My crochet week !!!!

Just little things done for a couple of events in school !

On Tuesday : Hippie Day …

On Friday : International Week …. (not only the Europe bunting !) ….

Following a couple of patterns (here and here), I crocheted a headband with a flower  for myself (in the picture above, the green headband is at the top right corner of the picture)…

… before taking this pic, I was having a little discussion with Tobia … see the happy faces ???

 some flags on big safety pins …

On the closed side of the pin, I used a 4mm hook to work 12 single crochets to start the flag; then for each colour, I crocheted 6 rows using half double crochets. To have a sturdy flag, I worked using 2 threads of same colour for each section.

For my boots, I crocheted a classic granny square (of 3 rounds) to decorate the left boot, while around the right boot, I knotted 3 chains (green, white and red) …

In the meantime, I started to crochet some granny squares (colours chosen by Tobia), for a blanket …

…. little things that kept me busy …. and happy !!!! ;oD

happy weekend, xxxx Alessandra
