Raspberry Shawl

Posted By shumaila / Comments 0.

I wanted a big warm shawl for Winters. So I made this shawl by keeping this in mind. It has turned into more of a throw but since I used a larger hook, it does not feel heavy on my shoulders. It can cover me from all around which means I can also wear it […]

Posted By shumaila / Comments 0.

I absolutely love crocheting flower burst cushions. I’ve recently completed my third FB cushion and this time I chose Autumn hues. As I get easily distracted by tons of other things, it took me forever to complete it. I’ve put up this one in my shop for sale and perhaps this would be the first […]

Chevron Cardi

Last month I received these lovely wristers from my friend Arooj. I was so touched when I received these as my first crocheted gift. The only problem was that I never wanted to take these off! As you all may know by now that I love making handmade gifts for my loved ones and I […]
