I still have some early summer crafting to show you. Months ago (seems like ages and ages ago...) I made these pretty Japanese flowers from my beloved Liberty fabric scraps.
They're really tiny and delicate. For quite a while, I wasn't quite sure what to use them for. In the end, I decided to make a necklace.
It looks very pretty around the neck. The flowers resemble tiny little buttons. My necklace has already received a number of compliments!
My other summer project was this Granny Square belt. I wore it several times but I always managed to leave my camera at home at the time so no photos I'm afraid. Until next summer...
It was really easy to make. I crocheted twelve squares but it turned out eleven were more than enough to fit my waist (the belt is very stretchy, actually). I added some pearly buttons, and voila! The pattern of the squares provides the button holes so there's no extra work!
The colours are my usual yarn colours, nothing new in that department, but I totally love them. The belt was mostly worn with my blue dress. Like it?
