New Stars


Hello ladies! Spring is in the air and I’ve just had a long, long walk with Fleur. It is so amazing to feel the sunshine, the warmth, that it is almost a pity to go home again and sit here at my computer. But I have something new to share with you.

Last week I already gave you a sneak peek of what I was working on. Now I can show you the results.

092

Bright, colourful 5-pointed Star Pillows.

073

I made 3 different pillows; on top you see a pillow with the front and back panel crocheted directly to each other. In the middle there is a pillow with curved side panels, and the pillow on the bottom has a side crocheted on to the star-panel and joined in the middle. This means the pillow on the bottom is thick but flat, and the other two are more round.

Isn’t it fun how different they become, just by using different colours??

059

The English version of the pattern is now available in the shop

I’m still working on the Dutch pattern; it will be ready soon. Het Nederlandse patroon is af en ook verkrijgbaar in de shop!

Groetjes, Dorien

Ze zijn echt prachtig! Zijn ze goed te doen voor iemand die de basissteken wel kan (losse, vaste, stokjes ... ananassteek ...) Of moet ik eerst nog een paar jaartjes oefenen :)

Hoi Dorien, Ik kijk eindelijk eens op je webside. Imposant. Je bent helemaal haakjuf geworden en nog commercieel ook! Je haakt gewoonweg aan de weg...hihi. Goed hoor!
In ieder geval heel veel succes en groetjes uit Maastricht.
