Crafting new things :)

Hello , hope you are having a busy creative time . Two weeks back , Raj and Anshita had their Birthdays and apart from store bought gifts and cooking their favorite food ,  I also made something handmade for them .

Crochet Scarf for Anshita :)

Crochet red heart ribbon yarn scarf


I had this Red Heart boutique ribbons yarn in my stash for a long time and I used this free scarf pattern . There is a video on the same link which is more helpful than the written pattern and one has to wind the yarn in a specific way which is also shown in the video . The scarf turned out a bit long as I just wanted to finish that one ball :)

We went out with few of Anshita's friends to play laser tag . They aren't yet ready to grow up :)

For Raj , I made a zippered passport bag :)

zippered passport bag
Not sure if he will use it but he was happy to get one . I used chain stitch to embroider 'Bon voyage' on a patch of felt fabric .


I made an eggless vanilla sponge cake which turned out very well and spongy . Recipe here .

I have completed cross stitch ladybird fairy but I don't have time to take nice pictures . Hopefully, I will share before the year end .

Happy crafting! :)

  15. Belated birthday wishes to your hubby and daughter. Lovely that you were able to make them both a gift. My husband teases that I never make anything for him. I did make a hat once, but it just didn't look right on him at all. Take care, Tammy

  25. I just love the scarf you made, Preeti--such a gorgeous color! And your husband's zippered pouch is very cute, too--you can always use bags like that when traveling to keep things organized in your suitcase...

    I'm sure that cake was as tasty as it looks :) Hope your daughter and husband enjoyed their birthdays and best wishes to them in this coming year!

  34. I'm so behind I missed this one. Great colours in the scarf, and nice idea on the passport pouch as well. Thanks for the recipe for sponge cake, I'll have to check it out. I've knitted a few scarves in those different yarns, it is a little tricky, but pretty quick to knit up.

  35. Goodness. Those cross-stitch projects are quite big and very detailed. I'm all about quick and easy now. I've heard of the Temari balls and seen some lovely ones. Good luck with finishing it off. Your pillows are very pretty. Best wishes, Tammy
