A Crocheted Make Up Case

Hello! How is everyone? Today, I am catching up on blogging about a recently completed project, which became a birthday gift for a friend. A crocheted make up case:

It was crocheted in rounds in a variegated mercerised cotton (Katia Jaipur) on a 2mm crochet hook.

I then lined it with felt and added a zip:

And that was it! I slipped a bottle of funky nail polish in it and gifted it to the birthday girl, who's a big fan of purple.

I had good fun making it and would definitely make more with the same yarn or even a different one.

Thanks for reading, folks, and see you soon! :)

More Bridal Motifs

Hello! It's been quite the week, I'm telling you, and although no alcohol was involved at any point, I kind of feel a little hungover. Not in a bad way! Just big things happening. I will of course keep you posted :)

But in the meantime, let's see what motifs I've been crocheting this week. I am still trying various patterns found online, without being sure of which colours I want to use, and here's the result for today:

I found the patterns for these motifs here and here. The latter is part of an amazing collection of video tutorials that I strongly recommend if you want to expand your crochet knowledge.

Thanks for reading, and don't forget Jijihook's challenge!
