For this project you will need:

  • One terracotta pot – 3 inch in diameter
  • Piece of material (old sweater will work)
  • Bit of stuffing
  • Two buttons (one big 1 inch in diameter, and one small and button for the flower on the top 0.5 inch in diameter)
  • Circle piece of felt approx. 1.5 inch in diameter with one hole in the middle
  • 5 inch long piece of elastic
  • And probably 5 grams of DK yarn.

Assembly

1- Take your tapestry needle and sew to short ends together (joining the 2 ends of the rectangle. You should get a tube like shape), sew it as tight as possible. Fastening off. Then sew a running stitch all the way around the edge of the tube and pull the running stitch tight.

2- Stuff the firmly, forcing it to stretch until the desired diameter.

3- Sew a running stitch all the way around the second edge of the tube and pull the running stitch tight to enclose the stuffing in the fabric tube.

4- Now take a needle and thread it with floss.

Tie a knot at the end and find your centre, push your needle ALL the way through until you reach your knot.

Then take your thread and go around to the other side and push your needle through again and pull ALL your embroidery floss through. Do this again opposite your last line.

Do that again and again, always going through your CENTER with the needle. I went around my cushion a total of 8 times. When you get to the last one tie the knot, to secure.

Don’t forget to fluff and shape your cushion.

5- Pull elastic through the button, and insert it in to the terracotta pot hole.

6- Pull elastic through the piece of the felt. Next sew elastic to the centre of the cushion. Last sew felt circle to cover ugly part, and don’t forget to sew the flower and button on the top of your cactuses.

Don’t forget to water it regularly! 😉

Pattern for the flower:                                                                                        Rnd 1: All flower we will work in magic loop. (3 ch, 3 tr, 3 ch, slst) 5 times, tighten the loop. Fasten off. Leave a long tail to attach flowers to the body.

Touch of magick

This year I take a part in few Christmas fair, so you can imagine piles of unsold stuff lying on my kitchen worktop! 🙂 One of those piles was Christmas tree ornaments, this year I made 20 of those, and haven’t sold not a single one! So I decided to use them somehow. And here what I did. Looks good, and really easy to make.

Pattern:
nnn

Rnd 1: Crochet around the ring using the single crochet stitch. And keep crocheting all way around the ring, keep pushing stitches close together. When you done slip stitch in the first stitch of the round.
Rnd 2: (5 chains, single crochet in next stitch)continue in this manner till the end.

Sew few beads, and wrap your presents! 🙂

And please have a best ever Christmas!

Love you all and I’ll see you next year!

Invisible decrease

Hello.

It’s November 6th and it means what only 48 days and 11 hours left till Christmas! So I started to think about it in advance and I made one easy and cute Crochet Pattern- Christmas cats Ornaments.

  6-001

I’m really happy with a result now when it’s finished, but I’ll tell you the truth I struggled a bit in the beginning.

And my biggest problem was a decreasing part of the cat’s body. So first time in my life I tried an invisible decrease but it didn’t look right. So I invented something new!
Invisable decrease 1

As you can see on a first picture decreasing line is visible and it’s because each and every decrease goes right under the previous round decreases, so all what we have to do is to break this line.

And it’s really easy to achieve. All you have to do, you need to replace a decreasing part in your pattern with a pattern below according to stitch quantity. So for example you have 48 stitches you need to follow the pattern from round 5. If you have 72 stitches start from round 1. And so on!

Rnd 1: (1 dec, 10 sc) 6 times: 66 sts
Rnd 2: 5 sc (1 dec, 9 sc) 5 times, 1 dec, 4 sc: 60 sts
Rnd 3: (1 dec, 8 sc) 6 times: 54 sts
Rnd 4: 4 sc (1 dec, 7 sc) 5 times, 1 dec, 3 sc: 48 sts
Rnd 5: (1 dec, 6 sc) 6 times: 42 sts
Rnd 6: 3 sc (1 dec, 5 sc) 5 times, 1 dec, 2 sc: 36 sts
Rnd 7: (1 dec, 4 sc) 6 times: 30 sts
Rnd 8: 2 sc (1 dec, 3 sc) 5 times, 1 dec, 1 sc: 24 sts
Rnd 9: (1 dec, 2 sc) 6 times: 18 sts
Rnd 10: 1 sc (1 dec, 1 sc) 5 times, 1 dec: 12 sts
Rnd 11: 6 dec: 6 sts
