Adventures in Crochet

I learned to crochet at school in 5th grade.

This little martian sheep/bumble bee was inspired by one of my cousin's designs (not an original, sorry..), I made it for a little 3 year old friend

It's like riding a bike, you never forget...

Dressing up a fake indoor plant from IKEA

I also watched my grandmother make doilies ever since I can remember. She also used to crochet clothes for my barbie dolls which I *loved* her for.

I turned it into a hanging planter, inspired by Dottie Angel

I tried to learn how to knit but it was like learning to write with my left hand! Too clumsy...

You can make hanging planters from doilies without having to crochet a thing, check out Dottie Angel's blog for inspiration.

Also, DIY Neon Plant Pots.
