Those of you who follow the blog may have noticed that I’ve been posting some crochet fruits and veggies lately. Well, it all makes sense now that I can show you they are part of a playing set I made for my little cousins so they can pretend they go to the market, or to the garden, or whatever! 🙂

Watermelon print is a trend. Well, maybe it’s not really like a worldwide trend… But I’ve been a little bit obsessed with watermelons lately, so I guess at least it’s a trend to me… 🙂

Oh, yeah, look at my hair… I’m a child of the 80’s…

I’m back! I know you were all worried because I didn’t post anything last weekend but you can stop suffering now 😉 I bring you something cool to make up for my abandonment.

I first saw this tutorial like a year ago and I knew immediately I was going to make a bunch of these oval boxes for my family and friends. They are fun and easy to make and they look a little bit more pro than the classic flat zippered pouch.
