no longer use.... just shaped a piece of metal  wire in the shape of a heart and then wrapped the lights carefully around simple and so cute!!!!
I just have to add some colour to the wall to make it look better...a light gray is what im thinking but im not sure yet....

happy beads and felt fabric

a very hot Sunday here in Greece...too hot to do anything...i wanted to do some crocheting but i couldn't even touch the yarns...then i though of doing some drawing but i had no inspiration at i ended up playing with beads and felt fabric...
i made a few ridiculously easy necklaces...just happy coloured beads and a few plastic miniature toys (the ones you usually find in kids ice cream cups) !
and then i remembered my promise to my best friend Iwannna, to make her a little cupcake magnet for her fridge ! so i took out my felt fabrics, cut them into shape, sewed them together by hand, put some pillow stuffing inside and ready!!!! i also added some happy beads to make it look a bit cuter :)
i wanted to make more but mrB just wont let me in peace...he wants to go out for a coffee or something so i have to leave you for now but ill be back tomorrow!!
have a lovely rest of the day!!xxx

crochet bags !!

Today i want to share with you 2 amazing crochet bags that my beloved cousin RITSA made. She lives in Crete and runs her own English Language School !!!! She's a very active and crafty person that loves animals and enjoys life to the fullest !!!! She also loves to spend time diving, swimming and cruising with Nemo.

A few days ago she crocheted these beautiful bags and sent me the pictures. I fell in love with them, especially the blue one, and just had to show them to you!

She also sent me a link to the pattern of the blue bag which you can find  here !
