DIY easy gift pouch. No sew.

Hello my lovely readers. Its a fine and pleasant Saturday afternoon and we are having light showers and grey skies. This weather is kind of  soothing as it is mid June and Ramadhan. *Blessings* , *Blessings*. But hey, wait, are we talking about weather in this post? Nah. not at all! This post is about the super cute and super easy gift pouch that I have made and in this post I'm sharing the tutorial with you all.


What is a gift pouch?

Well. Its a small pouch made of fabric that you can use to put your gifts into before giving them to your friends. These add charm and make your gifts more presentable. 
I think they also give the sense that the person is indeed much loved. 

What are the materials used?

Just few.
1. Fabric of your choice.
2. Leather stripes. in case you don't have leather stripes you can use ribbons.
3. scissor.
4. Stapler.
5. Marker.

How do you make one?

I have uploaded a nice video on my youtube channel. Watch below.


If you make one for yourself don't forget to share with us.

DIY Starburst boots.


So here we are again with the granny hexagon post. This time we are joining them to make a boot from them. It's colorful, super easy and super cute. 

We will need 6 granny hexagons and 2 slipper soles to complete this boot. I have already uploaded detailed tutorials for both of them. Click on the pictures below to get to them.



Step 1: Take 3 hexagons and join them in a way as in picture below. 




Step 2: Put this arrangement on the slipper sole and stitch them as shown in picture. the black dotted line joins with the edge of the sole. and the white lines joins together to form the back of the boot.



Step 3: This is how it will look from the side. 1 hexagon will cover the foot and 2 others will cover the ankles.



Step 4: Make a row of single crochet over the rim of the boot and if you wish you can make a string and tie them up when you wear these classy boots.




The final picture.

Thank you and keep crocheting.


How to crochet a starburst hexagon

Look at these colors and how wonderful they look together. Spring is already here and this hexagon pattern is bringing in extra positive energy. I'm getting overwhelmed with joy that I'm finally able to upload this beautiful pattern.

I have a video version of this already uploaded on YouTube. Keep scrolling to get to it.



Materials Required:

I used:

3 ply cotton yarn in colors Bright Red, Green, Yolk Yellow,and Sky-blue.
9 g poly hook(3.25 mm aluminium hook)

Stitches Used:

Round one Treble stitch.
Round two Puff stitch.
Round three double crochet.
Round four double crochet.
Round five single crochet.

If you are not a crocheter already you can check it out here. Its super easy.

Steps:


1. Chain 4. Join to make magic ring.

2. Round 1. (Color-Red) Chain 3. Wrap yarn twice on the hook. Going through the magic ring pull yarn through once. you will have 4 loops on the hook. Pull yarn through 2. Pull through 2 again. Pull through last 2. That's one treble complete. Wrap yarn on hook twice again to start a new stitch. Repeat for 16 more times. (total stitch count=18)
Weave in and fasten off the yarn tail.

3. Round 2. (Color-Green)Make a slip knot and join with the red ring just made. Chain 3. Wrap yarn around the hook, insert through the same hole and pull once. Wrap again and pull again. Repeat one more time. [i.e. 3 time in total] You will have 7 loops on the hook. Pull yarn through 6 of them leaving the last one. Now you will be left with 2 loops on the hook. Pull yarn through both of them and chain 1.
This stitch is called puffy stitch.
Repeat this for each hole. you should have 18 puffs by the end of this round. Fasten off and weave in the ends.



4. Round 3. (Color-Yellow)  Make a slip knot and join with the previous round. Chain 3. This round includes only double crochet stitches. Again we will be working in holes rather that stitches. Wrap yarn around the hook, insert through the hole we have joined our yarn with. Work a double crochet stitch but don't complete it. work 2 more double crochets in the same manner, but don't complete any of them. You will have 4 loops from the four double crochet stitches on the hook. Pull yarn through all of them and chain 2. work four double crochet in each of the next holes of this round. Join, fasten off and weave.

5. Round 4. (Color-Blue) Join the blue colored yarn to the previous round. this round is also worked in double crochets. Make 2 complete double crochets in first hole. make 2 more in next. in third hole work 5 double crochets in a single hole. We don't chain in between stitches in this round. The pattern is simple: 2 stitches in one, 2 in next and 5 stitches in 3rd. Repeat for the entire row. By the end of this round we will have 6 edges and 6 vertices.
Join the ends.

6. Round 5. (Color-Blue) We don't fasten off and weave but we continue for the last round. In this round we keep on crocheting single crochets in each previous stitch. when we reach the center of each vertex i.e. the 3rd stitch of the vertex, make 3 single crochet stitches in same stitch. this will make the vertex more detailed and will prevent hexagon from curving.
