I finally got around to making a couple of patterns! Theres 3 for the time being, which I completed over the weekend. 2 crochet (one bead) and a needle lace pattern all available for purchase on my Etsy store. More to come I hope, this obviously depends on how much time I have to spare.
Each pattern includes: Photos, Step by step instructions, A "you will need" list, and Stitches used.
The good thing is that if any of you purchase the patterns, you know how to contact me if you get confused! How greats that!?
Anyway you can find my Etsy store HERE

Hello proud! I just finished the scarf today, and I ironed it and flattened out the motifs a little. I love this scarf. The colours go well, the motifs are cute, and overall I'm just so happy that its turned out the way it has. This baby will be on etsy soon so don't forget to have a squizz!
Newest oya scarf I've been working on. This time I decided to use tatted motifs as flowers. I think theres around 20 in total, and they are attached to the needle oya. My next post will be the finished product :)

This is the newest oya scarf I've been working on. I bought 3 new scarves the other day and I started on this one first. I chose colours that don't really jump out at you when you look at it, because I know that some people don't want to wear eccentric colours, and I'll probably end up sending this scarf along with 2 others to my mother-in-law if it doesn't end up selling. I really like the floral pattern on this scarf, and the soft subtle tones don't deserve bold colours to accompany them. Anyway I have one more side to complete before this scarf is finished and ready to be ironed! I should be able to finish it tomorrow night, so I'm sure there will be more photos in the next post I do.
Turkan Soray- 3 years ago I had no idea who she is, until I watched the movie "Sevgi Boylum Al Yazmalim" with my partner (which is his all time favourite movie ever) when I fell in love with her. So when I was trawling my local library, I found a book on making sock dolls, and I thought "why not make a Turkan Soray doll and surprise my partner with her when he comes home from university" So I sat down and made my 1st sock doll! I used one sock, stuffing and different coloured quilt fabric squares. I did a simple oya on the red scarf. She looks a bit angry, and her nose looks a bit joan rivers but hey, it was my first time, and I think Turkan looks spectacular.

So I really like anything with a pinwheel in it, especially crochet doilies! I started this bloody thing in january, but I stashed it somewhere in my cupboard when I was cleaning and couldn't find it, but then 2 weeks ago I found it and decided to finish it. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I plan to put it on a new buffet that I hope to buy in the next month or two.
