Tea parties and chocolate chip cookies

I have been very busy getting to know my little baby boy who arrived on November 15th, but not too busy to work on these pink placemats for a customer in Australia. I used my Alicia pattern in them and crocheted them in country pink cotton. They are perfect for a springtime tea party with some homemade chocolate chip cookies ( I don't know how I had time to make them ).

I am really hoping my customer will like the placemats. I plan to make them available in my shop in off white as soon as I'll have some time to make them and take some photos. But right now my little Hugo is a priority :)

I have used my Marimekko cups in Maalaisruusu-pattern and some Marimekko napkins as props in the photos. Aren't they perfect with the pink?!

Neutral Nursery with White Doily Rug

I have just finished the last custom rug before I put my crochet hook to rest. Our baby is due next Thursday and I'm so happy I was able to get this wonderful pure white doily rug before he decided to enter the world. The rug is 110cm in diameter and the pattern is my Sara. I still have a couple of colorful Sara rugs for sale in my etsy shop that are ready to ship.

This lovely rug is on it's way to Australia since yesterday and I really hope it will be loved.

White Lace in the Nursery

I have to say that making these little baskets with the lace edging is serious fun! I will need to make a set of 3 nesting baskets to sell in my shop as soon as I will again have time. This white basket in the photos is for a customer of mine who is going to use it as a christening card basket and later on in the nursery. What a great idea!

I love to use these baskets all around the house. They also make great covers for flower pots.

Taking time off to get ready for my baby boy

My baby boy is due to arrive in a month and it's about time for me to take some time off from my boutique to get ready for my baby. I have put up a vacation notice to Henna's Boutique on etsy and to my boutique's Facebook page. Please make your orders before October 15th!

Pink Baskets and Teddybears

My basket creating continues. This time I made three lace edge baskets for a customer of mine in Ohio. She custom ordered two country pink baskets and one off white basket. I made them in 9" width and 5.5" height to fit her daughter's nursery.

As you can probably see in the photos, I took the photos in my baby boy's nursery (due in November). I will need to make some blue baskets for myself now that I saw how well they fit to cubbies in his closet. You can fill the baskets with all sorts of cuteness, little socks, mittens, caps etc. And why not use these baskets on the changing table (I don't have one yet, have to get busy...)

This basket can be found in a smaller size in my shop Henna's Boutique. To custom order a bigger size or different color, contact me thought my shop.

Flower petals and rose cups

I have been working on a crochet rug with flower petals and it has been taking me a long time. The rug is still not finished, but I fell in love the look of the flower petals that I decided to try to use them differently.

I wanted to make placemat and coaster sets with a flower petal edging. It proved to be a real neat detail in my otherwise very simple placemats and coasters. The sets were a lot of fun to crochet and I think they turned out gorgeous. They bring a little bit of romance to my dining table, the rose cup setting might help a bit too. 

You can find both of the sets at my etsy shop Henna's Boutique

Custom crochet storage lace edge basket

Here is a perfect and beautiful little crochet storage solution for a nursery. You can store all kinds of little necessities in this basket. I especially love it when my unborn son's first teddy bear gets to hang out in it.

This lace edge basket in the photos is traveling to a customer of mine who ordered it in robin egg color. The size of the basket is 8.5" x 5.5". You can find the basket in off white in my etsy shop in a slightly smaller size. This basket can be made in pretty much any size and in multiple colors. You can contact me through the blog or better yet through my etsy shop.

Today I sent out these two baskets in warm brown to my customer in Michigan. They were custom ordered in the beautiful color, I am so in love with this brown. The baskets are both 13" in diameter.

I offer a basket in this same size in hot pink, and two smaller sizes in lime green found here and here.
