Toy Hammock

Hi All,

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.



Black and Colors

Hi All,

Its cushion time again. Here I have tried the stained glass effect on this cushion.
Black is used as main color and the contrasting colors are used for diagonal lines.

I wanted it to be symmetrical and so the red diagonal line is just one.The pattern is diagonal box pattern which I have already tried here.

It was fun in all stages. While making the first cushion, choosing the colors were fun. Especially I loved the blue against black( that’s actually on photo but in real I like the mehendi green and missed having favorite Yellow )
Then thought a while how to maintain uniformity of having 2 rows of all colors and also making the cushion symmetrical. Then came to understanding that there can be only 1 diagonal line 🙂 and did not want 3 row red( chances of running out of yarn) and so settled with 1.

Every bit of fabric used for making and lining the cushion came from my stash so thumbs up for that 🙂

Finally sewed it 2 cushion filler also to slip inside the cushion. Again used fabric and polyfill from stash.
Using things from stash is one big positive feeling.

Do tell me how is the cushion and the finishing.( yes I did try a lot to get some neat finishing)



I love doilies

Hi All,

Yes, I love making doilies. But I don’t know how to use them. I make them and take pics. Then it will be safe inside the cupboard.
But this time, I hope it does not remain safe in another cupboard and instead get used.
Yes I’m gifting this 🙂

My inspiration to do this doily is Ninu’s pineapple doily.

Hope you like it.
I have already made the same pattern before but did not finish as I ran out of thread. This time, I purchased the same color thread again to finish it properly.

I made this doily with the cotton thread bought in Raja Market. I bought only one skein and ran out of thread in 21st row. Later bought another skein and finished it. The color runs heavily. The thread was royal blue and after wash it is just dark sky blue.
I have a doubt whether I blocked it properly. It does look like circle, but in some angles it looks as if it is slanting on one side.
Anyways loving the complete doily.



Now comes the cushions :-)

Hi All,

Hope I did not bore you much with my previous post and just as a trick my next post comes very quick.
