faux crochet again


a new week ahead, hope it will be a great week!

some of you are (already) really busy for christmas and i thought maybe i can help you just a little. last year i made some printable faux crochet stars which you still can find here and my post about christmas decoration to crochet including patterns and links to patterns which you can find here.

this weekend i made something new for you to print:

some of them are faux crocheted and some are more natural like plants or flowers. you can print them, cut and glew them on gifts or on cardboard and make a garland. you can decorate them with glittery thing or anything you like to do. maybe something nice to do with children or for yourself to relax.

here is the link to the document (pdf, 4 pages).

hope you will enjoy it! 🙂

i will be back later this week with some crochet.

thanks for visiting!

about crochet

in february this year i started this blog and secretly i hoped that, during the year, a few thousand people would come and see/read my babbling about crochet. i really like to share everything about crochet with you, in real life, everyone is a bit discouraged about the subject by now 🙂

while i was busy writing the post about japanese-books-and-a-scarf, i discovered that i was working on post number 100.

this morning i had 241198 views and i really thought the counter was broken!

because i love you to come here and as a big thank you, i have a gift for you, designed by good friend helga, who is a dutch graphic designer. 

this is for you!


no patterns, but pretty pictures and room for your appointments, notes and ideas.

about crochet calender 2012 (pdf)


an advice: it is best to print the calender on white matte paper so the photos stand out nicely, on 100 grams or – if your printer can handle it – on 135 grams. you then only have to punch the holes and hang it onto a surface with a ribbon or – crocheted – cord.

hope you like it!

more of helga’s work you can see on vormbeeld.nl

take good care and until january!
