* This Is Me Shawl * New free pattern on wilmade.com (link in bio) 💕
.
I decided to end this year with a shawl inspired by... myself! 🤗😉
.
I've used a gradient yarn cake with beautfiful pink/grey colors for a feminine touch.
.
I wanted to make a triangle shawl, because that’s currently my favorite shawl shape. I also wanted the shawl to be elegant and wide (but not too deep/long).
.
I absolutely love tassels, it really gives shawls a finishing touch😉
.
As always, I tried to make the pattern as simple as possible. You only need to repeat a few rows which are all very simple: mostly double crochet stitches and chains.
.
Yarn: Scheepjes Whirl

Even though my family couldn’t attend the wedding, they were with me through their unique handmade gifts.

The flower bouquet was made by my grannies (that’s right, the flowers are not real; it’s crochet!) and my shawl was knitted by my auntie. Amazing how much time and effort they put into it and how beautiful it turned out 🤗♥️

My wedding dress which mom and I made together♥️
.
We crocheted the top part with luxurious cashmere yarn from Katia, and sewed the skirt with matching fabrics that has beautiful flower motives.

As soon as I have more pictures, I will share a blog post with some details & close ups 🤗

This sweater you guys.. I’m sooo happy it’s finally ready 🎉
.
One year ago I got the last minute idea to make this sweater with moving eyes. It was already December so there was no chance to finish it in time. I gave up when I had to leave for a congress in Geneva one week before Christmas.
.
I decided to postpone the launch of this pattern to 2018. But again, I had to leave halfway November because of my wedding/honeymoon.
.
The last two weeks I’ve worked every second on this sweater and I managed to put it online the evening before we left ✈️
. 
The response has been amazing and thanks to this new design, I can now have a carefree trip without worrying too much about my blog.
.
Thanks so much for your support! I was so happy and relieved when I saw your positive comments after all the time, work and stress I put into this pattern. I can’t wait to see your sweaters 🤗

A while ago I received this beautiful crochet bag from a friend, Blanch from @brr230 💗  She's a lovely lady from Florida and one of the most helpful, caring women I've met in this amazing maker's community. She's involved in many good causes, one of them is a project that helps crafters all around the world who cannot afford yarn and supplies. 🙏
.
Her speciality is making handbags (as you can see on this picture) which she sells in her Etsy Shop called BeeOutrageous 🐝  The lining and ornaments are done very well, it gives the bags a very luxurious touch 😍.
.
I'm thankful for her beautiful bag and all the love she put into it. Make sure to show her some love over on her profile (@brr230), we need more people like her!💞

✨Milestone Journey Hat ✨ 
It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month! A while ago I got contacted by a lovely woman with hair loss. She asked if we could design a hat that is warm enough for cold winters, has some extra volume and which can be easily customized to match with different outfits.
.
We came up with a hat that:
- has a double layer (which makes it extra warm and adds some volume)
- has endless customization possibilities
- can be personalized with beads 
The beads represent a treatment, special event, victory or milestone and form a visible representation of the journey
.

The video explains how it works! Pattern can be found on wilmade.com (link in bio) 💕

Woohoo! 👏 I’ve been featured in the latest Flow Magazine, which is all about positive psychology, mindfulness and creativity. The article is about being real on social media and they did an interview on how I started showing pictures of myself here on Instagram and what made me decide to do this. I don’t think I would have been able to take this step without the love and positivity from you guys. Thank you all so much for giving me the opportunity to be myself and helping me get here 💕

You guys! Today I learnt something cool. The new iOs update for iPhone comes with a measurement tool and it's pretty accurate! Super useful when you don't have measurement tape nearby 📏
.
P.s. ignore the smacking sounds on the background, that was not me, but my pup 😛🙊
.
Super handig, met de nieuwe iOs update heb je nu een meetlint op je iPhone! Raak altijd m'n meetlinten kwijt (of het ligt boven wanneer ik beneden ben en andersom) dus ideaal zo! 😉

I finished my shawl with this fluffy yarn 🤗 It's bulky weight so works up pretty fast. Probably gonna share this pattern somewhere next week.
.
Today I'm spending some time with my mom, because we're working on my wedding dress together! Mom finished the second 'draft version' which I had to fit. Now it's time to start working on the real deal 😄👏

🇳🇱Vandaag ben ik bij mijn mams in Duitsland om aan de trouwjurk verder te werken. Mijn moeder had een tweede 'testversie' gemaakt (met verbeteringen tov de eerste versie) en die moest ik nog even passen. Nu is het tijd om voor het echie bezig te gaan 🤗👏
