Another custom rug finished and shipped out today :)

Rug crocheting has produced it's newest custom rug :) I finished it today and it's already on it's way to a customer in Staten Island, NY. I hope she will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!

The rug is made using the pattern of my Sara Doily Rug. It's finished size is 40" / 102cm in diameter.

Here are some photos of today's workload including the rug and off white square coasters that are now also available at Henna's Boutique.

Sara rugs in multiples, crochet storage bins and coasters :)

I have been working long hours on a custom order that will be soon shipping out to Australia. It contains multiple Sara doily rugs from my Etsy Shop. I took some photos today using 4 to 2 Sara rugs and also my crocheted storage bins. Here are some photos to enjoy :)

Some close ups of the crocheted storage bins.

In the photos below I used a hand painted soap dispenser I have gotten as a gift from my oldest and best friend. Isn't it lovely :)

My Two Doily Coaster Sets Were Featured!

When a local Knoxville, Tennessee event planner Mayra from In Flight contacted me through Etsy I was thrilled. She wanted to feature two sets of my crocheted doily coasters in her upcoming Valentine's Day shoot, and could not have been happier! The photos are now up. I have posted some of the photos from her blog here that feature my coasters and I urge all of you to go and take a look at all of the photos and the great ideas here. Everything looks so delicious and I am sure you will be able to pick up a couple of great ideas for your Valentine's Day celebration :)

Thank you so much Mayra!

Custom Handmade Crochet Doily Rug in Grass Green

Today I worked on a custom doily rug for a US customer. The middle part of the rug is the same as in my ALICIA doily rug. I custom created a different edging to the rug. I think I will be making a rug with this edging also to my shop. I love it's look.

This doily rug is crocheted out of 100% grass green cotton. The final size of the rug is 27.5" / 69cm.

In the photos I used two of my handmade stuffed animals I made last year. The poor animals still don't have permanent eyes, but the pins do a good job for now :)

Custom Crocheted Doily Rug and Crocheted Pouf

This year I have been blessed with many custom orders. I am very busy, but loving every minute of it. Being busy keeps me from completing my new items that I have not yet had a chance to take photos of, but soon I will be introducing them at my etsy shop :)

I have just completed a stone wash colored crocheted doily rug that was shipped today to Australia. The completed size is 54" (137cm).  The rug is crocheted out of cotton yarn, I used the yarn triple to make it strong and thick.

Another custom item I finished was a floor pouf / pillow. I crocheted it from cotton yarn and made a lining from cotton fabric. . It's  filled with polyester fill. The pouf's size is 5.5" x 7.5" (14cm x 19cm). I turned out really cute, I will have to make some more soon and in different sizes.

I am now looking forward to tackling the next custom doily rugs in grass green, plum and robin egg! I can't wait to post photos when they are finished.
