Crochet Pattern: Fuchsia Flower

Once upon a time, my daughter Nayfah asked me, "What's the smallest bird in the world?"
I said, "It's humming bird. People named it colibri."
"How does it look?" she asked, again.

I opened Chrome on my phone and searched for colibri images. I found a beautiful picture that made me and my daughter charmed. Here is the pic:


My daughter said, "What a cute bird!"
I said, "What a beautiful flower!"
Seems like we have different point of view, haha!

I went to a nurseries and find no fuchsia flowers here, in Sumenep. So... I think I should make the crocheted ones.



Hours later, I messed up the yarn basket looking for white and pink fingering-weighted cotton yarns. I zoom-in the pic then tried to make petals.

Thanks God I found matching flower buds :D
And here is the result:

Done!
I was pleased by the result. Of course the original one is more beautiful. God make it, right? , I couldn't find the plant here, in Sumenep. having the crocheted version done, make me feel happy.


I documented the making process, including pattern and step-by-step pictures. Then, in my spare time I wrote the tutorial.

If you want to make this crochet flower, too, you can get the pattern on my Etsy Shop. It's ON SALE!

Karakteristik Benang Rajut

Di Indonesia, benang yang paling popular adalah benang acrylic wool , atau yang lebih familiar disebut “benang siet”. Namun, sebenarnya jenis benang sangat bervariasi.

DIY Tutorial Cara Menjahit Baju Tidur a.k.a. Sexy Sleep Wear (tanktop dan short)

Bismillah, Akhirnya, setelah sekian lama blog ini terbengkalai, saya siap dengan project baru lagi. Rajutan? Bukan! Kali ini baju tidur 😊 Beberapa pekan lalu, saya membongkar koleksi perca. Perca berbagai ukuran banyak menumpuk disana. Hehe... khas crafter lah, sayang kalau perca dibuang begitu saja. Di antara tumpukan itu, saya menemukan sehelai kain yang lumayan lebar, sisa membuat kerudung Nayfah tahun lalu. Awalnya bingung mau dibuat apa. Hingga akhirnya, terlintas ide untuk mencoba membuat baju tidur yang terlihat cute . Setelah browsing sana-sini tentang cara membuat tanktop dan celana pendek, saya beranikan diri untuk praktek. Tak disangka, saat saya menunggahnya di akun facebook dan instagram , banyak sekali yang mengapresiasinya. Karena itulah, saya buat pola dan tutorialnya; agar semua istri bisa membuat "baju anti pelakor"-nya sendiri. 😄 Target awal saya, setidaknya sepekan setelah upload foto tersebut, saya akan memposting polanya. Qodarullah, ternyata mouse rus
