Easter crochet

Hi all,

I have been very much inspired by all the lovely crochet for easter that I have seen online! I normally don’t write many patterns for the holidays but there is something about the colourful cuteness that I have been exposed that got my creative juices going!. Before I even show you what I come up with I want to show you what I mean.

Evidence number one, this lovely hen from vendulkam super cute pattern!, love her eyes!


Staying with the hen theme what about this free pattern for egg cosies from corinne-frieden

There are some super cute crochet bunnies out there, check this cool guy from Snails Child in Dawanda

I love the embroidery on this egg, find the tutorial here

Something Yummy for mummy! Crochet summer shawl!

Hello all, this is my very latest pattern, I love the colours on this one!

This very colourful crochet summer wrap is the second on my spring/summer collection for this year. I am going through all my drawings for the collection and although this is one of the most recent I really wanted to get started on it!, it felt like coloring in with yarn!. And the best part is… it is half price from Craftsy! only $2.50! enjoy it and make something yummy for mummy!










My passion for crochet bags

Hi my name is Luz Mendoza and I am addicted to crochet bags!… this could possibly be my introduction to a support group I should probably go to :o)

My better half always asks me if ‘I really do need another bag…’ really? are you going there?, do I limit the amount of cables you bring into the house?, by the way I think they breed cos my house is full!. Anyway this is not the place to vent domestics… It is the place to talk bags… crochet bags! a while back I wrote about some of the designs and designers that I have been following for a long time, they produce stunning bags, you can see them here

In this post I wanted to talk about my crochet patterns for bags, I moved the blog from to .com a few months back and gain quite a follow up through Pinterest and Facebook (Thank you, thank you all!, I am so humble you chose to follow me!) . So to all the new lovely people who are part of my little corner of the internet I wanted to show you (or show off more like!) my bag patterns so far… I have sooo many ideas my poor little hands cannot crochet or knit them fast enough!. This is my story so far, enjoy my gallery!

First things first! I have uploaded my girls flower crocheted bag to Craftsy at the special price of $2.50 only for this weekend! take advantage!. Love this little bag, they put lots of tiny little dolls whenever we go eating out, they take their play with them! crochet flower bag

One of my favourites is the (I cannot call it like that because of copyrights) Chanel bag! shhhhh…. It is not Chanel, it is just a crochet bag! :) on sale on here

For those of you who like to upcycle, I do quite a bit specially denim upcycling, love denim! pattern here
