Cushion covers for my sister……

As I told you in my previous post, I am in a blogging spree and trying to blog  about all my crafty finishes.  Once I am in India, it would be difficult for me to blog since we will be moving around to different places.

I managed to make these cushion covers for my dear sister, since I had a sample cover of her cushions which came with me by mistake alongwith my stuff, when I visited India last year.  (Though all the cushions have a standard size , in India people get there cushions custom made. So these covers are a little loose for my cushions)


The black and white printed ones are made from upholstery fabric, and I loved the print. The other two are made from plain black  linen fabric, and I have embellished them with the crochet doilies  I made sometime back. ( If you remember my previous post about the doilie)

I am sure my sis will love them….DSCN0214


I look forward to reading all your lovely comments,  I might not be able to reply to your comments and emails immediately since I am travelling.  But whenever I am able to access the net I will try and reply and visit all the blogs I follow.  Until then its bye from Preeta.

Gift baskets for my loved ones…..

I haven’t blogged since long about my crafty finishes, since I was focusing more on completing my work.   Today I am leaving for India, I have used the early check-in system and have already checked in my luggage. So finally I am at ease and I have all the time to peacefully blog my finishes before my flight which is in the night.  This time I decided to make these baskets to gift chocolates to my loved one back in India.  Since it can be flattened it is easy for me to take it along.  This is a tutorial from bread basket and I felt it is perfect to give a personal touch to your gifts.


I made six of them with golden ribbon to tie……..


Please do send in your lovely comments,  I eagerly look forward for your suggestions and encouragement.

Crochet finishes……

I have been doing this crochet edging since quite sometime, juggling between sewing some gifts, and a hectic routine of shopping,  kids exams and daily household work. 

Though it took me quite sometime to finish this one, I am happy I managed to complete it before I left for my summer holidays to India.

So here’s  what I managed to do….


I had also made a lavender sachet.  Since I am still in the process of learning to crochet, there is so much room for improvement and perfection.  So, while I am holidaying I will try to improve my crochet too, since that is the only thing I can do when I am away from my sewing machine and stashes over here.
