Embrace your uniqueness, believe in miracles and sparkle from within..
Unicorns are the first thing that comes to my mind when i read this quote. Unicorn fever is catching up all over the world and doesn't look like it will fade anytime soon. So today I've come up with a pattern on how to make Unicorn macaron amigurumi. Let's head on to the pattern..

Sew the roses on the head and embroider the eyes and mouth before joining both the pieces

For rose: (make 3)
chain around 12 to 15 chains using blue, pink and lavender color yarns and leave a long tail
Roll the chained yarn from one end to other like we do for deco rose and stitch them in place when you are satisfied with the arrangement.

For joining the macarons, with blue or pink yarn (that you've chosen for the filling) slip stitch in the back loop of the top macaron filling part (blue here) with the front loop of the bottom half of the macaron filling, start stuffing with poly fibre fill when you're three fourth done closing the macaron and continue stuffing a little till the end. 

Attach horns and ears to the finished macarons and you can also add black felt pieces cut in small rounds for the eyes. 

I also have another important anouncement to make. After lots of thinking and procrastination, i've finally opened my etsy shop (yay!)

Also as an introductory offer, i give free shipping on orders over 20$ using coupon code FREESHIPOVER20 or click here  to get the offer.

May you have a magical and sweet day by making these cute little unicorn macarons..


A new look and a giveaway!

July 31, 2017

Hello people! Hope you all are doing good. I guess most of you have noticed the new look of my blog. I was content with the old one but recently i heard someone mention in fb that my site has some malwares and i have to go check them myself if it's true. I scanned using Sucuri sitecheck and found out it's true indeed. Having no idea of how to remove them i googled for some infos related to it and learned that having a third party blogger templates is one of the prime reason for malwares. There are indeed some new and beautiful templates available in blogger but missing some functionality that i liked. So i end up using another third party blogger template but removed the malware manually using this instructions. Now i'm happy that my blog is free from malware. So if you have installed a third party templates in your blog, i suggest scanning your site using any sitecheck for malwares.
My blog is still a work in progress trying to add and remove widgets and getting used to the new look.

Also i have another news to share.. Recently i hit 1K followers in instagram and so i'm hosting a giveaway in instagram. Visit my Instagram profile  if you'd like to enter or know more details about it.
That's it for now. Have a fantastic week ahead! Cheers:)

Crochet roses

The Earth laughs in flowers - Ralph Waldo Emerson
 Just looking at flowers brings joy and put a smile on our faces. So what to do when you can't grow them?? you make them of course! I made some crocheted roses recently and really loved it. They are simple and not time consuming. Here are some of the pictures...

You can find the free pattern on how to crochet these roses in here

I turned some into bookmarks with tassels at the end (inspired by pinterest)

This rose will make a lovely embellishment for crochet headbands (Unfortunately my little one hates to wear any headbands) Guess i can make hairclips out of them and use it myself :)

Handmade flowers are just as special as real ones, aren't they?

Hope you all are having a wonderful week. Happy crafting!

Your headphones are now ready to  be placed in the new watermelon holder. I'm sure this holder will avoid the headphones from getting tangled and will make your life a little easier. It's easy to carry on your bag too.
