Me always want to knit a bag, but couldn’t find right pattern. Then after searching on the web, I stumbled on one that I liked. So as soon as my urgent projects were finished, I went to my local wool shop. For this bag I bought lovely, soft and fluffy acrylic wool (we don’t have big choice of natural fiber): )
Pattern is quite simple, but need concentration, so no kids while knitting, please! More tricky part was lining, especially when you don’t have pattern. But must say, most of my sewing patternless, much more fun and challenge((: For the handle and button I crochet with 100% bamboo. When it was ready I really really love it. It was a keeper!
After a week of showing it of I got few orders! YAY! I was so busy with other orders so I asked my mom in law to help me. She knitted them really quickly and I finished the rest. Thank you Shirley(:
I’ll post soon variety of colors that I can make them.
Love, Yuli xxx
We have Norwegian surname Nilssen, Peters father was from Norway, so its in our family blood for sure(: There is something so great about Viking. Wild and strong…
I was browsing on the web, looking for fun pattern, it can take me hours, really addictive. So I came a cross lovely baby viking beanie, it look so cool. But one thing I didn’t like it was knitting pattern, and I’m not keen on it (me not a fast knitter). Then I decide to make my own crochet viking beanie. After few hours of fiddling with crochet hook it was done! TA-DA-M!
My boys loved it. First one was made for Sasha and for Max I’m planing to make red one. Its made with Elle Gold Chunky, its quiet a good one from our local shop. Beanies were a hit, I got 5 orders right away! Even made one for small baby for baby shower. Must ask them to send me photo, mean while I use my doll (my parents gave it to me when I was 5) as a model. Beanie for baby I made with pure cotton. Only best for very small!
So awesome to make something that people like and want to have one(:
We went to see new animation How to train your Dragon. My guys were so happy that they have beanies like those movie vikings! Definitely will try make some for girls with plats, I think it will look cute. Will keep you posted.
Size: from baby to adult
Price: R120 – R150
I made my first crochet beanie for Sasha, when I showed it to my friends they really liked it.YAY! And my friend Claire was keep telling me that I must start selling them. At that time I just stop running mother and child workshop, so didn’t really feel like doing much.
Then last April Lisa asked me if I would share craft market stole with her (she was doing t-shirts). I didn’t think to long, so there I was making my first stoke for the craft market.
Here is photos of my first beanies, I think I made about 11 of them and few pair of slippers. Didn’t have much time before market, so it was a bit of a rush. Don’t like presure. But I did it! I enjoyed doing it!
Oakhurst food and craft market was on Claire farm. It was beautiful and cold day which was great for my goodies(: Peter looked after boys, while I was selling my stuff and chatting (love chatting((:) It was long day for us, but loads of fun. I sold 90% of my beanies and one 1 pair of slippers, plus I got 5 order. Its so nice to do what I love and also make a bit of money!!! Sooo grateful. Thank you. X
P.S. Thank you to my lovely models - friends: Yuliya, Rebecca, Sam, Joily&Marcel, Sasha and Max.
