My First FO of 2019

Yays! I am pleased to share with you my first finished project of 2019 – a little pouch to hold my new folding keyboard, a gift from my fiance who was worried about my carpal tunnel. Bless his little cotton sock, he does look after me – I didnt even know such a thing existed.

anyways, here is my pouch. I didnt follow any sort of pattern. I crocheted 2 pannels of star stitch that matched the size of my keyboard, with one 3 starts taller than the other to add a flap. Then added 2 rows of single stitch around the edge of the rectangle. I then stitched the rectangles together with a third row of single crochet and finished it off with scallop edging. finally I added pair of buttons to secure the flap. 

This is crocheted in 45g of Scheepjes Sunkissed. 

And of course, the cat wanted in on the photo shoot, so here she is:

Sunny Face Pads

Another set of facepads for you today, this time with a sunny feel.

And for these ones, I have a pattern to share. 

This pattern is worked in a spiral.

R1. Sc 6 times into a Magic Circle. (6)

R2. Sc twice into each stitch of the previous round. (12)

R3. 2Sc in 1st stitch. 1sc in next. Repeat 5 more times. (18)

R4. 2Sc in 1st stitch. 1sc in next 2. Repeat 5 more times. (24)

R5. 2Sc in 1st stitch. 1sc in next 3. Repeat 5 more times. (30)

Now to create the suns rays:

And there you have it. You very own crochet facepads. Perfect for gifting with some sunny soap or just for brightening up your own morning routine.
