Maybe you're already back from holidays or you'll soon leave for a sunny destination... today I suggest a new knitting pattern to make a sunglasses case, and that one is a navy case I'm sure you'll enjoy for summer ! It's easy-to-knit and you won't need many supplies. You can even add an iron-on marine anchor patch to decorate it.
*For that project I used the Pingouin Pingorex Baby 100% acrylic yarn in the shades 307 (White) et 308 (Navy Blue)
This sunglasses case is a rectangle made of 43 stitches and 55 rows knitted with striped stocking stitch, changing from blue to white every 2 rows. It is folded in two parts and sewn with a lapel
to insert a rattail cord and make a drawstring. Finally an iron-on marine Anchor patch is applied as a decoration.
If you're willing to make a similar case for your sunglasses, don't hesitate to download the free pattern below.
I wish you a very nice summer and I hope you will enjoy knitting a similar case for your sunglasses. As usual, don't hesitate to send me pictures of your knits !
See you soon,

Last year I posted a picture of a knitted bunny on my Facebook page and a lot of you have requested me to post a pattern explaining how to knit the same bunny. Unfortunately I couldn't find the
exact pattern so I made another one for you, it's more personnalized but I did my best to get a similar bunny and I think it's pretty cool ! Don't you think ? I'm so happy to share the pattern
with you , I love the colors, pink and white which are my favorite colors I think on the website, but you can use any color you like to knit that bunny.
Let's go ahead and see how to knit it.
You need to follow several steps to make that knitted bunny. First you will knit the head and body parts (same pattern) then the arms, legs and ears. Then you will sew the different parts of the body, pad them with polyester flakes, put them together and sew the whole body. Finally you will knit a little dress and sew it on the bunny.
Each step is detailled in the free pattern. If you need any further information, feel free to contact me.
You can download the free pattern below and you can also explore the free pattern
Once you made your own bunny, don't forget to share your pictures on Facebook (see my Facebook page to send me a message), I'll be super happy to see them ! :-)
See you soon,
If you're looking for a decor for your birthday party you will enjoy making this paper banner ! You'll only need some paper and some cord. This banner will help you make a cute set for a buffet
For this project you will need :
If you want to make the exact same banner, you will need two sheets of Toga scrapbooking paper, in the collection "Instant poétique" #3 and #5.
For the first step of this DIY you will draw triangles on the back of your paper sheet. I didn't use a special pattern, and you can draw any kind of triangle, the size doesn't matter, but it has
to be long enough, like a pizza slice for example ! Then you can interchange the small and big triangles on your banner.
Then cut the triangles.
To set the paper triangles on the cord, apply some glue inside the flat (the base of the triangle) and maintain it with some tape.
Once the triangle is set on the cord, cut the edges exceeding of the flat. Repeat the operation to set all your triangles on the cord, then make a loop at each end of the cord to attach your
banner on the wall. If you don't want to use nails on your wall you can simply use some tape to fix the banner.
And here's the result ! What do you think about it ?

See you very soon for new DIY's and many other projects !
A couple days ago I tried to make some easter decor elements using the items I bought last year (especially the little chicks from Hema that I used in the post called "an outfit for Easter"). I had some chocolate eggs and natural raffia and since several weeks now
I wanted to make a nest and use it for a personnalized Easter composition.
What's interesting with that project is that you can arrange the chocolates in a nice way and use the nests to offer different compositions to your friends and
You only need some raffia to make the nest. The most complicated part is the beginning of the nest because the raffia is quite thin and you want the base to be strong, so you will first use one
piece of raffia and bend it every 3 cm, crossing the different sections step by step.
You will progressively get a solid base and you will go on crossing the sections around the nest, putting the sections up and down the edges until you get a complete nest, high enough to hold the chocolates and chicks.
Make sure you attach the raphia pieces with a knot to secure the nest. Once the nest is done, you can arrange your personnalized composition and add the final touch, some florist paper
(crystal) to wrap the composition and a piece of curling ribbon.
Here's a new knitting project that will show you how to knit a mug cozy using moss stitch ! It's a great way to decorate a table or a coffee station. It will protect your hands and keep your drink warm. This cozy is very easy-to-do as you only have to knit two rectangles with knit stitches and purl stitches. I used a big yarn and needles #10 so it took me less than an hour to knit the mug cozy.
1st rectangle :
Cast on 21 stitches, needles #10 and knit 9 rows, moss stitch (around 2,36 inches).
Bind off the stitches.
2nd rectangle :
Cast on 7 stitches, needles #10 and knit 2 rows, moss stitch (around 0,39 inch).
Bind off the stitches.
Put the cozy on your mug, make both ends meet and sew the upper side of the cozy above the handle.
Sew the small rectangle on the bottom ends of the cozy below the handle. Your cozy is ready now !
I hope you enjoyed that project ! If you made a personnalized cozy for your mug too, feel free to send me your pictures on social medias ! ;-)
See you soon,
