Instagram pouch

I did something lovely! You know! One of my favorite apps is Instagram and at last I did it! I made a zipper pouch for coins or other little stuffs with the shape of Instagram logo. I know this is not a new idea but I like it so much and I'm happy of what I did:

I also have a board named "Instagramlovers" with pins of great works others have done. What about you? do you like instagram? Do you use it everyday? Tell me about it and feel free to comment your Instagram address so I can follow you there.

Toddler Crochet Shoes

 It was all by accident. I started to make a little basket with that darker green yarn. Everything went well until mom said: "Are you going to make a toddler shoes? Good idea! I really like them!" and I suddenly changed my mind. So I left the basket idea and continued hers . I'm so happy they seem paired,  because I didn't use have any pattern. Fortunately they look nice and I love them.

Yalda, Last night of Autumn

We have a special tradition here, in Iran, that we celebrate the last night of autumn called Yalda. This night is the longest night in a year. So the families gather and celebrate it to forget darkness.
We have some sweet traditions as well. We have special candies, sweet and salty Nuts. Two special fruits of this night are watermelons and pomegranates. It an honer to show you a nook of Yalda in my house so you can enjoy this night as well.

 sweet and salty Nuts
 My lovely elephants
 My favorite mirror set
 Do you have any idea who Hafeez was? He is one of Persians' great poets .At Yalda night we read his poems and enjoy them. So his book is necessary to be seen there.

I hope you all enjoy these lovely nights and days of autumn and winter. Good luck!

Christmas stocking

 Let's talk about the signs of Christmas. I made this one and I love it. My fiance is fond of orange color and me too! I'm trying to make a crochet version of this as well. I'll show it to you maybe on Friday :)
By the way, today I've decided to have a link party so I would be able to know some other creative bloggers. It's so simple; leave the name of your blog and it's address. I can't wait to see both my old blog friends and new ones links here.Feel free to spread this link party in your blogs by crabbing the link party's button located in right column of my blog.

Little Miss Sunshine's Dress

My 5 years old cousin, named Mastaaneh, is invited to a birthday party. So I started a new dress for her. As a sign of autumn, we have rainy days here in Tehran and I thought the sunshine color might be good to make her happy and warm. of course she has to wear a shirt and a pantyhose as well. And don't forget your rain coat dear Mastaaneh!
This is the back view of the dress. It's still difficult for me to sew zips neatly. I need to try more and more ...
I was eager to take a photo when she is wearing this but my aunt was in hurry and I didn't want to interrupt her. Maybe I would be able to take some photos on Friday that I will meet them again.
There she is! My lovely little miss sunshine in her new dress:

I also made this pouch named rainbow after rain. She really likes it and wants to have it in the birthday party. Thinking of her show off in party makes me laugh :))))

I like rainy days but I can't wait for the snowy ones. I like autumn and winter so much but sunny days in winter, days that snow covers everything and you can make a snowman, are my favorites.

Turning a topcoat to a girl's dress

I bought this red topcoat before these three months of sitting home because of my foot plaster.

I really liked it but one day  I made a bad mistake and burnt one of sleeves during ironing. I couldn't bear the burnt piece and I didn't know want to wear it anymore. Since the fabric was really good I decided to make a girl's dress out of it and here you are:
I like the apples ribbon and the flower lining fabric as well. I may give it to one of family girls as a birthday gift. It fits to 5 to 7 years old girls.

Girl's Pink Slippers

I was wondering if I can make slippers or not. They didn't take much time. They consist of two kinds of yarns.
 And the bow:

  I gave them to a little four years old girl named Golta. Unfortunately the photos of her modeling the slippers were not as well as I expected. So I made one photo from all of them:
The inspiration of this slippers came from this shoe:

Carpe diem

Yesterday was such a lovely day. My friends surprised me with some lovely gifts and celebrated getting rid of my foot plaster. I am so happy and let's share my happiness with my dear blog friends.
First I wanna show this schedule mug. You can write on this mug with a plain pencil or a water-based pen and then erase it for reuse. It's so practical and I can not wait to go back to my office and show off this to my;)

 It also has a pen holder:
You may find complete information about this mug here. The other presents, as shown in images below, are as sweet as the first one and I like them so much; my little pot and a souvenir from India: Mango tea. This tea tastes Fantastic.

When I saw this souvenir I was thinking about dear Preeti, one of my blog friends who lives in India, and her sweet comments that lead me to continue this blog. She also has a beautiful blog named Creat - E - witty Unleashed. Thank you so so much Preeti!
By the way, Tehran is rainy these days and this cheers me up. I love rainy days.

What about you? Do you like rain? What the weather looks like in your city these days?

cellphone chevron crochet cover

Do you remember this purple shade crochet cover for my mom's cellphone?
Well one of her students has been crying so bad to have this for herself. They don't usually mention children when they are crying for s/th , but Mom couldn't stand her tears and took a promise of her to do s/th nice to have this. The girl drew a nice portrait of my mom achieved the cellphone over. I'm not sure why she wanted it this much and so badly, though I'm happy that someone likes my
So I started another crochet cover for mom's mobile. I have to say that I really like this kind of projects for crochet; They are easy, fast to finish, and make others happy. Hope you'll enjoy it too.

By the way the doctor opened the plaster around my leg. I'm not allowed to walk yet. But I'm so happy I got rid of that heavy stinky plaster that made harshes to my skin. I really couldn't stand it anymore. At least I have free feet now:
First Days...more than two months ago!

Freedom as a bird

I recently have a strong feelings about birdies... I like their flying power, their freedom, nesting, and everything else about their lives. I also have a board on pinteret about them named Freedom as a bird. There I found some inspirations about the birds crafty nests such as these:

And when I saw this chips container, I started to dream about my own bird house:
 So I tried to make it lovely at least for myself:

 And at last another Before-After post that I like very much
I also think about another plan for this one:
What do you think? What can I do for this one?

Little bag for a little girl

I gave that purple cellphone cover to my mom and one her student, a five years old girl, really liked it and wanted it so much. So I decided to make a little bag for her in those shades of colors. This came out. I specially like the owl and wooden button.

As you see in last picture, I've done nothing to my bird house. Maybe I've been disappointed of the fact that nobody reads my blog or I  don't have any single comment in my posts...maybe I should quit!
