Crocheted Rug!

Since I've bought & read the book "Simple Crochet" by Erika Knight, I thought of crochet my own small rug. Not only to have one actually, but to know how it is to crochet some strips of fabric or old T-shirts! I liked it very much, but definitely, I prefer yarn :)

With one of my cat as (useless) model. This cat is almost all the time near me! :)

Rilakkuma Hand-carved Stamps

I began trying to carve my own stamps a few weeks ago... It's so much fun, I can't stop carving now! It's not easy at all at the beginning. You have to find the right tools & the right carving block, the ones that suits you.

These are some of them (yes, I'm totally obsessed with Rilakkuma!)

Be tolerant, I'm a newbie in carving! These are my first ones :)

Rilakkuma in the clouds

Was dreaming of a crocheted cloud! and as I LOVE Rilakkuma and I don't find any stuff about/with him here, I've decided to make one myself! It's not as cute as the real one though... The brown is too dark, but they both add something "relax" in the room ;)

patterns found in Japanese craft books
