Last week, the most amazing thing ever happened. I couldn’t imagine more spectacular way to celebrate my THOUSANDTH SALE on Etsy. Thanks to my friend Magda, I found out that Christina Aguilera choose Modern Crochet Club hand fan for THE VOICE show. My idea, my design, my crocheting…. and She choose it 🙂
I searched the entire internet to find some photographs from this episode, and I am really proud to share with you my finds.
Here it is, Christina Aguilera in american The Voice with Modern Crochet Club deep red crochet hand fan!!!
I also found the youtube movie with Ellen DeGeneres show, and what is even more amazing, and what is even more amazing. The photos of Christina Aguilera with my hand fan, are not far from photos of Christina with Hillary Clinton. I was thrilled.
Still can’t believe this happened. It gives me so much inspiration for designing new patterns and fills my head with so many new ideas how to use crochet in todays world 🙂
Thanks Magda, for showing me this photos and thanks to Christina, for choosing my hand fan for this big TV show 🙂 And most of all thanks to all my family and friends, who believed that my homemade crocheting is something more than old fashioned doilies and can be used with joy every day now and in the future and can’t be called only granny but also modern (even though, it is inspired by lace doilies) 🙂
Do you remember this bunch of hand fans I made in December? Sheila was so kind and shared her wedding pictures with us 🙂 This was a beautiful wedding at Bahamas, far far away from cold and snow. Sheila and Jason, I wish you both a lifetime happiness!
I have to say, that Sheila had a great idea to contrast pure whiteness of her dress with the turquoise of the sea of Bridesmaids dresses. I also have to say, that my hand fans recived a perfect background with this blue dresses 😉 I am not modest at all.. shame on me! ;))
Thank you Sheila, it was a great pleasure to see all of you during your wedding day 🙂
I wish you all the best in this New Year! It was a busy beginning, so you have to forgive me this little delay.
As a first design in 2014, I want to show you my first try with triangle barefoot sandals. I hope you will like them a lot, because I still want to think, that the turn of the year is the best time for my new crochet ideas ! As you may remember, my first ever sandals where designed between Christmas and New Year two years ago 🙂
So, here are the triangles.. bermuda triangles maybe 😉
The second pair was made in Mint Green
The same triangle pattern was also used for “gloves”
I also used my previouse Diamond Barefoot Sandals Pattern and with some modifications tried it with Swarovski bicone crystals. Photos during this gray winter does not show it in all its glory, so you just have to believe that it was a good try too 🙂
I promise to make this photos again in a sunny weather, with all the reflections and blinks that Swarovski crystals show us with every move.
