To celebrate those 2 events I made her a special present: an IPad sleeve specially designed for her :) I used crochet, tatting (for the first time actually), needlepoint and I sew the pieces by hand. The design theme for one side was a "To do list" for her with two goals: finish the 4daagse 2013 (which I checked 'done' since yesterday was the last day of it) and holiday in Romania (which I left un-checked because that is still to come). And on the other side I draw a whimsical picture of her dressed in the colors of the 4Daagse marches - green and orange :)
The crocheted flowers are just random patterns I found on the internet and that I saved on my Pinterest boards. I save there quite a lot of free patterns and diagrams, so if you are looking for inspiration it is a good place to start :)
I also tatted a butterfly (not very good I must say, but it was my first try at tatting). The pattern is from a free video tutorial , but the catch is that this video tutorial is in Italian. But, if you understand the language and you want to learn tatting, this is a very good way to do it, especially that the butterfly tutorial is from a series that start with the basics and goes on demonstrating a lot of interesting tatting projects.
Enjoy watching the pictures I made with the "making of" and let me know what you think of my little project. I am curious to know what you think of it :)
