In any household with kids, the space occupied by the toys is more than the space occupied by any living creature of the house.
So Here I’m with a Kids room storage idea. For sometime, I wanted a hanging storage space to shove away the toys after use. We already have cardboard boxes stand but that stands on ground swallowing floor space.
But I found something that is off the ground and moreover easy to toss the toys.
Here is what I’m referring to
Initially I stitched the hammock using a lacy material. My mistake, the material was lacy but not strechable and so it became useless in few days.
Now I decided to try using crochet and here it .. fully loaded with soft toys.
It is easy to organize, easy to search and all the more, the kid can play aim and throw 🙂
It can be made for sale. So if you are interested, pls let me know.
Circle skirts are my favorites to stitch and my daughter’s favourite to wear.
For me, the drafting and cutting are simple.
For her, the waves generated in twirling and spinning gives her happiness.
I had cut this circle skirt for my niece but then postponed to stitch and soon she outgrew the size.
I was hoarding it as I loved the print and did not know to re-purpose.
So after quite some time, I used the same circle pattern as frock skirt.
The yoke material is from Nalli Silks from Marthahalli.
The shop has good collection of cotton materials if someone is interested.
The yoke I drafted from an earlier frock.
Anyone is interested for such frocks.
I can make for commission.
I made this Amigurumi Dinasaur for my daughter as her birthday gift.
As I was doing it, I was forced ( by her) to tell that it is for her and it is a Dino , so no more surprises there.
But yet, she was expecting a Brontosaurus ( long necked dinosaur) whereas the one I made was a Triceratops.
That’s a surprise for me that she expected a Brontosaurus because I was very confident that she likes Triceratops and always seen her playing with her Triceratops Dino toy.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.
I visited “The 7th Annual Handmade Collective” and here are some pics.
There is so much eye candy that you loose track of all the things you see.
Coconut Leaf toy making workshop
I made this felt hanging few weeks back and wanted to post immedietely and so after few weeks, I was under the assumption I had blogged this. After scrolling up and down and clicking next, I realised I did not 😦
So here is the better-late-than-never post about this felt hanging/mobile made for a new born in family.I made this greatly inspired by Crib mobile of Josie. I just added pompoms because it was there in stash and I liked them and I did not do enough number of felt circles 😀
So I made circles in 3 sizes and glued( only hot glue works, fevicol did not work for me) them in concentric circles and then glued 2 pieces back to back.
Hope the kid enjoys seeing those vibrant colors.
I have been blogging for a while and have recently started a facebook page
Delightful DIYs to show case the DIYs I do and to reach to more people. Come and have a look when you can 🙂
Not much to brag about and here are two doilies that I made during the silence period.
First one is Double Pineapple Doily which I made after getting impressed from this one.
I made it with the cotton thread I bought on Raja Market and it took 2 full hanks. I was left with not even a handful of yarn.
Throughout the last few rows, I was nailbiting and hair scratching whether I will have enough to finish or should I buy one more hank just for the last round. Finally God saved my nails as well as the doily.
The second one is Victorian Rose doily which I have already attempted here.
I actually started with Fractal doily with the group in Facebook. For some reason, my doily was very big(yes, I did with Anchor knitting cotton) and came out of shape. The colors did not work. So decided to rip it out and try in single color. Till that time, I wanted to do something and so did the already perfected ( Oops read attempted) Victorian Rose doily and really liked it a lot.
I have stuck it on the wall and it is very heavy( obviously as it is almost 3 100 gm balls of Anchor knitting cotton). I tried with double sided tape which was not strong enough, so I have used these https://www.amazon.com/Command-Picture-Hanging-12-Pack-8-Medium/dp/B000OF6X48 for extra support.
I got these from my sister in Australia, but I’m sure it must be available in Staples.
