Custom made

After finding out about my hobby, a few of my colleagues asked me to do some custom work for them. 
Among these handmade items were two phone cozies, each one unique and hopefully an adequate representation of what their owners had in mind: 

The first one is a black colored phone case with a yellow bird on it that we all know too well and love, Tweety:

The second one is inspired by a set of brooches I made a while back, the Peanut-butter and Jelly sandwich brooch set, and has a red background:

On the back you can see a purple flower shaped button which secures a mechanism that doesn`t let the phone slip out of the case:
I enjoyed making these lovely cases and I can only hope that their owners enjoy using them! 

Have a lovely day,

Different kind of owl

It was loads of fun making the apple key-chain, so I figured I should make one more and as you might have figure I made one shaped as an owl. I just could not resist and it seems that others felt the same as this little guy already found his home :)

Here are some pictures, front and back:

And the leafy mechanism that works the same way as for the apple key-chain:

So how do you like this different kind of owl? Should I make some more?
As I know myself by now, I probably won`t resist not making more. Hehe

Have a lovely week,

An apple a day

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" or at least that`s what they say. As you might have guessed this will be an apple related post only I`ll be showing you a little different apple, not for your tummy, but for your keys. Yes, keys! This is something new I wanted to try for a long time now, but as all my ideas it took some time until it became tangible.

It`s a key-chain of sorts, only you don`t put it on your keys, instead you put your keys on it:

When you don`t need to use the keys just pull the leaves and the keys go into the apple, I also added a bookworm so it won`t be dull:

When I was little I remember my grandma having a similar key-chain, only it was made from leather and was shaped as a pear. I don`t know what happened to it, but I am glad that I had the memory to inspire me to create something similar.
Hope you like it!

Nighty night,

Crochet flowers

Got my hands on some beautiful two-colored yarn from the department store and made this extra large crochet flower with a diameter of 14 cm:

For the center flower I split the yarn and used the pink colored part and from the remaining yarn made a simpler gray crochet flower, both decorated with vintage gray buttons:

Didn`t manage to figure out what to use them for yet, but I`m leaning for brooches. What do you think? Is the XL crochet flower to big for a brooch?

Maybe I can use it as a decoration for a bag...

Have a good one,
