Felted booties for newbies

The moment I saw these booties online by chance, I fell in love with them: tiny, cozy cuties...
No doubt I immediately wanted to make them myself. And here you can see the results.

Booties are made without any seams or stitches from natural wool using just water and olive oil soap, in other words they are made using wet felting technique. 

These natural wool booties are very suitable for babies as they are made from natural soft wool that lets the small feet breath.
Such booties are perfect for any season: they will keep the feet warm in winter and cool in summertime due to the natural properties of wool. In other words, felt warms in winter - cools in summer.
Felted shoes are lightweight, durable, water-repellent and non-allergic.

Cabled sweater coat ROWE

Finally, my dream come true - I knitted a cabled cardigan for myself! Another dream is to knit a cabled purse...perhaps I'll plan it for the near future. 
I'm mad about cables in knitting, these patterns are always my favorite among all knitting technics. These textured and twisted designs make any garment look stunning.

I found this particular pattern here, it's called ROWE cabled sweater coat by designer MICHELE WANG. In fact, there are many marvelous and stylish patterns on BROOKLYN TWEED site specially made for hand knitters. I would love to knit something else from there some other time.

Hollow bead jewelry

Long time no hear from me.
This project was waiting long till I published it. The set was made to suit my outfit bought for the wedding of one of my husband's relative. Not for the traditional wedding, but for its western part - reception, where you can wear western clothes without any fear that you may look odd among all traditional colorful saris, kurtas etc.
The necklace is made with hollow beads from polymer clay, and I used extruder technic for the pattern.

 The idea wit the zip on the bracelet came from the blouse, which has a golden color zipper on the back.

This it probably the first jewelry set which I made specially for me.

Lunch tote for my husband

One more lunch tote after a long period of time. I've fallen in love with that polar bear design. The pattern is again from my beloved sew4home, and the tutorial is here
My husband liked it a lot. It's just perfect for his lunch box, has a small pocket in front, and closing on a Velcro.
The bag finishes at approximately 11" tall (excluding the handles) x 7" wide x 3" deep. The handle loops extend an additional 9" beyond the top edge.
